Burnley v Chelsea odds, free bets, team news as Paddy Power enhance Diego Costa price

Its Burnley v Chelsea tonight with latest odds, betting and free bets as Paddy Power boost Diego Costa anytime goalscorer odds from 5/4 to 9/2!

Burnley’s return to the Premier League could hardly have started with a more difficult fixture, as they welcome Chelsea to Turf Moor.

Sean Dyche’s side were one of the favourites to be relegated from the Championship last campaign, yet stunned the league to earn promotion.

In Jose Mourinho’s first season back in charge of Chelsea, the Blues missed out on silverware, although much is expected this time around.

That is partly due to the summer arrivals of Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Felipe Luis, bolstering the areas of weakness at Stamford Bridge.

Burnley have hardly spent in comparison, although the experienced duo of Matthew Taylor and Steven Reid have joined on free transfers.

The Clarets biggest deal was to bring Lukas jutkiewicz to Turf Moor from Middlesbrough and he has impressed during pre-season for his new club.

Chelsea did the double over Burnley when the pair last met in the Premier League, with John Terry scoring the winner at Monday’s location.

Team news
Burnley look set to keep faith with the majority of the squad that earned promotion to the Premier League.

Jutkiewicz and Taylor will make their league debuts, having joined from Middlesbrough and West Ham respectively.

Michael Duff will partner captain Jason Shackell in the heart of Burnley’s defence, that was so key to their Premier League return.

Sam Vokes is out through injury, meaning Danny Ings will start up front after a superb 2013/14 campaign at Turf Moor.

Chelsea have selection dilemmas over their own, after numerous players went far at the 2014 World Cup.

Felipe Luis, Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa look set for debuts, along with Thiabut Courtois, who spent the last three seasons on loan at Atletico Madrid.

Mohammed Salah featured frequently during pre-season and looks set to start ahead of either Willian or Oscar.

Didier Drogba will be on the bench after re-signing for the club over the summer, along with Fernando Torres, who is perhaps surprisingly still at Stamford Bridge.

Burnley (4-4-2): Heaton, Trippier, Duff, Shackell, Mee, Arfield, Marney, Jones, Taylor, Ings, Jutkiewicz
Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Courtois, Ivanovic, Terry, Cahill, Luis, Fabregas, Matic, Willian, Hazard, Salah, Costa
