Champions League - They're Having a Laugh
The Clarets won this fixture 1-0 last season and are making it a regular in their spectacular current campaign.
You reach a point where you can’t ignore the evidence in front of you even if the underlying metrics point you in another direction. I am of course talking about Burnley.
A win on Tuesday night would temporarily move Sean Dyche’s team into the Champions League spots and you would have to say that would be a spectacular early Christmas present for the Lancashire club.
Against a Stoke side with the worst defensive record in the division, who have won once in their last six games, they have every chance. But don’t take the best price 13/10 on the home win when 6/1 on 1-0 to the Clarets is available with Bet365.
Burnley have won 5 of their last 13 league games by that scoreline which makes a mockery of the price still available. With Mark Hughes determined to start by improving things at the back it could well happen again.
