Burnley vs Chelsea team news and lineup



Burnley vs Chelsea

Chelsea FC will be back in action on Sunday in the English Premier League as they travel to Turf Moor to play against Burnley.

This comes after the Blues defeated BATE Borisov in the Uefa Europa League with three goals to one, all thanks to Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

There are indications that Maurizio Sarri will likely give Ruben Loftus-Cheek his first chance in the EPL following his performance in the UEL.

Sarri will likely change the Blues defenders altogether, and the duo of Jorginho and Kante will return to the midfield.

Chelsea talisman and Belgium international, Eden Hazard is likely to miss the trip to Turf Moor as he is still suffering from a back injury.

Below is how Chelsea can lineup against Burnley:

Goalpost: Kepa Arrizabalaga will be back in action.

Defense: Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azplicueta will play on the left and right wing while David Luiz and Antonio Rudiger will return to the centre back.

Midfield: Sarri will likely start the trio of Jorginho, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and N’golo Kante at the midfield.

Attack: since Eden Hazard will not be available, the duo of Willian and Pedro will play at the left and right wing while Olivier Giroud will return as the center forward.
