Chelsea take on Burnley away from home and the Blues will be without their key man Eden Hazard. The Belgian didn’t make the squad as is still recovering from a back injury he picked up in the draw against Manchester United last weekend.
Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri made a host of changes against BATE Borisov and the key players return for the trip to Burnley.
In Hazard’s absence, Pedro gets a start and he’ll want to impress after his own good start to the season was prematurely halted due to an injury.
Ross Barkley scored the late equaliser against Manchester United last weekend and he gets a start over Kovacic who has been rested. Alvaro Morata is once again prefered to Olivier Giroud in attack.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek, the hat-trick hero from the Europa League, is on the bench. Here is the Chelsea team in full.
