CHELSEA vs BURNLEY

Chelsea are without United States forward Christian Pulisic for a number of weeks after he picked up an adductor injury in training.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is still some way from a playing return as he continues rehabilitation from heel surgery.

Burnley are expected to be without striker Ashley Barnes as he waits to learn the full extent of a groin problem.

Midfielder Johann Berg Gudmundsson (hamstring) is unavailable while striker Jay Rodriguez and defender Phil Bardsley could both miss out through illness, but leading goalscorer Chris Wood (hamstring) is likely to be fit.

Burnley XI: Pope, Lowton Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil, Lennon, Wood.

Subs: Hart, Gibson, Pieters, Bardsley, Vydra, Long, Koiki.

Chelsea XI: Kepa, James, Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Jorginho, Barkley, Mount, Willian, Hudson-Odoi, Abraham.

Subs: Caballero, Pedro, Zouma, Kovacic, Batshuayi, Tomori, Emerson.
