Team News

Chelsea’s squad depth and quality is under doubt, having sold or loaned most of the fringe players. The likes of Nemanja Matic, Nathan Ake and Nathaniel Chalobah have left without any replacements and Diego Costa is also expected to secure a move away before the transfer window shuts.

Injuries to Eden Hazard and Tiemou Bakayoko, and Victor Moses’ suspension means Chelsea will be severely depleted in their first game of the season. New signings are expected before the transfer window closes, but Che

Burnley will be without the injured Dean Marney.

Chelsea Possible Starting Lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta, N’Golo Kante, Cesc Fabregas, Marcos Alonso, Pedro, Michy Batshuayi, Willian.

Burnley Possible Starting Lineup: Tom Heaton, Matthew Lowton, James Tarkowski, Ben Mee, Stephen Ward, Scott Arfield, Jack Cork, Jeff Hendrick, Robbie Brady, Sam Vokes, Jonathan Walters.
