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.
