OFFICIAL LINE-UP: Burnley vs Chelsea – Ziyech starts

Chelsea face Burnley at Turf Moor in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

A bust schedule is giving Frank Lampard plenty of reasons to rotate his lineup, and key figure Thiago Silva returns to the backline after missing the trip to Russia in midweek.

There’s also a surprise start for Tammy Abraham up front, with Timo Werner sitting this game out.

Hakim Ziyech starts his first Premier League match on the right wing, with Christian Pulisic in need of a good game down the left.

The midfield is an interesting 3, with N’Golo Kante flanked by Kai Havertz and Mason Mount. There is no Jorginho or Mateo Kovacic to be seen.

It’s the standard back 5 we have come to expect in the Premier League now. Another clean sheet would be a truly impressive feat, and would get us a long way towards 3 points.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Burnley (kick off at 15:00 pm GMT)
