Chelsea welcome Burnley at Stamford Bridge today after their 1-0 victory over Malmo FF on Tuesday’s Champions League, Thomas Tuchel’s men will continue their premier league title chase as they take on Burnley at 4pm kick off time.
When take you through how Tuchel will lineup Chelsea against Burnley as the latest injury update before the game.
Marco’s Alonso has joined the likes of Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku in the blues injuries list but Mount will fill in the wing-backs option for the Chelsea today.
N’Golo Kante was left back at Cobham as the rest of the Chelsea squad travelled to Sweden in order to get a full week of preparation for Burnley.
Despite Burnley sitting third from bottom heading into Saturday’s game, Tuchel has warned his side that they could be victims of an upset against Sean Dyche’s strugglers.
He said: “We expect a very tough match and an opponent who is a bit short of points but not short of performance.
“Burnley plays a strong, very intense game, they are very courageous in their approach like how they played at Manchester City with high and intensive pressing so we need to be on our best level to match all the intensity they bring.
“We demand a lot from our players and from ourselves, but it is necessary that we bring all this to the pitch because there is a strong opponent waiting.
“It could be reasonable to say that we have won six of seven matches, somehow we will manage it again as we have a home game and we have a strong squad, but we have to be at the 100 percent level, 95 is not enough and that is why we push everybody, no matter if we are tired or not.”
Chelsea predicted XI: Mendy; Christensen, Silva, Rudiger; James, Kante, Loftus-Cheek, Chilwell; Ziyech, Havertz, Hudson-Odoi
