Predicted Chelsea lineup (3-4-3) vs Burnley

How Chelsea should lineup vs Burnley

Chelsea will seek to extend their nine-point lead over Tottenham Hotspur in the league standings when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon.

The Clarets have had an excellent home record this season having won nine of their 13 games, and this is only bettered by Spurs and the Blues.

Formation: 3-4-3

Lineup:

Thibaut Courtois: The Belgian has been the Mr.dependable for the Blues this season. His saves against Arsenal were eventually key to their convincing 3-1 win.

Cesar Azpilcueta: Has not got much credit this season, but he still remains a key player under Antonio Conte.

David Luiz: The Brazil international has earned the plaudits for his recent exploits including his sublime free-kick versus Liverpool.

Gary Cahill: The skipper has been solid at the back this seasonĀ and still has the ability to get a goal or two from set pieces.

Victor Moses: The Nigeria international has managed to make the right wing-back role his own this season owing to the Blues' lack of reinforcements in the position.

Marcos Alonso: Alonso had initially received stick for his performances before he turned up with a brace in the win over Leicester City. He also netted a header in the victory over the Gunners last weekend.

N'Golo Kante: Surely the man-of-the-match versus Arsenal if not for Eden Hazard's sublime solo effort. The Frenchman is a sure starter in the holding role.

Cesc Fabregas: The Spaniard has impressed from the substitutes' bench on occasions, and his threaded passes could be key to breaking the Clarets backline.

Eden Hazard: The star of the previous week. Hazard is currently carrying a minor calf problem, but this is unlikely to prevent him from making the starting lineup.

Willian: The attacker was benched in favour of Pedro in the previous game. It may be the opposite this time around.

Diego Costa: Costa has already notched 15 goals this campaign, and he will seek to further his account against the Clarets, who are known to be defensively sound at home.
