Predicted Chelsea lineup (4-3-3) to face Burnley, Higuain and Hazard start

Predicted Chelsea Lineup vs Burnley

Chelsea are scheduled to entertain Burnley in Monday's Premier League meeting at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are currently fifth in the league standings after 34 games played, but they can potentially leapfrog both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur above them with a victory over the Clarets.

Formation: 4-3-3

Predicted Lineup:

Kepa Arrizabalaga has been the undisputed choice in goal for the Premier League duties this term and the Spaniard should command the role between the sticks against the Clarets.

In the backline, Cesar Azpilicueta and Emerson have been the regular choices on the right and left side of the defence of late, and they are very much certain to keep their places.

Likewise, Andreas Christensen should partner David Luiz at the heart of the defence with Antonio Rudiger still doubtful with a minor knee injury picked up against Liverpool this month.

In the centre of the park, Jorginho and N'Golo Kante are certain to feature from the off and they could be accompanied by Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who has recently got the nod over Ross Barkley and Mateo Kovacic for the third midfield spot.

In the frontline, Hazard should certainly keep his position on the left wing, but there could be changes in the other attacking spots. Willian could get a game ahead of Pedro on the opposite flank while Gonzalo Higuain may lead the line in Olivier Giroud's place.
