Chelsea without four player for Burnley clash

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed four absentees for the upcoming Premier League clash against Burnley.

The Blues are currently three points ahead of Liverpool at the top of the table, and can extend their advantage tomorrow.

Ahead of the game, they are expected to be without four players.

Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner suffered ankle and hamstring injuries last month. They are out for an undefined period of time.

Mateo Kovacic is also on the sidelines with a hamstring injury while Marcos Alonso suffered an ankle problem in midweek against Malmo.

They have received some good news on the fitness front with Mason Mount available after being out with a wisdom tooth infection.

Mount has not trained over the past week, and Tuchel hinted that the England international may feature off the bench tomorrow.

The Blues have enjoyed playing against the Clarets. They have won six of the last seven meetings. The other game ended in a draw.
