Burnley Vs Chelsea Preview, Prediction, Team news, Lineups

Let me do a quick Burnley Vs Chelsea Preview. Burnley will be hosting Chelsea tomorrow night with the opportunity to go past Arsenal and move into sixth place in the Premier League standings.

Chelsea are also looking to strengthen their position over Arsenal, while victory at Turf Moor would move Antonio Conte’s team to within five points of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

Burnley Vs Chelsea Preview: Team News

Conte has said that there are no problems with defender Antonio Rudiger and that the German international could feature on Thursday night.

January signing Emerson Palmieri will start – not considering of whether Marcos Alonso receives a ban for a tackle on Southampton forward Shane Long – while Ross Barkley is in strife to make an appearance.

Conte must also decide between Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud with the latter scoring twice after coming off the bench against the Saints.

Dyche has said that neither Ben Mee or Scott Arfield will be available for selection as they go on with recovering from their respective injuries.

The Burnley boss could maintain the same starting lineup after the club’s 2-1 victory over Leicester City last weekend.
