Up next for the Blues is Burnley at home. A team that we absolutely obliterated in the first game against them this season winning 4-2. A game Christian Pulisic showed us what he is worth after bagging a perfect hattrick against The Clarets. Christian will, unfortunately, be out for this game after picking up an injury just before the Nottingham Forrest game. A win will be very important for Chelsea as it is crucial that they keep the gap between United and them to only 5 points and nothing less. On the other side, Burnley would be looking to at least get 1 point from this fixture after losing all 3 of their last 3 games in the Premier League. Burnley does have their fair share of attacking threats coming straight through the middle with 14 Goals between the two Forwards upfront (8 goals for Wood; 6 goals for Barnes respectively). Burnley have a decent defence, most notably their Keeper, Nick Pope. The Burnley Keeper has the second most clean sheets this season with 7. Hudson-Odoi would be one to look out for, after scoring and allowing Barkley a tap-in in the last game against Forest. Reece will also be one to look out for, after what felt like a hundred pinpoint crosses and was very unlucky to not get an assist. A win will be very important for the Blues so let's hope they get it done at the Bridge. Team News: Pulisic will be out injured as mentioned above for a few weeks. Alonso is still out injured along with Ruben Loftus-Cheek. Predicted Lineup: (4-3-3) Kepa, James, Zouma, Tomori, Emerson, Jorginho, Kovacic, Mount, Hudson-Odoi*, Willian, Tammy. *CHO to play on the right to build the chemistry with Reece as well as he looked very lively on the right against Forrest. Score Prediction: Chelsea 3 - 1 Burnley
