How should Chelsea line up against Burnley on Saturday to make it four wins in a row?

In a few short hours, Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte will address the assembled media at Cobham.  He will get to talk about how we're still pursuing the "right players" in this "crazy market" and blah blah blahity blah.  Less than a week left; plenty of time to sign the next Djilobodji, right?

Transfer market whining aside — welcome, Jason Statham's bearded Portuguese brother! — there's football to be played and winning streaks to maintain (winning >>> whining).  Conte is three of three so far, with three one-goal decisions, two of them coming from behind and winning late.  Feel-good stuff, even if not quite confidence-inspiring from certain perspectives.

Other than the aforementioned new third-choice goalkeeper, the squad available remains unchanged.  Zouma is of course out still, but Willian was back in training yesterday, and is presumably available for selection after missing the past week with a calf problem.  Mikel's also back, but is not expected to play until after the upcoming international break.  I did add Dom Solanke into the selection list following his resurrection onto the substitutes bench on Tuesday.

On paper, Burnley are not very good, but all that can go out the window pretty quickly come Saturday.  Choose wisely.
