Burnley vs. Chelsea, Premier League: Confirmed lineups

New, comments

For Chelsea, it's all about the right "tension" today, to use Conte's word.  Chelsea must concentrate, pay attention, play hard, and not get complacent.

A win would guarantee that Chelsea open up a double-digit lead at the top of the Premier League (12 or 10, depending on what Manchester City do tomorrow).

Let's go!

Both teams exactly as expected.  Ake on the bench instead of Terry and his gashed ankle.

It might be snowing.

COME ON, CHELSEA!
