How should Chelsea line up against Burnley to keep winning-streak going?

Chelsea have one more game left before the international break, and it should be yet another eminently winnable one, even if Burnley can be quite annoying and Sean Dyche is still able to call upon the likes of Ashley Barnes and Phil Bardsley (and even talented players like Maxwel Cornet).

We should have a slightly larger squad available however than on Tuesday, when N’Golo Kanté was rested and Mason Mount was still dealing with some sort of illness. I’d expect both of them to be available once again, with Christian Pulisic also continuing to build up his fitness levels.

We will still be without Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, and Mateo Kovacic; hopefully they can use the international break to get fully fit ahead of the winter grind.

Chelsea have won seven in a row in all competitions and can go a perfect eight-for-eight between the October and November international breaks. It’s been a relatively easy schedule, but we’ve taken full advantage of it to go three points clear (and make progress in both the Champions League and the League Cup). Titles are won by taking care of expected business.

Choose wisely.
