Burnley are still without the services of the injured Jack Cork and Ben Mee, both of whom will likely remain sidelined until after the international break.

Phil Bardsley's positive coronavirus test kept him out of the loss to Spurs and he is set to miss out again this weekend, while Erik Pieters is touch and go with a calf problem.

However, Dyche could very well stick with the same starting lineup from the weekend defeat, with Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood set to form a partnership up top despite pressure from Matej Vydra and Jay Rodriguez, but the Clarets manager has revealed that Johann Berg Gudmundsson is doubtful with a calf issue.
Burnley possible starting lineup:
Pope; Lowton, Long, Tarkowski, Taylor; Gudmundsson, Westwood, Brownhill, McNeil; Wood, Barnes
Burnley Premier League form: LLLDL
Burnley form (all competitions): WLLLDL

Meanwhile, Chelsea's only two injury concerns are Kepa Arrizabalaga and Billy Gilmour - neither of whom would have been likely to force their way into the starting lineup.

Thiago Silva did not make the trip to Krasnodar in midweek, but Lampard confirmed that the defender's absence was not injury-related and Silva should come back into the first XI here.

Saturday could be the day that we see Chelsea's attacking quartet of Ziyech, Kai Havertz, Pulisic and Werner all line up together for the first time.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; James, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kante, Jorginho; Ziyech, Havertz, Pulisic; Werner
Chelsea Premier League form: WLDWDD
Chelsea form (all competitions): LWDDDW

Prediction: Burnley 1-3 Chelsea
