Chelsea will have an extra onus upon them when they face Burnley tonight as all of their top four rivals have dropped points on what was a riveting weekend of Premier League football.
The Blues could be set to welcome Eden Hazard to the line up after the Belgian suffered a ‘strong knock’ against Slavia Praha but it remains highly unlikely that Antonio Rudiger will be back to the fray.
Marcos Alonso is expected to take over from Emerson after the Spaniard was rested on Thursday night.
Olivier Giroud could also get a rare league start under Sarri after another solid performance in the Europa League.
Probable team: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Alonso; Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek; Hudson-Odoi, Giroud, Hazard.
