The Burnley vs Chelsea live stream will see the World Club Champions head north to face a Burnley side still trying to climb out of the relegation zone. It’s been a turbulent week in West London with the future of Chelsea football club suddenly looking uncertain, so a convincing win is exactly what the fanbase needs right now.

Burnley may have lost 0-2 to Leicester in midweek, but Sean Dyche will still be pleased with his side’s recent uptick in form. They've taken 7 points from their last 12 available, which has been enough to drag them off the bottom of the table and within a single point of safety. That run also saw them beat both Tottenham and Brighton, who are both in the top half of the table. 

There’s a dogged resilience about Burnley which makes them an extremely hard side to play. Even when they lose, they typically only do so by a goal or two; rarely do they receive a real thrashing. This ability to stay in games is exactly the type of characteristic that could see them get something against a Chelsea team that could be preoccupied by outside distractions.  

This week it was announced that after almost two decades of ownership Roman Abramovich is looking to sell Chelsea football club. This seemingly forced sale comes after pressure was piled on the Russian business tycoon in the wake of the war in Ukraine. Of course, on the pitch everything is as it was, but there’s a sense of impending change at Chelsea that could soon impact all aspects of the club. 

Chelsea did play in midweek in the FA Cup against Luton Town. The Premier League side managed to get the job done, but it was a nervy affair with Luton twice taking the lead before a Romelu Lukaku goal in the 78th minute secured Chelsea’s passage into the next round. Manager Thomas Tuchel will hope for a less dicey match against Burnley. 

The sting of losing the Carabao Cup final to Liverpool on penalties is another factor that could influence this game, although, a statement win from Chelsea would go some way to putting that disappointing day at Wembley behind them. Of course, Burnley will have no intention of rolling over, so expect this one to be a tight game with possibly just a single goal in it. 

Here's how they line up:

Burnley: Pope, Taylor, Tarkowski, Collins, Roberts, Lennon, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil, Weghorst, Rodriguez.

Chelsea: Mendy, Rudiger, Chalobah, Silva, James, Kante, Jorginho, Saul, Mount, Pulisic, Havertz.
