The Chelsea vs Burnley live stream sees a potential mismatch between the Premier League's top team and one that's in the relegation danger zone. These clubs have experienced very different seasons so far and it'll be a stunner if Burnley can manage to walk away from the pitch with even a point.
Still, Burnley are riding high after notching their first win this season, a 3-1 surprise over Brentford. The Clarets absolutely needed those three crucial points to start clawing their way up the table. Before that match, manager Sean Dyche did counsel supporters not to panic and his side did end up proving that it isn't too late to turn the campaign around. The attack really came together, with Chris Wood, Matthew Lowton and Maxwel Cornet all putting one into the net.
All the Clarets need is three points to catch up with several teams: Aston Villa, Watford and Leeds United. But taking them off first-place Chelsea, and at Stamford Bridge no less, will be a very tough task.
The Blues will be ultra-confident as they are top of the table and going against a relegation-zone team at home, particularly after blistering Newcastle 3-0 last weekend and triumphing over Malmo in mid-week Champions League action.
Thomas Tuchel will have a bit of massaging to do with the lineup, since Romelu Lukaku, Mateo Kovacic and Timo Werner are out with injury and Mason Mount is only the bench due to some wisdom tooth trouble. But Christian Pulisic is healthy again and makes it on to the bench, while Ross Barley is recalled for a first start since 2020.
Here's how they line up:
Chelsea: Mendy, Rudiger, Christensen, Silva, Chilwell, James, Kante, Jorginho, Barkley, Hudson-Odoi, Havertz.
Burnley: Pope, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Lowton, Brownhill, Westwood, McNeil, Gudmundsson, Cornet, Wood.
