The test continues for Chelsea who seek to seal the third position sport in the Premier League table with a win against Burnley later on Sunday.

The Blues will be again, playing without star player Eden Hazard who has been sidelined as a result of the back injury he sustained in their Premier League 2-2 draw against Manchester United.

A win for Chelsea will ensure a more competitive season for the Premier League with the closeness in points between the first six teams.

However, there will be no room for gamble with the North London side expected to file up their strongest team as the game poses to be a difficult one for the Maurizio Sarri team.

So far, there seems to be no strong competition with goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga which makes it almost certain for the Spaniard to start in the middle of the poles.

Also, Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Marcos Alonso are believed to be the winning side Sarri has always made use of, hence a change will not be expected especially with no injury concerns.

With Hazard already out to back injury, the midfield will accommodate Mateo Kovacic, Jorjinho and most definitely N’Golo Kante in what is expected to be a 4-3-3 formation.

While the attack will be completed by Willian, Pedro and Olivier Giroud or Alvaro Morata.
