Chelsea have doubts over a few players ahead of their Premier League meeting with Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening in what was one of the Matchday 22 games in the English top flight.
American international Christian Pulisic is in his first season at Chelsea and he scored a hat trick when the two teams met earlier this season in the league.
Pulisic scored three goals as Chelsea beat Burnley 4-2 in the reverse fixture played last year at the Turf Moor and he’s a doubt for the latest meeting between the two clubs at the home of Chelsea.

He missed the FA Cup third round meeting with Nottingham Forest from the English Championship last weekend with an unspecified injury picked up in training thus making him a doubt for the Burnley game.
Chelsea midfielders Marko Van Ginkel and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are working their way to full fitness and are still far away from the pitch, while Nigerian-born England international centre back Fikayo Tomori is expected to return to the Cheslea squad after missing the last two games in all competitions because of illness.
Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso is also a doubt for the Burnley as the Spanish left-back is recovering from glute injury.
