The target for Chelsea is to consolidate their place in the top four of the Premier League with a win over Burnley at home when the two teams meet for their second league meeting of this season.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will be hoping for a change of fortunes when they face Burnley at Stamford Bridge where their recent record is not encouraging.
The Blues have won just one of their last four games at home in the Premier League while losing the other three games and those losses have been against teams in the bottom half of the table which is where next opponents Burnley find themselves.

Ahead of the game against Burnley, Frank Lampard is expected to revert back to his normal starting XI after he made nine changes for the Nottingham Forest match in the third round of the FA Cup last weekend.
Despite the wholesale changes, Chelsea had too much quality for English Championship side Nottingham Forest whom they beat 2-0 at home through the first half goals from Callum Hudson-Odoi and Ross Barkley who are both England internationals.
Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso is a doubt for the Burnley game with glute injury though the Spaniard is expected to be fit in time for the league clash billed for Saturday evening.
