Burnley vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Chelsea travel to face Burnley on Sunday looking to take another step towards the Premier League title.

Burnley were beaten 2-1 away at Watford last time out, with Jeff Hendrick dismissed inside of 10 minutes for the visitors.

Goals from Troy Deeney and Mbaye Niang secured all three points for the Hornets.

Chelsea effectively ended Arsenal’s title hopes with a comfortable 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge.

Eden Hazard’s superb solo goal was the pick of the bunch as Chelsea’s relentless run continued.

Team news
Burnley will be without the banned Hendrick as well as the injured Steven Defour here.

New signing Ashley Westwood is set to start, with fellow January addition Robert Brady likely to be involved as well.

Chelsea are unlikely to name any surprises in their XI, with the same side that beat Arsenal expected to take the field.

Willian could replace Pedro in the only possible change.

Burnley (4-4-2): Heaton; Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward; Boyd, Westwood, Barton, Brady; Barnes, Gray
Chelsea (3-4-3): Courtois; Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill; Moses, Matic, Kante, Alonso; Hazard, Costa, Pedro
