Chelsea are aiming for a fourth victory in five Premier League matches and a place in the top four.

Team news

Maurizio Sarri hopes Eden Hazard will shake off a knock sustained during Chelsea's UEFA Europa League victory over Slavia Prague on Thursday night.

Antonio Rudiger will miss out due to a knee injury.

Burnley defender Phil Bardsley (gashed leg) will be assessed. Peter Crouch is still out of action following appendix surgery, as is Steven Defour (calf).

Did you know?

Chelsea have only lost one of their last 20 PL home matches, winning 12 and drawing seven. No side have conceded fewer PL home goals this term than their 10, the same as Liverpool.

All of N’Golo Kante's three PL goals this season have been the winners. That is the best such 100 per cent record in the competition.

Eden Hazard has nine goals from 17 PL matches played on a Monday, more than any other Chelsea player. He netted a brace in his last match on that day, v West Ham United this month.

Burnley have won three consecutive PL matches for the second time this season. They last won more in a row in the competition in April 2018, with a run of five.
