Premier League - Burnley v Chelsea

A first victory of the season would lift Burnley, who lie 18th with one point, out of the bottom three.

Chelsea have won just one of their last four Premier League matches but have triumphed in five of their six trips to Turf Moor.

Chelsea have scored four goals in each of their last two visits to Turf Moor, with Christian Pulisic netting a hat-trick in this fixture last season.
