Ziyech and Tomori to start- Predicted Chelsea line up v Burnley away

Chelsea will be looking to continue the fine form shown on Wednesday night with a trip to struggling Burnley. Frank Lampard has confirmed there are no new injury concerns.

Formation: 4-3-3

Goalkeeper and defence

Edouard Mendy will definitely start after an excellent start to his Chelsea career. The summer window signing has kept four clean-sheets in five appearances since his move from Rennes.

Another new boy, Ben Chilwell, has also impressed. The former Leicester man should start at left-back. The right-back role is more competitive as far as who will get the nod. Cesar Azpilicueta or Reece James. I think the latter will start tomorrow. Thiago Silva remained in London during the week. Indicating he will start at Turf Moor. Antonio Rudiger put in a good performance in Russia, leaving Frank Lampard with something to think about. Fikayo Tomori will also be keen to be given a chance. Maybe this is a perfect opportunity following the long trip back from Russia, and a quick turnaround.


There is plenty of competition for places in a three-man midfield. The trio I would opt for would be N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount, with Kai Havertz at the tip. It’s a midfield that should offer a good level of creativity.

Front three

Hakim Ziyech made a big impression on his full debut. I would start the Moroccan again. Christian Pulisic made an impression by coming off the bench in Russia. A start in his preferred left-wing role could cause Burnley problems. The American announced himself to the premier league at Turf Moor last season, by netting a perfect hattrick.



Blue is the colour is an honest insight to the World of Chelsea FC. Not always pretty, sometimes rather cynical, but always realistic.
