Chelsea v Burnley

Eighteen-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi makes his fourth Premier League start for Chelsea – one of four changes from the side that edged past Slavia Prague in the Europa League on Thursday.

Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek also returns along with forward Gonzalo Higuaín and midfielder Jorginho.

Out go Ross Barkley, Mateo Kovacic, Pedro and Olivier Giroud – all four are on the bench.

Chelsea XI: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Emerson Palmieri, Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Higuain, Hazard.

Subs: Barkley, Pedro, Caballero, Kovacic, Giroud, Zappacosta, Cahill.

Burnley have won their last three games so it is no surprise that Sean Dyche names an unchanged side.

That means a 17th Premier League start for 19-year-old Dwight McNeil – goalkeeper Tom Heaton is captain.

Burnley XI: Heaton, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil, Barnes, Wood.

Subs: Gudmundsson, Brady, Gibson, Hart, Ward, Vydra, Long.
