Chelsea will kick start their Premier League campaign on Saturday against Burnley at Stamford Bridge. Who will come out on top?
As far as Conte’s team news is concerned, star playmaker Eden Hazard and summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko are out injured and will not feature.
In the absence of the French defensive midfielder, we can expect Fabregas and Kante to start in the center of the park for the Blues.
Victor Moses is suspended for the contest and therefore, Spanish international Cesar Azpilicueta will probably start in the right wing-back position instead.
Antonio Rudiger should get the nod start with the likes of Luiz and Cahill in the back line for Chelsea. In the attacking third, record signing Alvaro Morata should start as the lone center forward up front. Behind him, Pedro and Willian are expected to play in the attacking midfield.
Here is Chelsea’s strongest possible 3-4-3 XI vs Burnley.
