Chelsea vs Burnley – Team News » Chelsea News

Chelsea face Burnley at Stamford Bridge in just under an hour, and the teams are in!

Thomas Tuchel has made major changes once again, but the 3 at the back continues, with the same 3 central defenders.

The notable changes are Marcos Alonso returning from exile at left back, and Callum Hudson-Odoi on the right wing.

Mason Mount is back in the team after his break in midweek, featuring in a midfield with Jorginho, while Mateo Kovacic drops out. Up front, Olivier Giroud is replaced by Tammy Abraham who gets his chance to impress the new manager.

Timo Werner is back in the side too, playing in the role behind the striker that Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech occupied last time. Given how Frank Lampard struggled to get the striker to function, it will be interesting to see what instructions he’s given today in an attempt to find his shooting boots.

Here are the full team line-ups for Chelsea vs Burnley (kick off at 12:00 pm GMT)
