Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Burnley FC


The two teams duking it out for the fourth and final UCL qualification position from the Premier League table has the same major problem- ridiculous inconsistency. Fifth place Manchester United and fourth place Chelsea have the same issue- beating the big boys, losing to the small sides.

Chelsea have beaten Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, but they have also taken just one point from Bournemouth, Southampton, and Brighton & Hove Albion. Up next is a home fixture against Burnley, who currently sit 15th in the table. In the reverse fixture, Christian Pulisic netted a hat trick, but he’s out injured for this one. So who will take his place in the line-up? What about the other ten men on the pitch?
