Kante still out, Starts for Pulisic and Batshuayi – How Chelsea should line up vs Burnley

Frank Lampard has some real decisions to make against Burnley tomorrow, and I’m sure the pondering will be giving him a headache as we speak.

Christian Pulisic has given him a good problem, he has been performing well when called upon in recent substitute appearances and is really knocking hard on the door for a start now, and deservedly so.

But Callum Hudson-Odoi and Willian have also both been performing in recent matches albeit Callum had an off game in midweek.

Mason Mount had been looking tired and had a few quiet games, but he performed well again against Ajax this week to re-stake a claim.

So where does Pulisic fit in? Personally, I think he might finally be handed a start for either Mount or Hudson-Odoi tomorrow.

Michy Batshauyi has also been knocking hard on the same door as Pulisic and could get a start tomorrow to give Abraham a rest.

Antonio Rudiger, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Andreas Christensen, N’Golo Kante and Ross Barkley are all still out injured.

So here is my preferred Chelsea Xl vs Burnley (4-2-3-1) –

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Zouma, Tomori, Emerson. Jorginho, Kovacic. Hudson-Odoi, Pulisic, Willian. Batshuayi.
