There is still an awful lot of football to be played in the 2021-22 Premier League season, but Chelsea have been the standout team in the competition this term, winning eight, drawing one and losing one of their 10 matches to collect 25 points, which has left them three points clear of second-placed Liverpool at the summit.
While the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United have all had their problems this season, Chelsea have continued to pick up points, and the fact that they have only conceded three times in their first 10 league games of the season is not good news for their rivals for the title.
The Blues have won each of their last seven matches across three separate competitions, including a 3-0 victory away to Newcastle United in the Premier League, while they beat Malmo 1-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday night to move within touching distance of the last-16 stage of the competition.
Thomas Tuchel‘s side will be desperate to keep hold of first position in the league entering the international break, particularly considering that they will end November with fixtures against Leicester City and Man United, before taking on Watford and West Ham United away at the start of December.
Chelsea have won each of their last four matches at Stamford Bridge, while they have won their last four Premier League games against Burnley, scoring 12 times and conceding just twice in the process.
Chelsea will again be without the services of Romelu Lukaku, Mateo Kovacic and Timo Werner through injury, while Mason Mount remains a doubt due to illness despite returning to training on Thursday.
N’Golo Kante was not used against Malmo in the Champions League on Tuesday but could be available here; Tuchel, though, will find it difficult to drop Ruben Loftus-Cheek to the bench due to the Englishman’s impressive display last time out.
Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi are expected to support Kai Havertz in the final third of the field, while Reece James and Ben Chilwell should come back into the side in the wing-back areas, having been left on the bench for the European contest during the week.
As for Burnley, Dyche revealed during Thursday’s pre-match press conference that Dale Stephens is still unavailable due to a foot injury, while Aaron Lennon is a doubt through illness.
The visitors are otherwise in good shape, and it would not be a surprise to see the same XI that took to the field for the first whistle against Brentford, with Cornet joining Wood in the final third of the field.

Indeed, a 4-4-2 formation should see Dwight McNeil and Johann Berg Gudmundsson operate in the wide areas, with Josh Brownhill joining Westwood in the middle of the park.
