Chelsea are back on the road as they return to Premier League action with a trip to Burnley.

The Blues eased to a 4-0 Champions League win at Krasnodar on Thursday, with Hakim Ziyech in sparkling form as Frank Lampard’s forward line clicked in Russia.

Chelsea are yet to fully find their feet domestically, taking nine points from their opening six games as Lampard has struggled to balance a thrilling attack with a porous defence.

But after three clean sheets in a row, Lampard will be looking for his side to prove they can find that balance on a regular basis - starting at Turf Moor on Saturday

Date, kick-off time and venue

Burnley vs Chelsea kicks off at 3pm GMT on Saturday, October 31, 2020 at Turf Moor.

How to watch - TV channel and live stream

The match will be shown on Sky Sports Box Office and is available for £14.95.

Team news

Lampard says Thiago Silva will return after being rested for the trip to Krasnodar. 

Kepa Arrizabalaga is on the comeback trail, while Chelsea have no other injury issues to worry about.x

Prediction: Burnley 0-1 Chelsea

Expect the Blues to once again be tight at the back. Tottenham recently left Turf Moor with a 1-0 victory, and it would be no surprise to see Lampard’s side achieve the same result.
