Hudson-Odoi keeps his place, Rudiger to return – Chelsea predicted lineup for the visit of Burnley

Chelsea are back in premier league action tomorrow, with the visit of Burnley to Stamford Bridge. The game kicks off at 3pm (GMT) The Blues will be hoping to banish a poor home record, as they embark on cementing a top-four place this season.

Predicted lineup

Formation: 4-3-3

Goalkeeper and Defenders

Kepa will return to action after being rested In the Blues FA Cup victory against Nottingham Forest last weekend. Marcos Alonso has been ruled out, so I suspect Cesar Azpilicueta will fill the left-back role. Antonio Rudiger, and Fikayo Tomori will partner each other in the centre of defence, with Reece James starting at right-back.

Midfielders

I think Frank Lampard will want to be as attacking as possible. A double pivot of Jorginho to create, and Mateo Kovacic is likely. Mason Mount will then play in the number ten role just ahead of the pair.

Front three

Willian is likely to continue on the right-wing, with Callum Hudson-Odoi on the left. The 19-year-old was excellent against Forest, and some continuity will do him the world of good. Christian Pulisic is also ruled out for a few weeks. Tammy Abraham will resume his role as the main man up front.
