Chelsea will be aiming to build on their midweek triumph over FC Krasnodar in the Champions League when they travel to Turf Moor to face Burnley on Saturday afternoon.
After three consecutive draws against Southampton, Sevilla and Manchester United, respectively, Chelsea got back to winning ways on Wednesday evening with an emphatic 4-0 victory in Russia.
After Jorginho missed an early penalty, Chelsea got their noses in front shortly before half time thanks to a long-range effort from Callum Hudson-Odoi. Goals in the second half from Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, who was making his first competitive start for the club, and Christian Pulisic wrapped up the win once and for all, ensuring the Blues posted their first Champions League win of the campaign.

Though the victory over Krasnodar will have given everyone connected with the Blues a lift, they know they will need to record a three-point haul against Burnley to shake off some recent criticism.
The Blues have won just two of their first six Premier League matches, with the recent draw with Southampton being seen as a contest where the Blues dropped two points.
However, to ensure they will be in the best possible shape for the long trip to Lancashire, the Blues’ players were pictured putting the hard yards in on the training ground on Friday, with Frank Lampard determined to see his side secure a return to winning ways in the league.
