Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has made eight changes to the team that started against BATE Borisov in the UEFA Europa League, for his side’s contest against Burnley.

Chelsea are without star attacker Eden Hazard for their Premier League game against Burnley on Sunday. The Belgian international missed the midweek game with a back injury and hasn’t recovered in time for the weekend game.

Maurizio Sarri has stuck with Pedro in attack in Hazard’s absence, while Willian and Kepa Arrizabalaga are the only other two members to be retained from the starting XI against BATE Borisov.

Chelsea’s whole backline has been altered by the manager, with the usual suspects returning to the side. Midweek hat-trick hero Ruben Loftus-Cheek drops to the bench, however, with Ross Barkley getting the nod in the midfield, along with Jorginho and N’Golo Kante, while Alvaro Morata starts in place of Olivier Giroud.
