Christian Pulisic comes into the starting lineup in place of Callum Hudson-Odoi as Chelsea prepare to take on Burnley at Turf Moor.

Frank Lampard has made one change to the side that started in the UEFA Champions League against Ajax earlier this week as Chelsea get set to lock horns with Burnley at Turf Moor.

Kepa Arrizabalaga retains his place in goal, as expected. The defensive line in front of the Spaniard remains unchanged as well, with Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso continuing as the full-backs. Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori combine to form the central defensive partnership once more.

Up ahead in midfield, there is no looking past Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho in the double pivot, with N’Golo Kante and Ross Barkley still unavailable. The only change in the Chelsea starting lineup comes on the left side of the attack.

Callum Hudson-Odoi has dropped down to the bench after starting two games within a span of five days. Hudson-Odoi has been replaced by Christian Pulisic, who has impressed in recent cameos. Willian, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham remain a part of the attacking unit, accompanying Pulisic.

Chelsea Starting XI: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Tomori, Alonso; Kovacic, Jorginho; Willian, Mount, Pulisic; Abraham
