CHE Vs BUR Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Chelsea look to imbed semblance in what has been a languid home record this term.
With a mere two wins in their last five outings, for today’s hosts the recent set of events have been inexplicable. Where the side has found it extremely easy to get past their London rivals, they have faltered infront of lower placed sides, seeing Chelsea’s season hit a rut at the moment.
The previous 1-1 draw against Brighton perfectly epitomised that narrative for Chelsea, one which saw the deficit between them and third place grow to 8 points. The side have massively underachieved, especially infront of their raucous home supporters.
It’s something they’ll be looking to address when they come out to play a Burnley side which has over the course of the last couple of seasons massively perturbed them. However, with Burnley in treacherous form at the moment, losing three encounters in succession to pummel to 15th spot, Chelsea will be fancying their chances of an elusive win this Saturday.
Chelsea have faltered immensely in the last one month, failing to muster up a reasonable spree of results. Perplexingly, a majority of their defeats have come at their home stadium but we envision them having just about enough on the day in their attacking repertoire to scram ther way to a win today.

CHE Vs BUR Dream11 Goal-Keeper
A Burnley side which has failed to show any kind of semblance in their attacking travails has faltered this season due to a lack of cohesion in defence as well. Come today’s encounter, they’ll be looking to revert back to their stringent and stern defensive showing, something Nick Pope will play a heavy role in.
And with Chelsea having found it tricky off late to score against side’s who deploy a gameplan reminiscent to Burnley’s, Pope might just emerge from this one with a shut down to his name to see us bring in the goal-keeper for the contest.
CHE Vs BUR Dream11 Defenders
We begin with Chelsea’s captain Cesar Azpilicueta with the fullback having scored in his side’s bygone affair. He’s going to be accompanied by CB Antonio Rudiger, someone whose return has massively bolstered a Chelsea defence in much need of acumen.
Elsewhere, it’s just the one pick for us from Burnley for the encounter with us opting for CB Ben Mee, a player who is not only a mainstay of their backline but also capable of sending down a thumping header as well.
CHE Vs BUR Dream11 Midfielders
Across the entirety of the season, N’Golo Kante has been handed over a new role under Frank Lampard, one which has seen him flourish and discover a previously unknown attacking side to his game. While the goals have dried up for him after scoring three times in the early exchanges of the season, he continues to be deployed in areas where he’s likely to find the goal to see us make him an instant pick for us.
His partner was a dicier pick with both Jorginho and Matteo Kovacic viable options but what alluded us towards Kovacic was the season he’s enduring at the moment. He’s thrived with Lampard in change to become a mainstay of Chelsea’s entire gameplan and will be picked by us for this encounter.
Mason Mount joins the two given the corner and freekick responsibilities he has along with being someone who has mad massive inroads into this Chelsea side given his penchant for the goal. Willian completes our four man pick from the home side with the player scoring a slew of goals this season and with Pulisic out injured for the day, he’s going to be asked to persistently be present in his side’s every attacking move.
Elsewhere, it’s just the one pick for us from the visitors with us deciding to bring in Dwight McNeil from the unit.
CHE Vs BUR Dream11 Strikers
With the 13 goals this season, Chelsea’s striker Tammy Abraham was always going to be the first name to be hammered down in our side. On the ther hand, Burnley find their leading goal scorer come in as well for the encounter with Chris Wood being our pick after having the 8 goals in his kitty.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Mount captain us out for the tie while Abraham is our vice-captain.
