Chelsea fans are hard to please when it comes to the Blues’ starting XI which is revealed an hour before kick-off.
With the likes of Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Andreas Christensen on the bench, Antonio Conte has taken a risk in leaving the trio out.
Chelsea team: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Cahill (c), Rudiger, Moses, Kante, Bakayoko, Emerson, Pedro, Morata, Giroud.

However, with an FA Cup Semi-Final clash against Southampton on Sunday and top four hopes slim to say the least, it may be seen as a sensible decision by the Italian to rotate against Burnley.
Here are some reactions from Chelsea supporters on Twitter regarding the situation:
Bakayoko what a shock
Emerson and Giroud start at least
Rudiger back in the team aswell
Let’s get that win in lads!!!
