Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has named a very attacking squad to face Burnley away from home, as he named Mason Mount and Kai Havertz to start this game.

The boss has made six changes from the squad that defeated Krasnodar 4-0 in the Champions League as he gave rests to the likes of Timo Werner, Cesar Azpilicueta and Jorginho.

Before the game, some fans had cried out that Lampard should go for a 4-3-3 rather than a 4-2-3-1 system, and Lampard has now gone for a 4-3-3 system, with Kai Havertz and Mason Mount starting together in midfield, for the first time this season.

Burnley are expected to play deep and frustrate Chelsea, thus this highly attacking side.

See the team below

Chelsea Mendy; James, Thiago Silva (c), Zouma, Chilwell, Mount, Kante, Havertz, Ziyech, Abraham, Pulisic.

Subs Caballero, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Jorginho, Hudson-Odoi, Giroud, Werner.

Burnley Pope; Lowton, Long, Tarkowski, Taylor, Stephens, Westwood (c), Brownhill, McNeil, Barnes, Wood.
