Chelsea had last weekend off after extending their unbeaten run in the Barclays Premier League to five games with a controversial 1-0 home win over 10-man Everton.

The Blues are seven points clear at the top of the table having won the most games (18) and lost fewest (two) with 13 left to play.

They are unbeaten at the Bridge, winning 11 and drawing one of their 12 home games while scoring 26 goals and conceding just four - the fewest in the Premier League.

Burnley, by contrast, have failed to win in their last four league games, losing three. But they have scored five goals in those four games. Their only win away this term came at Stoke in November; since then the Clarets have lost four and drawn one on the road.

When the teams met at Turf Moor on the opening day of the season Chelsea won 3-1. Scott Arfield gave Burnley an early lead before Diego Costa scored on his Blues debut. Andre Schurrle and Branislav Ivanovic added goals for the visitors.

Burnley have failed to win in their last six league visits to Chelsea, losing the last four. They last won there in April 1971 in the old First Division.

On Tuesday, Chelsea were involved in the Champions League in France and drew 1-1 against Paris St-Germain.

Jose Mourinho is without John Obi Mikel but otherwise has a clean bill of health.

Burnley, meanwhile, are without Dean Marney and Kevin Long while Stephen Ward and Matty Taylor undergo tests.
