The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern tonight are discussing their favoured starting elevens as they kick off the defence of their title against Burnley.
Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side will begin their defence to the Premier League trophy on Saturday when they play hosts to Burnley.
The current champions of England could have had a better start to their season following their loss to Arsenal on penalties in the Community Shield final this past Sunday.
Unfortunately for Burnley, Conte will want to make an example of Sean Dyche’s side and lay down a marker for the rest of the season.
If Chelsea play as well as they have shown under Conte’s 3-4-3 formation then Burnley shouldn’t put up too much of a fight and the Blues will likely pick up three points to kick off proceedings.
There are a few players like Tiémoué Bakayoko and Eden Hazard who are likely to miss the opening game but still, Chelsea should be winning this one.
With that being said, here is the starting lineup that Antonio Conte should go with to dominate Burnley on Saturday.
