Chelsea v Burnley live stream, BT Sport, Sunday 31 January, 12pm GMT
Thomas Tuchel will be looking for his first victory as Chelsea boss when Burnley visit Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Appointed on Tuesday following Frank Lampard’s sacking, Tuchel took charge of his first training session on the same day and then led Chelsea from the dugout during Wednesday’s goalless draw with Wolves. In truth it was too early to draw any meaningful conclusions about Tuchel’s plans for this team, and the fact Chelsea dominated possession probably had more to do with Wolves’ conservative approach than any of the German’s instructions. Burnley will sit similarly deep here, and the Blues will need to be patient in their attempts to break them down.
Sean Dyche’s side edged a thrilling encounter last time out, as they came from behind to beat Aston Villa 3-2 at Turf Moor. Dyche continues to do a magnificent job in charge of the Clarets, who now sit nine points clear of the bottom three with a game in hand on most of the teams around them.
Chelsea have no injury concerns going into this game, with N’Golo Kante available again. The France international is likely to begin this match on the bench, though, with Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic the favourites to start in midfield.
Tuchel could restore Mason Mount to the engine room if he feels a double-pivot is unnecessary, and Kai Havertz is likely to start again as he attempts to belatedly kick-start his Chelsea career. Timo Werner, another player who could benefit from Tuchel’s appointment, might have to settle for a place on the bench again.
Burnley will be unable to call upon the services of Charlie Taylor, who is nursing a thigh injury. Ashley Barnes and Josh Brownhill are carrying knocks and will need to be assessed, with the former likely to make it than the latter. Nick Pope will probably be in for another busy afternoon between the sticks for Burnley.
Kick-off is at 12pm GMT and the game is being shown on BT Sport 1 in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Chelsea v Burnley live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
