Chelsea’s likely lineup for Burnley clash.Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has a big decision to make in goal as his side kick off their Premier League season away to newly-promoted Burnley.
With youngster Thibaut Courtois playing 90 minutes in a recently friendly win over Real Sociedad, it could be a signal that the Belgian international is about to displace Petr Cech as the club’s number one, and he could get the nod here as the new season gets underway.
Elsewhere, new signings are likely to be on display for Chelsea, who look incredibly strong and are many people’s favourites for the title this year.
Goalkeeper and defence:
In goal, Thibaut Courtois could make his long-awaited Chelsea debut, with a back four of Branislav Ivanovic, John Terry, Gary Cahill and new signing Filipe Luis ahead of him. Luis joins Courtois in moving to Stamford Bridge from Atletico Madrid, and will be hoping to fill Ashley Cole’s boots this season after the England veteran left on a free transfer to AS Roma.
