Chelsea are the opposition for Burnley’s return to the top flight, and Jose Mourinho’s side will be just about the toughest test the Clarets could hope for.
The Blues are many pundits’ top tip to claim the Premier League title after a stellar summer in the transfer window, securing the likes of Filipe Luis, Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa.
The latter two names are especially likely to make a big difference to the Stamford Bridge side’s attack, with Costa already firing in pre-season, and providing Chelsea with their first genuine goalscorer up front since Didier Drogba’s prime.
Fabregas will provide creativity and a goal threat himself, and his success with Arsenal indicates he will have little trouble adapting to English football once again.
For Burnley, Sam Vokes is an injury doubt, but summer signings Lucas Jutkiewicz and Matthew Taylor should start.
Sean Dyche has earned the moniker the ‘Ginger Mourinho’ in the Lancashire press, but will have the opportunity to prove himself worthy of the title when he faces the original Special One at Turf Moor.
