[Teams] Chelsea vs Burnley: Confirmed line-ups from Stamford Bridge

Chelsea and Slavia Prague scarves at a fan stall ahead of the UEFA Europa League quarter-final return leg soccer match between Chelsea and Slavia Prague at Stamford Bridge in London Britain 18 April 2019. Chelsea vs Slavia Prague London United Kingdom

Jeff Hendrick's 20 yard volley stunned Stamford Bridge inside eight minutes to give the visitors the lead. N'golo Kante made it 1-1, before Gonazlo Higuain thundered in off the crossbar. Four minutes later, Simon Deli scored an own-goal to hand the home-side a two-goal advantage, with less than 10 minutes into the match.

Many would have been expecting Chelsea to push on from there, but Burnley pegged back with a close-range Ashley Barnes goal - his 11th of the season - and the Lancashire club held firm in the second half to clinch a hard-fought point in the capital. Spurs play on Tuesday, with Arsenal and United in action a day later on Wednesday. Burnley in their current mood are more than capable of making this an uncomfortable evening for the Blues, just like they did when they won 3-2 here last season and ground out a 1-1 draw two seasons prior to that.

The fleet-footed forward utilised his twinkle-toed feet to leave Matthew Lowton's ankles in a world of trouble, escaping the right-back in nearly dismissive fashion before angling the ball to his teammate.

Tempers flared in extra time with both teams coming together on two occasions and Sarri being sent off right before the final whistle for leaving his technical area as the game finished 2-2. After a nice one-two with Azpilicueta, the Argentine unleashed an emphatic strike which flew in off the underside of the crossbar.

The XIs he's picked in the league has varied game to game, and without knowing whether the coach is really putting the Europa League above the Premier League, it's hard to tell who he would pick if it really came down to it.

Although there is little chance of the Clarets going down at this point, you can be sure they will raise their game on Stamford Bridge accordingly.
