This Sunday, Chelsea will play their last game of the month of October when they face Burnley, at Turf Moor, in a Premier League fixture.

Since opening the season with a Premier League fixture, against Huddersfield Town, Maurizio Sarri’s side have remained unbeaten, in all competitions.

On Thursday evening, in the latest Europa League fixture, against Bate Borisov, Sarri made numerous changes to the starting eleven that had grabbed a last-gasp equaliser against Manchester United at the weekend.

The changes made no difference with Chelsea romping to a 3-1 win, a victory that almost certainly guarantees their participation in the next stages of the competition.

One of the changes made on Thursday night saw Ruben Loftus-Cheek given a start, the England international midfielder responded in the perfect manner, becoming the first player in a Chelsea shirt, since Didier Drogba, to score a hat-trick in a European fixture for the club.

With the fixtures set to come thick and fast, in the coming weeks, Sarri will be pondering over who forms his starting eleven this Sunday, against a Burnley side who have struggled this season compared to last season.

But, who will Sarri opt for?

Can you, in our regular feature, second guess who Sarri will start with this Sunday?

Up the Chels!
