The big three points offered at Turf Moor today against Burnley didn’t win. Chelsea are in good form, but the results here will go a long way to shape the story of the season.
Every game feels like winning, but that’s what happens if you want to win something meaningful.
As expected and hopefully, Lampard chose to use a 4-3-3, while Tammy Abraham was kicked off when Werner rested.
UPDATE: Pulisic was injured in the pre-match matches. Timo Werner comes across from the left flank. Third goalkeeper Karlo Žiger, perhaps the only other member of the traveling team, took Werner̵7;s place on the bench.
