“Mason Mount is back in training, looking fresh and energetic, tho lost some weight but we need to assess this week’s training sessions.”
Tuchel’s side are expected to stick with their familiar 3-4-2-1 formation with Jorginho and N’Golo Kante in the midfield without Kovacic.
Mount and Pulisic could lineup to provide support for Kai up front, but Pulisic may be on bench for Werner if he is fit to start.
Blues are unbeaten in their eight matches in a roll since their UEFA Champions League loss to Juventus in September.
Chelsea have remained Unbeaten in the Premier League since Manchester City smashed them four days before their European defeat.
Regardless of the result on Saturday against Burnley, Chelsea will certainly keep their place at the top of the table as they currently sit three points above Manchester City, who are in the second place.
The Blues are hoping to have Their striker Romelu Lukaku back in the squad soon, hopefully for their midweek clash against Juventus in UCL or next weekend epl game against Manchester United.
“It’s pure speculation and it will not help, All I can say is, right now, we try hard. If Lukaku isn’t training Sunday, then hopefully Monday. There are a lot of ifs and I don’t want to mount pressure on him.
“Lukaku is putting pressure on himself. We will take things serious as always, have talks with doctors, physios, and the player. If there is something to be decided then good. It will be decided on Monday”, Tuchel said.
