    Adam: Chelsea with three academy products starting (again). Are there many PL clubs with that claim?

    Samuel Odeyemi: I have no doubt that Chelsea will be in the UCL next season, the only question is how. Top four or Europa crown. But I will say both are possible for this Chelsea team if Sarri gets his tactics right.

    Sulaimon Adelekan: I don't think Chelsea will make the top four for the second consecutive season or even win the Europa League either

    Pedro celebrates scoring for Chelsea in their Europa League quarter-final victory against Slavia Prague

    Even if Chelsea don't finish in the top four, they would still qualify for the Champions League if they win this season's Europa League.

    They beat Slavia Prague 4-3 on Thursday (5-3 on aggregate) to reach the semi-finals, where they will face Eintracht Frankfurt.

    Chelsea v Burnley (20:00 BST)

    Usually finishing in the top four is the main thing. But this season it could end up being the top three that's all important.

    If Arsenal or Chelsea were to win the Europa League - AND Tottenham win the Champions League - AND neither side finish in the top four, then whoever finishes fourth in the Premier League would only get into the Europa League.

  6. 'Chelsea have two throws of the dice'

    Roman Abramovich

    Chelsea are in danger of missing out on Champions League football for a second consecutive season, which hasn't happened since Roman Abramovich took over in 2003.

    But they still have two throws of the dice to avoid that - a top-four finish or winning the Europa League.

    If they beat Burnley at Stamford Bridge, then they will remain firmly in the race for the top four, although they will have played a game more than their rivals.

    The Clarets are a team in fine fettle, having won their last three games. They also won on their last visit to Stamford Bridge at the start of last season but that is their only Premier League away win against one of the big six in 29 attempts.

  7. Team news

    Chelsea v Burnley (20:00 BST)

    Eighteen-year-old Callum Hudson-Odoi makes his fourth Premier League start for Chelsea - one of four changes from the side that edged past Slavia Prague in the Europa League on Thursday.

    Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek also returns along with forward Gonzalo Higuaín and midfielder Jorginho.

    Out go Ross Barkley, Mateo Kovacic, Pedro and Olivier Giroud - all four are on the bench.

    Chelsea XI: Arrizabalaga, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Emerson Palmieri, Kante, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Hudson-Odoi, Higuain, Hazard.

    Subs: Barkley, Pedro, Caballero, Kovacic, Giroud, Zappacosta, Cahill.

    .

    Burnley have won their last three games so it is no surprise that Sean Dyche names an unchanged side.

    That means a 17th Premier League start for 19-year-old Dwight McNeil - goalkeeper Tom Heaton is captain.

    Burnley XI: Heaton, Lowton, Tarkowski, Mee, Taylor, Hendrick, Westwood, Cork, McNeil, Barnes, Wood.

    Subs: Gudmundsson, Brady, Gibson, Hart, Ward, Vydra, Long.

    Chelsea v Burnley (20:00 BST)

    Burnley are basically safe already, eight points above the relegation zone. A win would make it mathematically secure.

    Chelsea v Burnley (20:00 BST)

    Chelsea's rivals for a top four spot - Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United - ALL lost this weekend.

    So a win today for the Blues against Burnley puts them third, or a draw sees them fourth - albeit having played an extra game. A big victory could boost their goal difference, which could prove decisive in the end.
