The London outfit must continue to put points on the board if they are to ensure their place at European football's top table next term

Chelsea will attempt to keep their hopes of securing a top-four Premier League finish alive when they host Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Monday.

Maurizio Sarri's side suffered a blow in their hunt for Champions League qualification last week when they lost to Liverpool so they will be eager to bounce back to keep the pressure on Arsenal and Tottenham.

The Blues put the loss against the Reds behind them by booking their place in the Europa League semi-finals, overcoming Slavia Prague, but they will have to do the business in the league as well.

However, it will not be easy. Their visitors, Burnley, are on a three-game winning streak and another positive result could well be enough to secure their divisional integrity.

Match Preview


Maurizio Sarri Chelsea Liverpool

Chelsea come into their game against Burnley on a high having taken a step closer to Europa League glory, but the Blues know all too well that they cannot take their eye off the prize in the Premier League.

"Winning the Europa League is one target for the club, and for us, and it is what we are going to try to do," said N'Golo Kante after their victory over Slavia Prague.

"We are three games away from winning that title, but we must first go for fourth place."

With Manchester United losing - and heavily - against Everton on Sunday, it relieves some pressure on Sarri's side in the race for a European finish, but their main goal is to return to the Champions League and to do that, with just four games left, they simply cannot afford to drop any more points.

Burnley are in top form at the moment, having put together three successive victories, and should prove a difficult opponent, but Chelsea will take confidence from the fact that they made light work of them in the reverse fixture, winning 4-0 at Turf Moor in October.
