This is a big game for both Chelsea and Burnley today. Burnley are one win away from pulling themselves out of the drop zone. At the other end of the table, Chelsea could open up a serious gap between themselves and their rivals. The form book has only one thing to say but confidence is a funny thing. With Burnley's first win of the season now under their belts, anything could happen this afternoon. Make sure you know how to watch a Chelsea vs Burnley live stream wherever you are.
US soccer fans can watch a Chelsea vs Burnley live stream, and many more Premier League matches, on Peacock TV for just $4.99 per month. Don't forget to use a VPN if you're a US fan stuck outside the States. Those in Canada can enjoy the game free on DAZN with this 30-day free trial.
The team news is in and Ross Barkley makes his first Premier League start for Chelsea since July 2020. N'Golo Kante and Reece James also get the nod, while Edouard Mendy starts in goal. Burnley have named an unchanged XI from last weekend’s win, with Maxwell Cornet up front.
Chelsea are already three points ahead of second-placed Liverpool but the Reds have the tricky task of taking on West Ham away. Should Firmino and friends fail to deliver the goods, Chelsea could find themselves riding high, six points clear.
The tricky test for Chelsea will be up front. With both Lukaku and Werner out injured, the Blues struggled to score midweek against Malmo. Thomas Tuchel will be looking to his fleet-footed forwards for deliverance.
Luckily for Burnley, there are three teams just one win away on 10 points and none of them have particularly easy fixtures this weekend. Leeds host Leicester, Villa are on the road at Southampton and Watford make the trip across town to Arsenal.
At the same time, Burnley can feel confident that neither Newcastle nor Norwich below them will gain much ground with both sides still looking for that elusive first win and nursing heavy negative goal differences.
The match kicks off at 3pm BST today at Stamford Bridge. Follow our guide on how to watch a Chelsea vs Burnley live stream online, on TV and on your smartphone, from wherever you are in the world.

Watch a Chelsea vs Burnley live stream from abroad using a VPN
