Chelsea will look to strengthen their grip at the top of the Premier League table when they take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday afternoon. 

Ahead of the game, Antonio Conte has been speaking to the media at his pre-match press conference this afternoon and he’s given reporters a team news and injury update.

The Blues boss eased fears over the fitness of Eden Hazard after the attacker was substituted during the closing stages of Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Arsenal last weekend.

It sparked concerns that the Belgian international may have tweaked a minor knock that he was carrying heading in to the game, however, Conte has confirmed that he simply chose to withdraw Hazard in order to give the crowd a chance to applaud his excellent performance.

The Chelsea supremo also gave the latest on the condition of David Luiz after the centre-back revealed earlier this month that he’s still feeling some discomfort from an on-going knee problem.

Conte confirmed that the Brazilian international still suffers pain when he plays but is still able to perform to a high standard and the injury isn’t going to prevent him playing over the coming weeks.

It means that Chelsea have a fully-fit squad to choose from heading in to the Burnley game as they look to at least maintain their nine-point advantage over second-placed Tottenham and move one step closer to reclaiming the title.
