Conte: Why Burnley's Dyche has it easier than me at Chelsea

Thibaut Courtois- 6

The visitors to Turf Moor are expected to have a rotated starting line-up as they look ahead to Sunday's FA Cup semi-final with Southampton.

Chelsea travel to Burnley for a rare Thursday night match hoping to tighten their grip on fifth place.

Reflecting on the Chelsea manager's pre-match comments on BBC 5Live, Burnley chairman Mike Garlick mused: 'It's interesting knowing what we have had to work with recently.

Antonio Conte believes that Burnley's Sean Dyche does not face the same scrutiny as managers of teams higher up in the Premier League.

Ashley Barnes equalised for Burnley in the 64th minute but the lead was to last only for five minutes as Moses scored to restore the Blues lead. The Blues are still able to find their way into the top four, as they sit only seven points behind Tottenham.

Conversely, Chelsea's Conte has faced continual criticism throughout a title-defending campaign, prompting many to speculate he will leave Stamford Bridge at it's conclusion. Forwards; Willian, Pedro, Giroud.

Antonio Rudiger- 7
Could do nothing about Ashley Barnes deflected goal but will feel very unlucky to have not kept a clean sheet

Jon Walters returned to the Burnley squad after missing much of the season due to injury, while Ben Mee is out of the side with some fresh problems. They did a great job on and off the pitch; they were very well prepared for the season.

Within touching distance of sixth-placed Arsenal, Burnley faced Chelsea in a must-win game for their season.

Olivier Giroud should start after scoring twice from the bench at Southampton, but Marcos Alonso is banned for three games after being found guilty of stamping on Shane Long in that game.

Being on the brink of earning Europa League qualification is huge for a club like Burnley. They're 3-0 up at Chelsea'. On that occasion, Tarkowski was still 30 yards behind Morata when he shot at goal, but the Chelsea forward's lack of form showed as he fired horribly wide.

Both Tarkowski and Pope have done well this season and earned their England chances, but they can not afford more nights like this if they are to make Southgate's squad.
