Three of Chelsea's summer additions get starts as the Blues travel to face Burnley at Turf Moor.

The final match of the opening round of the 2014/15 Premier League season is set to kickoff in less than an hour. Here's how Chelsea and Burnley will lineup for the match.

Jose Mourinho has ended the speculation about who starts in goal for Chelsea as he's handed Thibaut Courtois the start in net. Fellow summer signings Cesc Fàbregas and Diego Costa get starts as well, while the rest of the lineup is filled with familiar faces from last season's campaign.
