Today Chelsea travel to Turf Moor as we look to re-establish a four point lead over Man United and Arsenal who don't play until tomorrow. Its a chance to get our noses in front once more and put the pressure back on them two.

Chelsea are looking to complete the double over Burnley after our win at the Bridge earlier in the season. We come into the game playing well and scoring goals which can only mean alarm bells will be ringing at the Moor. Added to that today we have the chance to bring back the likes of Drogba and Kalou to the squad as Ancelotti's options are bolstered come 17:30 this afternoon.

I for one today will be calling for Carlo to stick with the same team that played the other night against Birmingham as our football was fantastic.  I would love to see our flowing football on display once more as we look to maintain our grip on the title. With Deco in the Anchor position, Ballack and Lampard getting forward from either side and Joe Cole and Malouda supporting Anelka up front we play much better, more open and flowing football. I think that the only change that Ancelotti may make today will be Alex for Carvalho.

Granted it could be a completley different game as Burnley have a new manager in place after Owen Coyle joined Bolton and Brian Laws has stepped in, and without doubt they will be well up for the game today. Burnley will look to get in our faces and make it difficult for us to play.

Today I think Burnley will look to flood the midfield and make it difficult for us to break them down, but you have to say that it all depends on what team and formation Ancelotti plays today. He could recall Didier Drogba and give him a run out today to get back into the swing of the Premier League. He could employ Didier up front and Anelka wide but it means we lose either Cole or Malouda.

I'm not sure what all of you think but in my opinion Flo Malouda HAS to play week in week out as he provides balance to the side and we look so much better when he is playing. His link up play with Ash Cole is fantastic too and they have a great understanding which causes any side a problem as they both look to get forward. Malouda has maybe taken some time to adjust to Ancelotti's way, but has shown in recent weeks that he needs to be playing..

Of course with the supply Malouda can provide from all areas of the pitch has also benefitted the likes of Anelka and more importantly Frank Lampard. Lamps has his scoring boots back on and I expect to see more of the same today.

Don't get me wrong, this IS no easy game and bearing in mind the situation with the title race at the moment another 1-0 win will do me. But being Chelsea we always want more than that!

Let's hope we continue to play well and by 2000 tonight we will sit four points clear so we can sit back and watch the other two kick lumps out of each other tomorrow!
