Cesc Fabregas has been linked with a move away from Chelsea this summer

Gray was the top scorer in the second-tier League Championship last season, helping Burnley achieve an immediate return to the Premier League.

And Loftus-Cheek thinks their lighter fixture list will benefit them in their quest for Premier League, FA Cup and EFL Cup success.

Last season's dethroned champions Chelsea FC (2-0-0, 6 points) will gun for a ideal three-of-three wins in the newly-opened 2016-2017 Premier League season as they host newly-promoted club Burnley FC (1-1-0, 3 points) at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday, Aug. 27.

It was Chelsea's third consecutive win of the season after league wins against West Ham and Watford.

The 26-year-old attacking midfielder made a decision to treat his family to a trip to Legoland on Wednesday afternoon as the South American relaxed ahead of Chelsea's next Premier League outing.

The predicted result is a 3-1 rout for Chelsea. Similarly against Watford for remonstrating with the referee, Costa again received a yellow card, whilst he may have picked up a second, after appearing to dive inside the Hornets penalty area.

Chelsea are in fourth place in the Premier League table.

Chelsea also moved in to the third round stage but Antonio Conte's side were made to work for it as Bristol Rovers pushed them all the way before eventually losing 3-2 at Stamford Bridge last night.

"The exciting thing about this season is that we have five of the best managers in five of the best clubs", he says in the video interview.

The match will be played in the week beginning September 19th.
