And pundit Nevin reckons the Blues boss will rest his stars to maintain their impressive title charge.
“Some of the current Chelsea lads might even get a little break this week if the boss is feeling particularly generous,” Nevin wrote in his column on Chelsea’s official website.
“Who knows, maybe even a little jaunt to sunnier climes and suddenly the sympathy has totally evaporated again.

“This morning I am off over to Munich to cover the Bayern v Arsenal game and know it will have at least some effect on Wenger’s men.

“There are 13 league games left and a few of them will be a grind just like Sunday at Burnley’s tight Turf Moor, but if we show the same sort of attitude every week I suspect we will be okay.”
