Victor Moses misses out through suspension after receiving a red card against Arsenal in the Premier League final last season. He will return to face Tottenham Hotspur.
Costa and Hazard are not available which means Pedro and Willian are likely to start. Michy Batshuayi started ahead of Alvaro Morata in the Community Shield and Conte is faced with a big decision in his choice to lead the attack.
£40million midfield signing Bakayoko is still also unavailable.
Dean Marney is Burnley’s only missing player, who remains out after a long term knee injury. However, Sean Dyche’s biggest problem is the loss of striker Andre Gray after Watford agreed a club record fee to sign the Lancashire club’s star player.
