Lille v Chelsea

Chelsea travel to Lille aiming to grab their first win of the Champions League this season after their Valencia disappointment.

The Blues were defeated late on against the La Liga side following a goal from Rodrigo, though the game was more notable for Ross Barkley’s penalty miss, which he took off Jorginho.
Now, manager Frank Lampard will aim to grab their first away win in the Champions League since November 2017, when they overturned Qarabag.
Chelsea have had a reasonable start to the season under their former player and that was consolidated on Saturday with a comfortable home win against Brighton.
A Jorginho penalty and Willian’s strike in the second half lifted them to seventh in the table, just one point away from the top four.
Now, the Champions League takes priority for them as they head to France to face a potentially tricky tie at Lille.
However, they do so with the good news that N’Golo Kante is back in training after missing the Brighton game with a hamstring injury.
Kurt Zouma and Olivier Giroud are also back in training, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Antonio Rudiger, and Emerson Palmieri are still sidelined.
Lille have started the French Ligue 1 season well and lie fourth despite losing Nicolas Pepe to Arsenal in the summer.
However, they also suffered a loss in their opening Champions League game, going down 3-0 to last season’s semi-finalists Ajax.
Victor Osimhen will be a man to watch out for with the Nigerian attacker grabbing six goals already this season.
However, the omens are good for Chelsea – they have never lost their first two matches of a European campaign.

Lille v Chelsea

Frank Lampard admitted Ross Barkley had been “naive” after the Chelsea midfielder was pictured on a night out in Liverpool.

But the Blues boss insisted Barkley had not “committed a crime” by being out on the town on Sunday night.

Photos of Barkley appearing to argue with a taxi driver, having apparently spilt chips in the back of a cab, were published in newspapers ahead of the Blues’ Champions League trip to Lille.

Lampard said he had spoken to Barkley, who has travelled with the squad to France, about the incident and revealed the 25-year-old England international admitted he had made a mistake.

Lampard said: “In terms of permission, I don’t expect people to ask permission to be in Liverpool on their day off. That’s not a problem. Especially with his family there. As an issue, he hasn’t broken the club code about being out.

“In the modern world, Liverpool is the least of my worries. It is only a few hours to get up there and back. Especially when your family is up there. It is important for people to see them.

“To address the issue, first and foremost, he hasn’t broken a club code. The lads were given a day off on Sunday.

“He hasn’t committed a crime – other than eating chips in the back of a cab which is probably a bit out of order for the cabbie!

“But on a serious note, what he has done from my point of view is be naive to be out on that evening in the build-up to a Champions League game.

“He has admitted that as well. I am very aware of that. On a professional level, those are little things that shouldn’t happen.

“From my point of view, as well, I like Ross. I have had absolutely no problem with him since he has been here.

“He works hard and wants to do well for this club. This morning he admitted to making a mistake. I will take that one at face value and we move on.”

The chips are down in France for Chelsea, who need to take something from the crucial Group H clash following their defeat by Valencia.

Lampard will check on the fitness of midfielder N’Golo Kante, who has been out with an ankle injury.

“He has trained this morning. He got through training okay. He is one we still have to assess in the morning. So we are positive that he will be fit to play,” added Lampard.

“Everyone is working towards getting him regularly fit so he can play some continuous games. I am hoping that is coming really soon because obviously we need him.”

Chelsea will come up against a familiar face when they attempt to get their Champions League campaign back on track at Lille.

Striker Loic Remy may have something to prove to his former club, having spent three years at Stamford Bridge without managing to hold down a regular place.

Now 32, Remy joined Lille from Las Palmas in 2018 and scored seven goals last season before getting off the mark for this term against Strasbourg last week.

Lille boss Christophe Galtier confirmed the former France international and another ex-Premier League player, former Swansea loanee Renato Sanches, are set to be involved on Wednesday night.

“Remy was very good against Strasbourg, his experience is important in that kind of match.” he said.

“Sanches joined us recently and he was very good against Strasbourg, but he still needs to find his feet. Both players could be useful (on Wednesday).”

    Lille 1-2 Chelsea

    Frank Lampard secured his first Champions League win as a manager after Chelsea defeated French Ligue 1 side Lille 2-1 in Group H at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy.

    Chelsea boasted three changes from the weekend’s 2-0 Premier League win against Brighton as N’Golo Kante returned to replace Ross Barkley in midfield, while Kurt Zouma came in for Andreas Christensen at centre-back and 19-year-old Reece James made his Champions League debut.

    Hosts Lille had former Chelsea striker Loic Remy and ex-Swansea loan midfielder Renato Sanches on the bench from the start.

    Chelsea enjoyed the better of a scrappy opening to the game with Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount having half-chances to put their side in front.

    But, on 20 minutes, Kepa Arrizabalaga had to race out of his area to head the ball clear when Victor Osimhen got the better of Zouma and looked set to have a free run at goal.

    That intervention from the Blues’ custodian was even more significant when his side went up-field and took the lead a minute later.

    Fikayo Tomori lifted the ball into the area and picked out Abraham with the birthday boy finishing past Mike Maignan into the far corner of the net.

    Kepa rescued the Blues again moments later as he tipped Luiz Araujo’s left-foot effort wide of the far corner. But he couldn’t do much about Lille’s equaliser on 33 minutes when Osimhen was given too much space as he powered in a header from a Jonathan Bamba corner.

    Chelsea recovered from that setback and were unfortunate not be back in front before the break when Marcos Alonso flashed a header just over the crossbar, before Jorginho rattled the post in stoppage time.

    Kepa prevented Lille from taking the lead on 52 minutes when he produced a super finger-tip save to prevent Benjamin Andre’s header from creeping inside his near post.

    Both sides continued to press for a second goal and it was Mount who went close on 73 minutes when he was set up by Willian but his scuffed effort was tipped away by Maignan.

    Chelsea did get their second of the night to re-take the lead on 77 minutes when Willian celebrated his 300th appearance for the Blues when Callum Hudson-Odoi picked him out on the right side of the box and he fired past Maignan.

    The night ended on a sour note for Willian as he had to limp off with a possible hamstring injury five minutes from time.

    The win moves Chelsea up to second in the group behind leaders Ajax, who won 3-0 away at Valencia.
