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