Chelsea vs Lille match preview
In the reverse fixture it took a series of remarkable saves from Kepa, in the Chelsea net, to earn the blues all three points. So, while Lille don’t look competitive in terms of the group places, they were competitive on the pitch.
Goals from Willian and English starlet Tammy Abraham sealed the result. Abraham has been in fine form this season and Chelsea fans will hope he can find the net again this evening.
In their last game, Chelsea could have sealed qualification with a win over Valencia. Instead, they drew 2-2, thanks to a late equaliser for the Spanish team.
Chelsea struggled for a result in their most recent fixture too, taking a beating away at Goodison Park, where interim Everton manager Duncan Ferguson inspired the toffees to an unexpected 3-1 win.
The wind has been taken out of Chelsea’s sails then, heading into this Champions League fixture. But, on paper, they should still have enough quality to win out this evening. Frank Lampard will doubtless have been working to re-focus his team since their galling loss and we will see how successful he has been this evening.
Chelsea’s response to a loss will be an interesting measure of the team’s character, especially in such a crucial game. Yes, Lille aren’t the most frightening side in prospect, but the points are vital and the French side ran Chelsea very close last time out. Blues fans will also be hoping that Ajax can do them a favour and beat Valencia in the other Group H fixture.
