Chelsea manager Frank Lampard and his players have little room for error when they take on French club Lille in the Champions League.

Lampard and his players take a trip to France to take on Lille in their second group game this season and there’s little or no room for error after they lost their opening game.

Chelsea were beaten 1-0 by Spanish La Liga side Valencia in their Champions League opener with Rodrigo getting the all-important goal in the 74th minute of the encounter.

The Blues are already playing catch-up in their group as they try to qualify for the knockout stage.

Chelsea is in third position and will face fourth-placed Lille on Wednesday night for their second game in Group H.

Ahead of the Lille game, Chelsea have been handed a major injury boost following the news that star midfielder N’Golo Kante is back in full training after missing the weekend’s league win at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Frenchman will be assessed on how he has recovered from training to determine whether he will start the game as confirmed by Lampard.

Chelsea XI vs Lille: Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Fikayo Tomori, Andreas Christensen, Marcos Alonso; Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley; Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham and Willian.
