One-time champion Chelsea have a toughlooking fixture in the Champions League this week as they target qualification for the knockout stage from Group H.

Cheslea suffered their only Champions League defeat this season against Spanish top flight side Valencia on Matchday 1 and the two teams will meet again at the Mestalla on Matchday Five.

The Blues were beaten 1-0 at home by Valencia with Rodrigo getting the only goal of the game.

Group H is one of the tightest groups in the Champions League this season with the top three teams (Ajax, Chelsea and Valencia) all on seven points apiece, while the last team Lille FC of France recorded just one point from the first four games in the Champions League.

Chelsea were on a winning run of six successive league games before the Premier League match at the home of champions Manchester City on Saturday.

That winning run came to an end via the 2-1 loss to Premier League champions Manchester City despite the fact that they scored the opening goal of the league game.

Chelsea XI vs Valencia (4-3-3): Kepa Arrizabalaga; Cesar Azpilicueta, Fikayo Tomori, Kurt Zouma, Emerson Palmieri; Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Mason Mount; Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Willian Borges.
