Chelsea have already qualified for the next round of the Champions League competition and are gearing up to play their last game of the Group Stage against Krasnodar. The London club have been in superb form this season and won their last two games with the scoreline of 1-4 against Sevilla in the Champions League and a 3-1 comeback win against Leeds United in the Premier League.

While just a few of the Blues’ players are sidelined for the game, Lampard will be hoping to tweak things but not risk any of his star players as he hopes to keep them fit and raring to go in the next few weeks.
