Speaking ahead of the game, Lampard noted that it’s the most significant game of his Chelsea career and hopes to end it with a victory.

“I know there’s expectations we should get through a group but it was a tough group. And the slightly young feel to our team. The fact we lost our first game, there’s a few difficulties we’ve had.

“You don’t want to lose games or predict losing games but the way we are… this was never going to be a plain sailing, or ‘Invincible’.
