Ziyech and Werner top Chelsea Lineup against Rennes in the Champions League return leg. Welcome to Global News Nigeria as we take a look at Chelsea lineup against Stade Rennais in the Champions League Matchday 4 fixture on Tuesday.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said that Kai and Thiago both travel and they are fit for selection. Christian stays back and doesn’t travel, but the good news is that he has had aggression in the last week.
“The reason he has stayed back is to get some physical work in so hopefully that will have him ready for selection come the weekend and onwards.”
“I am fully focused on the challenge of Rennes because I think when you are in the Champions League playing against a team at the level of Rennes, who I was very impressed with when we played them at Stamford Bridge with 10 men, then you slip up.
“Everyone keeps saying if you get the result then you are through the group and it could be done. But if we get the wrong result then we make it a difficult couple of games ahead because we go to Seville next. I won’t think too far ahead to Sunday of Tottenham as I want to consider Rennes at face value.”
