Chelsea will be against Lille on Wednesday night at the Stade Pierre Mauroy in the Champions League Group H tie.

This game is a must win for Chelsea having lost to Valencia in our opening Champions League game.

Speaking ahead of the visit to Lille, Lampard has revealed that Chelsea were unlucky to lose to Valencia, and hopes that his side can take momentum from recent victories against Grimsby Town and Brighton.

Lampard said: “We have to be honest. Valencia wasn’t the worst game for us, we played okay and should’ve got a result, but it was a harsh lesson in switching off for a second and losing a match at this level.

“That idea ramps up even more when you play away from home at stadiums like this against top European teams. Lille have a lot of threats to us, particularly in attacking areas. They have a lot of speed and a lot of quality.

“It’s not the be all and end all, there are four more games after this, we have to see the big picture, but as we sit here now it’s certainly a game we have to be very ready for to try and pick up something.

“We can hopefully bring the confidence from the last two results back home tomorrow night. We have to trust that if we play at our best, we will get the result we want.”
