‘Sensational team’ – Chelsea fans react to what Frank Lampard has done ahead of Krasnodar clash

Chelsea will be going in search of their first victory since the recent international break when they lock horns with FC Krasnodar at the Krasnodar Stadium this evening.

After three successive draws against Southampton, Sevilla and Manchester United respectively, the Blues are in desperate need of getting back to winning ways as soon as possible.

Tonight’s clash with Krasnodar, which is their second Champions League outing of the season, seems like a golden opportunity, with the Russian outfit overwhelming underdogs.

And to ensure the Blues do head back to England with a positive result in the bag, Frank Lampard – the Chelsea head coach – has named a strong-looking line-up, including a first competitive start for summer signing Hakim Ziyech.
