Chelsea may not be heading into the game in the best of form. But, Lille have dipped off massively this term after beating PSG to the Ligue 1 crown in 2020/21.
The French outfit are currently 10th in Ligue 1 and have been struggling to keep clean sheets this term.

Ahead of the game, Chelsea would release their starting line-up an hour before kick-off.
The line-up itself was pretty standard, but did see one big change in the form of Romelu Lukaku being benched.
The Belgian has been in pretty woeful form of late and his benching seems to have pleased a number of Chelsea fans, with just some of their reaction to Lukaku’s benching shown below:
