Having reacted impressively to their opening defeat, Al Hain-Cole expects Lampard's men to ensure plenty of goalmouth action against Les Dogues

Chelsea will be looking to get off the mark when they travel to the Stade Pierre-Mauroy to take on Lille in their second Champions League group game.

Frank Lampard's men started their campaign with a shock 1-0 defeat at home to Valencia, but have won their last two matches by a combined scoreline of 9-1.

Despite winning just one of their last seven fixtures in this competition, Chelsea are even money (2.00) favourites with bet365 to collect maximum points here.

Les Dogues are also on zero points after losing 3-0 away to Ajax in their opener, but can be backed at 14/5 (3.80) to bounce back with a victory, or 5/2 (3.50) to claim a draw.

Lille vs Chelsea team news

Timothy Weah remains the only injury doubt for the hosts, as he continues his recovery from a hamstring tear.

N'Golo Kante should be in contention after missing Saturday's 2-0 win over Brighton due to injury, while Kurt Zouma will face a late fitness test. Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Antonio Rudiger and Emerson are all ruled out.

Lille vs Chelsea preview

One of the most disappointing aspects of the Blues' defeat against Valencia was their failure to find the net for only the second time in 10 fixtures this campaign.

Having scored 23 goals in their other eight matches, they will back themselves to prove that this was a mere blip when they take on an opposition defence that has kept just two clean sheets in nine games this season.

However, with only one clean sheet to their name in 10 fixtures themselves, the guests may struggle at the other end of the pitch considering Christophe Galtier's team has hit the net 25 times in their last eight games on home turf.

Lille vs Chelsea predictions

All in all, odds of 10/11 (1.91) offer solid value on over 2.5 goals being scored for Chelsea's eighth match in 11, as well as a fourth in five home games for Lille.

All odds correct at time of publish. Please gamble responsibly.
