Hello and welcome to the Stade Pierre Mauroy where Frank Lampard is previewing Chelsea's Champions League clash against Lille.
The Blues did not get off to the best start in Group H as they were beaten 1-0 by Valencia and will be keen to get their first points of the campaign.
Meanwhile, Lille are in the same position after they were beaten 3-0 in their opening match of the competition against Ajax last month.
It makes Wednesday night a vital game for both teams as the loser will really be up against it when it comes to qualifying for the knockout stages.
Lampard will be hoping to have N'Golo Kante back in action after picking up another injury, and we'll discover if he will be fit to play having trained with the squad this afternoon.
We'll also find out if Lampard is ready to play Christian Pulisic again, with the American having played just once in September for the Blues.

We have to be honest, I didn’t think Valencia was the worst game for us, we should have got a result. With Lille they have a lot of threats, speed and quality. It is not the be-all and end-all, we have to see it in the big picture, but it’s a game we have to be ready for.
Kepa
In the lack of clean sheets, to get one the person I was most happy for was Kepa He is very determined and wants to improve. Clean sheets are not just his responsibility, but he has worked to improve.
In his role he can maybe become a bit more vocal and that is part of the process as well.
Tomori, will he keep his place when Rudiger is back? Abraham, have you seen him grow?
Tomori, I worked with him last year and I have a lot of trust in him. I see it as four very good centre-backs. He has given himself a really good place in the race. He must keep improving.
Tammy, he has been out on loan more, scored a lot of goals and taken his chance well. He has still got more to do but showing brilliant signs.
Young players, do you tell them about their responsibilities off the pitch as well?
That is my responsibility to do. I do it constantly, as do the staff in the academy. They live in a modern day, I don’t understand why, but people pick up their phone and video what happens. We have a very good bunch, good lads. I made mistakes as a player. I have confidence in them and they have to take on responsibilities on the pitch.

He is travelling, in terms of permission I don’t expect to be asked for that. To address the issue, he hasn’t committed a club code, the lads were given a day off. He hasn’t committed a crime, but I think he has been naive to be out before a Champions League game. He has admitted that. I like Ross, I has had no problem with him and he has admitted he made a mistake. I will take that at face value and move on.

Kante injury?

He has trained and got through it okay. One that we have to assess. We are positive. It doesn’t relate to the Europa League. The fallout of that meant he has had a broken pre-season. He has had a few niggles, some bad luck. Everyone is working to getting him fit.
