Last season's Ligue 1 champions have been far from the side that conquered France and with a two-goal gulf to overturn, their prospects might already be done in Europe for the season.

But Jocelyn Gourvennec will ensure that his side do not flinch on home soil, with several superb players among their ranks waiting to spring an upset.

Predicted Lille starting XI: Jardim; Celik, Fonte, Botman, Djalo; Bamba, Andre, Xeka, Gudmundsson; David, Yilmaz.

PositionChelsea roster
Goalkeepers Kepa, Bettinelli, Mendy
Defenders Rudiger, Alonso, Christensen, Silva, Chalobah, Chilwell, James, Azpilicueta, Sarr
Midfielders Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek, Saul, Barkley, Mount, Ziyech, Kenedy, Havertz, Vale, Hall
Forwards Lukaku, Werner, Hudson-Odoi

The continued swirl of uncertainty that clouds Stamford Bridge has left the Blues facing a haphazard path to the end of the season - but Thomas Tuchel is determined they'll meet every challenge head on.

That includes booking their spot in the quarter-finals after Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic netted in the first leg - and supporters will hope the two can combine for similar success yet again.

Predicted Chelsea starting XI: Mendy; Silva, Christensen, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Kovacic, Alonso; Ziyech, Havertz, Pulisic.
