Our live stream ahead of Wednesday evenings Champions League match, Sevilla v Chelsea is now up, kicking off at 20.00pm BST.
Chelsea were made to work hard by Rennes last time out in Europe, but a late goal from substitute Olivier Giroud saw them pick up a 2-1 win and with it a place in the last 16.
The Blues have now won three in a row in the competition since drawing 0-0 with Sevilla on the opening matchday – not since 2012 have they won four straight Champions League games.
Having drawn with Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League at the weekend, Chelsea are now unbeaten in 14 in all competitions.
Sevilla have also followed up their matchday one draw at Stamford Bridge with three straight wins, beating Rennes 1-0 and Krasnodar 3-2 and 2-1 home and away respectively.
Both sides have already qualified for the last 16 with two games to go, meaning that all focus is now on securing a favourable tie in the first knockout stage.
‘We are fully fit and ready to go,’ said Lampard, at his pre-match press conference.
‘Yes, we will look at making changes to the side and I’ll have to do that for different reasons. Some players have been playing a lot and it’s been a hectic schedule and will be a busy period over the next few weeks.
‘On the other side of that, the players who haven’t been playing as much recently have been training really well. We have players who are knocking on the door to play. I don’t expect a drop in level but there will be the chance for them to feature. We’ve already qualified from the group but we won’t be taking this game lightly.’
One player that will hope to feature is Billy Gilmour, who Lampard has confirmed is fully fit now after recovering from a long injury layoff.
The young Scot is included in the Chelsea squad travelling to Spain today and our head coach spoke in glowing terms of Gilmour, the work he’s put in to get back to full fitness and his future plans for the midfielder.
‘Billy is fit now,’ added Frank. ‘He could probably do with some more match minutes, which are hard to get behind the scenes in Covid times due to the way the bubbles are set up here at Cobham.
‘He’s in the squad tomorrow and it would be nice if he can get some minutes, in particular over these next two Champions League games.
‘He has a great attitude and will compete with the rest of the midfielders. I see him coming back at the level just before he got injured, he made a great impact and there will be so much more to come from him at this club, just because of the sheer talent he has.
‘Billy has a great attitude, he trains really well and he’s looking spot-on, so he comes into the squad to compete with the other players in that midfield area.’

Under 2.5 Goals – 10/11 with FanTeam
Sevilla and Chelsea have already qualified for the last 16 thanks to stoppage-time winners for both sides as they defeated Krasnodar and Rennes respectively. The two sides will now be playing for top spot in the group with nothing to separate them last time out.
Sevilla perhaps had the better of the chances but were unable to breach a much improved Chelsea defence in a 0-0 draw. A similar outcome is likely once again as these two evenly matched teams come face to face.
