Premier League high-flyers Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways when they travel to Spain to take on Sevilla in the Champions League this Wednesday.

The Blues are coming into this tie on the back of a frustrating goalless draw against Tottenham on the weekend, where Jose Mourinho’s side seemingly set out to frustrate Lampard’s men from start to finish. Chelsea actually had the ball in the back of the net in the first-half, before Timo Werner was judged to have been offside in the lead up to the goal.

Chelsea and Sevilla have both secured qualification into the knockout stages of the Champions League, having picked up ten points each from their four group stage matches so far.

The only time that either team has dropped points in Europe was against each other, when the pair of them played out a drab stalemate at Stamford Bridge. A win for either team would put them in the driver’s seat in terms of the group, which means that there’s enough incentive for both to try and push for the win.
