UCL: Chelsea must not lose to Valencia – Lampard

0

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard says their Champions League game in Valencia is a “must not lose” game rather than a “must win”.

Lampard’s side are second in Group H and will qualify if they win.

Chelsea lost 1-0 at home to Valencia in their opening game but Lampard says the defeat has “put us in this position and brought a sort of knockout football”.

“We were the better team but the lesson was, if you sleep for one moment then you get punished,” said Lampard.

“It’s a big test but we do not mind that.”

The Blues will be without the injured Callum Hudson-Odoi, while Ross Barkley and Antonio Rudiger have not travelled despite returning to training.
