Werner will lead attacking role of the blues against Rennes after the 23-year-old German international scored brace in the first leg at bridge s Chelsea beat Stade Rennais 3-0 in the first leg, going into this fixture the blues are fully prepared, pairing of Abraham and Werner in front will strengthen Chelsea attacking role.
Chelsea are unbeaten in their previous 5 games as they welcome Stade Rennes in this UEFA Champions League (UCL) Group E fixture, having lost just one of their eight UCL fixtures vs French opposition at Stamford Bridge (W5, D2, L1). Solid at the back, the ‘Blues’ now have the opportunity to register a fifth consecutive competitive clean sheet for the first time in over ten years!
The hosts’ goalless draw in their opening home UCL group stage game made it just one win across their previous eight UCL home outings (W1, D5, L2), but the fact they have never failed to score in three straight home UCL fixtures should bring them confidence. However, Chelsea are winless in the last six home UCL games in which they conceded first (D2, L4).
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said that Kai and Thiago both travel and they are fit for selection. Christian stays back and doesn’t travel, but the good news is that he has had aggression in the last week.
“The reason he has stayed back is to get some physical work in so hopefully that will have him ready for selection come the weekend and onwards.”
“I am fully focused on the challenge of Rennes because I think when you are in the Champions League playing against a team at the level of Rennes, who I was very impressed with when we played them at Stamford Bridge with 10 men, then you slip up.
“Everyone keeps saying if you get the result then you are through the group and it could be done. But if we get the wrong result then we make it a difficult couple of games ahead because we go to Seville next. I won’t think too far ahead to Sunday of Tottenham as I want to consider Rennes at face value.”
