Frank Lampard’s side saw off the Spaniards with ease as Olivier Giroud made merry in Seville, bagging himself four lovely goals.

Lampard may look to rotate for this week’s visit of Krasnodar, however, giving some of his young guns the chance to shine against the Russians.

Chelsea v Krasnodar team news

Chelsea: Hakim Ziyech, who limped off in the Premier League clash with Leeds at the weekend, is Lampard’s only injury concern going into the tie.

Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic are likely to get minutes while Kepa Arrizabalaga, Jorginho, Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger could return to the starting line-up following their respective stints on the bench.

Krasnodar: Krasnodar currently have two injury concerns at the moment with defenders Sergey Petrov and Dmitri Stotskiy both still on the sidelines.

Top scorer Marcus Berg will be hoping to continue his fine goalscoring form.

Our prediction: Chelsea v Krasnodar

Lampard, who will be more than aware of the importance of maintaining momentum on the cusp of the crucial festive period, will still pick a strong side.

Krasnodar have been far from whipping boys, though, and with a spot in the Europa League knockout stages firmly within their grasp, could represent a real challenge.

It might not be as comfortable a night as last week, but Chelsea, whatever the line-up, should still have what it takes to get the job done.

Our prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Krasnodar
