Chelsea head into their Champions League Round of 16 second leg clash with Lille in high spirits despite ongoing disputes in the board room and beyond.


The Blues' remarkable form on the field has been overshadowed by owner Roman Abramovich's well-documented predicament away from it.

Our prediction: Lille v Chelsea

For all Chelsea have fallen short in the title race, they remain an incredibly tough nut to crack.

They have had issues throughout the season in terms of scoring goals, but Kai Havertz's form is providing much-needed reliability in that department. Grey draws are being converted to green wins with increasing frequency.

Havertz has netted five goals in his last five games across all competitions and is expected to lead the line for the foreseeable future. Another strike here would kill the contest.

Our prediction: Lille 1-2 Chelsea (15/2 at bet365)
