Frank Lampard, having failed to start our three previous games, returns to the starting line-up for tonight’s Champions League clash against FC Nordsjaelland in Copenhagen, and skippers the side, replacing John Mikel Obi who drops down to the bench.
With John Terry also having to be content with a place on the substitutes’ bench, Gary Cahill comes in to partner David Luiz in central defence, while the only other change from the team which won 2-1 at Arsenal on Saturday sees Victor Moses replace Eden Hazard.
Chelsea are expected to line up in the following 4-2-3-1 formation:
4. David Luiz
8. Lampard (c)
Substitutes: Turnbull, Azpilicueta, Terry, Romeu, Mikel Obi, Bertrand, Hazard.
FC Nordsjaelland are expected to line up in the following 4-2-3-1 formation:
Hansen; Parkhurst, Okore, Runje, Mtiliga; Adu, Stockholm; Lorentzen, Nordstrand, John; Beckmann.
Substitutes: Villadsen, Christiansen, Christiensen, Gundelach, Laudrup, Ticinovic, Petry.
