Chelsea’s boss Frank Lampard has delivered fitness update of his squad ahead of their final Champions League group game against Krasnodar.

Wingers Hakim Ziyech and Callum Hudson-Odoi are ruled out due hamstring injuries. Ziyech picked up his injury in the 3-1 win over Leeds while Hudson-Odoi was reported to have been injured in training.

Chelsea won the first leg 4-0 in Russia and the result tomorrow won’t matter because Chelsea have already topped the group after beating Sevilla 4-0 in their last game.
