2-0. Expect a strong performance from the defence, expect us to score but don’t think we’ll dominate too much

I’m going for a 3-1 Chelsea win tonight. I think we’ll have another assured performance continuing our good form but our clean sheet run will come to an end. I’m predicting Ziyech, Mount and Abraham to get on the scoresheet.

2-0. Expecting Mendy to continue his clean sheets with his long arms and Timo to continue to dazzle with his form. Havertz to score as well, and Ziyech to assist. What can I say? I’m a bit of a Mystic Mike.

Lampard will make changes to his starting XI that flourished on the weekend at Burnley. But, this game remains a must win and Rennes will come to the Bridge with a game plan which will make it difficult for the home side, making this a difficult fixture. However, expect Chelsea to come away with the three points with a 3-0 win and move away from the rest of the group, regardless of how many changes are made.
With the momentum gained after the 4-0 win at Krasnodar and the 3-0 win at Burnley, Chelsea are on the course for another win. Rennes are without key midfielder duo Steven N’zonzi and Eduardo Camavinga, which could prove pivotal. Score prediction I’ve gone for 3-1 Chelsea.
