Chelsea duo miss Monday training ahead of crucial Champions League tie against Lille

Chelsea manager will have an almost entire squad fully fit for the Champions League group decider against Lille on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge. 

The former Blues midfielder's only worry is Fikayo Tomori and Olivier Giroud, who missed Monday's training. 

The Blues have however been boosted by the return of Antonio Rudiger, who joined the rest of the team in Monday's training session. 

The German has been missing from the club since September with a pelvic injury but is on the road to full recovery. 

His return will be a welcoming boost for Lampard, who will be a man short at the back with Tomori unavailable. 

Ross Barkley is also expected to feature having shaken an injury that sidelined him for weeks now.

Chelsea are third in Group H of their Champions League group on eight points, same as second-placed Valencia who play away to Ajax. 

The Blues need a victory to secure a place in the last-16, although a draw will also suffice if Valencia lose to Ajax in Amsterdam.

In the event that Chelsea see off Lille and there is a draw in the other group game, Lampard’s side will finish as group winners.
