Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Lille

Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Chelsea ahead of Tuesday's Champions League encounter with Lille.

Chelsea play host to Lille on Tuesday night needing to record a victory in order to book their place in the Champions League last 16.

While securing a 2-2 draw away at Valencia on matchday five was a respectable result, it has left the Blues sitting in third position in Group H.

However, boss Frank Lampard will acknowledge that Chelsea must deliver an improved performance after losing 3-1 at Everton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up their latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest at Stamford Bridge.

Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: December 10 (vs. Lille)

Having taken part in training for a couple of weeks after surgery last month, Rudiger is said to be on the brink of making a return to the squad. However, given the significance of this game, it would come as a surprise if the German is provided with his return on Tuesday evening.
