Tonight, Chelsea are back in Champions League action when they take on Valencia, in a Group H fixture, at the Mestalla.

Group H, probably the most competitive of the qualifying groups, is precariously balanced with Ajax, Chelsea and Valencia all tied on 7 points with two games to go.

A victory tonight would ensure Chelsea reach the knockout stages, but Valencia will prove to be determined opposition.

In fact, ahead of the game, Frank Lampard has described it as a game Chelsea must not lose as opposed to must win.

A draw, tonight, would leave the outcome of the group down to the last round of fixtures and that’s something I wouldn’t bet against.

As is the norm, we’re running our Match Day Moments feature whereby we actively encourage your participation by leaving your viewpoint on a variety of subjects including but not limited to:

1 – The build-up to this intriguing fixture.

2 – The starting eleven as selected by Frank Lampard.

3 – The action as it happens at the Mestalla.

4 – Your thoughts in the immediate period after the final whistle has sounded.

Here’s hoping cometh the sound of the final whistle it’s the travelling contingent, at the Mestalla, that are celebrating wildly.

Who'll Score First Tonight?

Valencia!

Valencia!

Chelsea!

Chelsea!

It'll Be 0-0!

It'll Be 0-0!

Up the Chels!

  • Our defence is a nightmare they missed 3 sitters easier to score also we are giving the ball away to much positives are our build up and attacking play , kepa saves pen brilliantly but what about him playing a pass straight to there player it’s a roller coaster season alright now I’m off for a lie down in a dark room

  • Observations :
    1. Chelsea is playing atleast good footy.
    2. We have not so elite defenders but the set up is not helping the matters, this falls on the coaching.
    3. Kepa, is not a title winning gk. His errors really too many.. One against city, one against Valencia. A brilliant penalty save. Then misjudged their second goal… I think a better keeper would stop their first.
    4. I don’t trust batshuayi to lead our line… If not Abraham, pls start giroud.
    5. Valencia needed a win and were counter attacking…. Azpi had to run pass Reece?
    6. This Young guys lack game management… From 89 mins to end… You don’t make all cross…pull the back back, and hold the ball more… Had the guy score the last counter attack, we will be talking about Europa league now.
    Lampard should improve…. Mourinho is a manager who quickly see situations like these. I didn’t say go defensive. But professional game management is needed.
