Rennes v Chelsea: Champions League – live!

Lampard aims to wrap up qualification early here so there are minimal changes to his starting lineup: this team should be plenty good enough to get the job done, though Ziyech and Havertz (and Giroud, obviously) are on the bench in case reinforcements are required. As for Rennes, injuries force them to give a first start of the season to Gerzino Nyamsi, who will have to rise to the challenge quickly in the heart of the home defence.

Rennes: Gomis; Traoré, Da Silva, Nyamsi, Truffert; Bourigeaud, Nzonzi, Camavinga; Doku, Gurassy, Lea Siliki

Subs: Salin, Omari, Grenier, Niang, Maoussa, Gboho, Tait, Del Castillo, Hunou, Soppy, Rutter

Chelsea: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Silva, Chilwell; Kovacic, Jorginho, Mount; Hudson-Odoi, Abraham, Werner

Subs: Kepa, Emerson, Rüdiger, Alonso, Christensen, Kanté, Caballero, Tomori, Giroud, Ziyech, James, Havertz
