Match preview 

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard knows his side must improve defensively if they want to challenge in competitions such as the Champions League.

He explained: "I'm aware of the stats and the other stat is we've conceded second fewest shots.

"It helps to narrow down the issue. It's something we're aware of with recruitment and on the pitch with the players to make sure we set up well. We want to concede less, as do all teams at the moment."

Blues captain Cesar Azpilicueta has also opened up on how important it is to be tighter at the back ahead of the clash with Sevilla.

"When you're weak defensively sometimes we feel like we have to score three or four each game," Azpilicueta said.

"I see football as a collective. When we don't score, as a defender I think how can we put our attacking players in better situations.

"Through a season you are not going to be winning 3-0 or 4-0 every week. You have to work to get results and at the moment we have to improve that."

Left-back Marcos Alonso remains suspended following his red card against Bayern Munich last season but Edouard Mendy could return in goal.
