Chelsea are set to host Italian giants Juventus in a champions league clash that will decide who tops their group.
Juventus have won all their group games so far and are three points ahead of Chelsea. The Blues would be looking to end that run at home tomorrow and put themselves in prime position go qualify as group winners.
Speaking to the media ahead of the clash, Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri insinuated that Chelsea are a more difficult side to play against without Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku.
Max Allegri: “We are playing for first place tomorrow with a team that is currently first in the Premier [League]. With [Romelu] Lukaku they play in one way, without counter-attackers and fewer points of reference.”Romeo Agresti
Chelsea signed Lukaku from Inter Milan in the summer in a deal worth £97.5 million and the Belgian scored just four times for the Blues before his injury about a month ago.
Chelsea might still be without Lukaku tomorrow as the 28-year old is just returning to full fitness.
