The game will be played at Stamford Bridge where returning hero Romelu Lukaku has already started to compensate for the massive transfer fee paid by Chelsea for his services. He has scored 4 goals already in Premier League and looking lean mean a blue goal scoring mechine at the moment. Chelsea were surprise winners of Champions League last time around, but this year although they are one of the favourites it will be difficult for them to get back to back wins.
