Chelsea will face French side Lille away on Wednesday in the second matchday of the UEFA Champions League 2019-20. The London club lost 1-0 at home to the Spaniards a fortnight ago and the Group H game in northern France has taken on extra importance for both sides with Lille on the rebound from a 3-0 defeat away to Ajax.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is confident his team can put their defeat against Valencia in their opening Champions League game behind them.
Chelsea are fresh from winning their last two matches, including a 2-0 victory against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday, which left a team sprinkled with youth in seventh in the Premier League.
Defender Fikayo Tomori and striker Tammy Abraham, both 21, will both hope to keep their places against Lille along with 20-year-old midfielder Mason Mount.
Meanwhile, Lampard is hopeful midfielder N'Golo Kante will be fit to return after missing the last two matches in what has so far been an injury-hit season for him. The France star trained on Tuesday morning and will be assessed on the morning of the game.
Barkley, who missed a penalty against Valencia, featured in several tabloid newspaper reports after apparently dropping takeaway food in the back of a taxi.
