Krasnodar v Chelsea: What has been said?Chelsea go into tonight’s tie fresh from successive goalless draws against Sevilla and Manchester United.Frank Lampard is happy to have seen his team sure things up at the back but now want his Blues side to get going in attack too.He said: “We were happy with some of the defensive side of our game in the last two games.“Sevilla was a tough match for our first game in the Champions League, but every game is different. We always try to be defensively strong, so those two games have been positives but we want good attacking football as well.“So we come to Krasnodar to win and we come here to score goals. It is a fantastic stadium, a good team, we know about them so we will respect them and we want to win.“We always try to play with the ball. Last season when we qualified for the Champions League we dominated possession in most games in the Premier League. Every game is different but dominating possession is part of how we want to play, but we respect the opposition.“We know they [Krasnodar] want to play and have possession, they have a lot of possession in their league games, not so much against Rennes in their first match, so we will try to take possession, not just for the sake of having possession but to attack and try to score some goals.”
