These Chelsea fans go wild after Frank Lampard includes youngster in starting XI vs Rennes

Chelsea have confirmed their starting XI to face Rennes in the Champions League this evening – and some fans are delighted to see Callum Hudson-Odoi in the lineup.

The Blues head into tonight’s fixture against the Ligue 1 outfit knowing that a win would take them through to the knockout stages of the Champions League. However, Frank Lampard knows from experience that won’t suffice.

Chelsea progressed from their group only as runners-up to Ajax last term, meaning a clash with eventual winners Bayern Munich was handed to them in the next round. Over two legs, they were utterly decimated.

Here’s some of the reactions to Chelsea’s starting eleven.
