Chelsea are back in action with another UEFA Women’s Champions League fixture this week as they take on Servette Chenois on Thursday. The Blues have an impressive squad at their disposal and hold the upper hand this week.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are at the top of the group at the moment and have been impressive this year. The English giants fell short of European glory last season and will be intent on making amends in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
