The matchday programme for our game against Lille tonight includes exclusive interviews with Kepa Arrizabalaga and Marcel Desailly, notes from Frank Lampard and Cesar Azpilicueta, and special features focusing on our French past.
Kepa has tasted Champions League football for the first time this season and played a crucial role in our draw in Valencia last time out, saving a penalty which he discusses in a special Q and A.
We need to win tonight to guarantee our place in the competition after Christmas, and in his manager's notes Lampard stresses the role the fans can play, writing that 'a win in a crucial European game like this, under lights, can give everyone a lift and we will need you supporters at your best tonight, generating a big atmosphere.'
His skipper Azpilicueta wants us to respond collectively to recent league defeats: 'Through the season you can experience setbacks, but the most important thing is that you react as a team, as a strong unit, and return to winning ways straight away.'
We meet French opposition tonight and to mark the occasion, The Secrets of the Dressing Room feature is with Marcel Desailly, a World Cup winner with Les Bleus, who talks about the culture shock of playing in England.
Elsewhere in the programme, which features Christian Pulisic as the cover star, Through the Lens showcases a selection of wonderful images from our history against teams from over the Channel in the Champions League, including the famous comeback against PSG.
There is also an in-depth look at some Blues heroes from years gone by who also strutted their stuff in Ligue 1, featuring a former manager, a Ballon d'Or winner, and several Chelsea Players of the Year. Buy the programme tonight to find out who they are.
There is all this and plenty more, including a look at the tale of Chelsea's forgotten maiden European adventure in The Journey Home.
