Chelsea will look to continue their serene progress towards the Champions League knockout stages on Wednesday as they go in search of three points against Genk at Stamford Bridge.
The Blues have already picked up a valuable away point against Valencia and secured a win against Bayer Leverkusen to move them to the top of Group E, and now they will look to move one step closer to the knockout stages with a strong win against the Belgian side.

Chelsea made it five games unbeaten with a resounding 3-1 win over Everton on Saturday and boss Andre Villas Boas will be keen to keep the momentum going and bang in the goals in a fashion similar to their last two games where they have found the net eight times.
Villas Boas has a welcome selection dilemma up front after Daniel Sturridge staked a convincing claim for a regular starting spot with a well-taken goal against Everton, and with Fernando Torres returning from suspension to fight it out for a place with Didier Drogba who started against the Toffees, the former Porto boss has an embarrassment of riches to choose from.
Frank Lampard has responded brilliantly since being dropped for two consecutive games last month, scoring four in three games including a hat-trick against Bolton and is expected to start in midfield alongside Raul Meireles and Juan Mata, who has already proved his quality since moving to West London over the summer.
Genk will be looking to spring an upset against their illustrious opponents; however their current form doesn’t indicate they are up to the job.
Having claimed just two points from their last five league games they sit in 9th place, 7 points behind league leaders Anderlecht.
They’ll be reliant upon key striker Jelle Vossen to test the Chelsea backline, while wingers Kevin De Bruyne and Thomas Buffel will also pose problems.
