Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard rates their trip to FC Basle as a Champions League must-win.

The focus is on securing qualification for the knockout stages of the Champions League - something which eluded the 2012 European champions last season - and a victory at Basle which would secure top spot in Group E prior to the December 11 clash with Steaua Bucharest.

"We lost at home (to Basle), "Lampard said. "(But) we won their last year in the Europa League. Let's try to get that win.

"Then you can relax in that last game a little bit. We need to go and do the job."
