Chelsea are scheduled to host Porto in the second leg of their Champions League tie tonight. They have a handy 2-0 advantage from the first leg and are favourites to reach the last four of the competition.
Edouard Mendy is the Blues’ undisputed choice in goal for the Premier League and European games. He is expected to start between the sticks.
The central defence may see a solitary change from the weekend with Thiago Silva replacing Kurt Zouma. He should feature in the middle of the back three with Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger either side.
Mateo Kovacic is likely to miss the game after sustaining an injury in the final training session yesterday. This should see the return of N’Golo Kante to the starting XI. He is expected to partner Jorginho in the midfield.
Predicted Chelsea line-up (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Mount, Pulisic; Havertz.
