Christian Pulisic will be a part of the Chelsea squad that travels to Seville for their Champions League quarter-final first leg against Porto.

The American was substituted at half-time in Saturday’s 5-2 home loss to West Brom, but has proved his fitness.

Midfielder N’Golo Kante is fit after a hamstring issue, although he may only make the bench.

Strikers Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud will travel as the Blues look to bounce back from the weekend defeat.

The surprise loss to the Baggies was the first Chelsea have suffered in 15 games since Thomas Tuchel succeeded Frank Lampard as manager – a run that includes home and away victories over Atletico Madrid to reach the last eight.

“We got a big slap in the face, and it was required to remind us how tough it is to keep winning,” said the German.

“I have the feeling we can overcome Porto but it will be tough. They are very experienced, but we are strong enough and believe in ourselves.”

In the aftermath of Saturday’s loss, there was a training ground bust-up between goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga and defender Antonio Rudiger, but Tuchel says both players have settled their differences. (BBC)
