UEFA Champions League

Check out how Chelsea could line up against Porto Fc for the second leg.

Thomas Tuchel has a luxury of fully-fit squad for his side's second leg of their champions league quarter-finals with Porto on Tuesday.

Goalkeeper Eduardo Mendy claimed his seventh successive champions league win in a 2-0 first leg triumph. Another win on Tuesday would see him go level with Fabien Barthez as the goalkeeper with the most consecutive champions league victories at an English club.

Tuchel had to make do without Thiago Silva at the weekend due to suspension, but the well-rested Brazilian could replace Kurt zouma in the center defense, while Andreas Christensen will hope to earn a start over Antonio Rudiger.

Ngolo Kante was quite fit enough to appear as a substitute in the win over Crystal palace, and he is in contention to start over Jorginho on Tuesday. However, Reece James and Marcus Alonso could also feature out wide in place of Callum Hudson Odoi and Ben Chilwell.

Mason Mount is simply undroppable right now, no risk would be taken by Tuchel over Pulisic again after his recent injuries, so that gives Hakim Ziyech a spot behind the striker. The attacking position maybe for a debate as Kai Havertz is seen with a good performance last premier league game. Giroud and Tammy Abraham are also waiting in the wings

Below contains the possible lineups Chelsea could use against Porto Fc at Stamford Bridge.
