Team News & Probable Line-Ups
Porto (4-4-2): Marchesin; Manafa, Pepe, Mbemba, Sanusi; Corona, Grujic, Uribe, Otavio; Marega, Martinez
Influential midfield Sergio Oliveira and talented striker Mehdi Taremi are suspended for the clash while Ivan Marcano and Mouhamed Mbaye are sidelined. Former Chelsea player Malang Sarr should be on the bench as Pepe and Chancel Mbemba should start as centre backs, with Zaidu Sanus and Wilson Manafà as full backs. Liverpool loanee Marko Grujic may get a rare start in central midfield, with Luis Diaz next in line to start - alongside Moussa Marega - up front with Taremi out.
Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen; Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Ziyech, Mount; Giroud
Chelsea winger Christian Pulisic picked up a tweak to his hamstring at the weekend but should be available for this clash. Anyway, Hakim Ziyech and Mason Mount are expected to play behind the lone forward Olivier Giroud. The likes of Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham and Kai Havertz provide further options. Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James are in competition at right wing-back as well as Marcos Alonso and Ben Chilwell on theN'Golo Kanté returned to full training and is fit enough to make the bench on Wednesday night.
Our FC Porto v Chelsea PredictionsChelsea have scored 11 goals and conceded just one in their four away victories in the tournament this season. Porto command plenty of respect after dumping Juventus out of the tournament but we fancy Chelsea to win for this one. A 1-0 narrow victory for the Blues looks the most likely outcome.
