Predicted Chelsea line-up vs Porto


Chelsea will be aiming to return to winning ways when they face Porto in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final tonight.

The Blues suffered an embarrassing 5-2 loss to West Bromwich Albion at the weekend, and they will be aiming to make amends.

Formation: 3-4-2-1

Predicted Line-up:

Edouard Mendy is the Blues’ undisputed shot-stopper and he is expected to start.

There could be a solitary change in the central defence with Kurt Zouma being replaced by Antonio Rudiger.

Reece James should continue in the right wing-back role, but Marcos Alonso could be replaced by Ben Chilwell on the opposite end.

In midfield, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic are expected to start with N’Golo Kante not fit enough to make the starting XI after a hamstring injury.

There could be a complete reshuffle of the attack with Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic dropping to the bench.

Mason Mount could be accompanied by Kai Havertz in the attacking midfield with Olivier Giroud leading the line.

The away leg is being played in Seville due to coronavirus restrictions. Giroud netted four goals in the stadium earlier this season against Sevilla.

Predicted Chelsea line-up (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Mount, Havertz; Giroud.
