Champions League: Chelsea trio set to return against FC Porto

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has revealed Christian Pulisc, N'Golo Kante, and Tammy Abraham are fit to face FC Porto on Wednesday during the Champions League quarter-final first leg encounter. 

Kante sat out Chelsea's 5-2 loss to West Brom last weekend after he picked up a hamstring injury while on international duty with the national team France. Teammate Christian Pulisic also suffered the same injury on Saturday and was subbed at half time with Mason Mount coming in for the forward.

Tuchel has also confirmed Tammy Abraham, who has not featured in the past eight matches, would also be part of the squad.

Speaking on Tuesday ahead of the clash, Tuchel said, "They are fit enough to be in the squad and will be in the squad - all three."

"That's good news. Christian went off before an injury could happen. He said at half-time he feels like if he continues there will be an injury coming, so we decided to take him off."

"Tammy is in the squad and N'Golo just did a test and will be on the bench. He feels very comfortable, comfortable enough to be on the bench."

The Blues will travel to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan to face FC Porto before hosting the Portuguese side on the 13th of April at Stamford Bridge in the return leg.
