Champions League: Predicted Chelsea line-up (3-4-2-1) vs FC Porto


In Seville tonight, Chelsea will play Porto in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash.



Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell scored goals in the first leg to give the Blues a 2-0 lead.

They have a decent chance of reaching the competition's final four for the first time since the 2013/14 season.

Thomas Tuchel's side is coming off a sensational 4-1 Premier League victory over Crystal Palace.

Line-up to be Predicted:


For league and European matches, Edouard Mendy is the Blues' first-choice goalkeeper, and he is most likely to start ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Andreas Christensen is available for selection after missing the weekend game due to a minor ailment, but he may not be rushed back.



Thiago Silva could replace Kurt Zouma as a solitary improvement in the central defense. Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger are likely to be his teammates.

Silva should be in good shape for the game after missing the derby and only appearing for a 10-minute appearance in the previous meeting against Porto.

Due to his well-rounded defensive skills, Callum Hudson-Odoi should be replaced in the right wing-back role by Reece James.

Ben Chilwell is likely to start ahead of Marcos Alonso and Emerson at the other end, particularly after his crucial away goal against Porto last week.

N'Golo Kante is expected to start in midfield. Since returning from a hamstring injury, the Frenchman has made a handful of substitute appearances.



It would be difficult to choose between Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic, but the latter is said to have injured himself in the final training session before the game.

There could be no changes from the weekend in the future. Mason Mount has scored a goal or assisted on a goal in each of his last three games. He will undoubtedly begin.

Christian Pulisic, who was in sublime form against Palace, scoring a goal in each half, can be said the same.



After making his best league appearance of his Blues career last weekend, Kai Havertz is likely to stay in the false number nine spot.

He had a goal and an assist, but he could easily have had a hat-trick. Timo Werner and Olivier Giroud will be relegated to the bench.

Mendy; Azpilicueta, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Kante, Chilwell; Mount, Pulisic are the predicted starting XI.
