Chelsea are looking to progress into the Champions League quarter-finals but will have to overturn a one goal deficit against Borussia Dortmund.

Graham Potter‘s side were beaten narrowly in Germany last month despite a positive display after a counter-attack was finished off by Karim Adeyemi, who rounded Kepa Arrizabalaga in the 63rd minute to tap into empty net to seal a 1-0 victory.

Dortmund travel to the English capital for the second leg this week and face a Chelsea side that won their first game in seven matches, ending a run of three straight defeats in all competitions.

The Chelsea players are ready for the challenge that awaits, with Ben Chilwell and Ruben Loftus-Cheek both eyeing to knock Dortmund out.

Loftus-Cheek said: “We have a big game coming up against Dortmund here this week, and we expect to rise to that challenge.

“Anything can happen in the Champions League and we definitely think we can win on Tuesday.”

Meanwhile, Chilwell added: “We got the three points (against Leeds). We still have stuff to work on, but the main thing was three points and (getting) good momentum going into the biggest game of the season on Tuesday.”

Here is all the information for the Champions League encounter:

Reece James missed the 1-0 win over Leeds due to a tight hamstring. N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic both joined James in training on Monday.

However, Kante won’t be available. Pulisic is in the squad, while a late decision will be made on James’ involvement.

Mason Mount was also absent at the weekend with a lower abdomen problem. He’s suspended for the European clash after picking up a yellow card in the first leg.
