Chelsea face Borussia Dortmund in the last-16 of the Champions League and the confirmed team news is in from Signal Iduna Park.

Graham Potter’s side head to Germany to face Dortmund in the first leg of the clash, looking to bring a positive result back to Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have struggled for form in the Premier League, sitting tenth currently, and will welcome a change in competition.

Speaking ahead of the clash, Potter discussed his side’s chances.

He said: “It’s the knockout stage of the Champions League. The absolute pinnacle. A great test against a fantastic club.

“80,000 fans here. A wonderful occasion. We are looking forward to it and understand the challenge. Really excited for it.”

With just two wins from their last 13 games, Chelsea face a tough test if they are to come out victorious.

However, Potter has the opportunity to make history tonight as he could become the first Englishman to win five Champions League games in a row.
