Chelsea face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League and the confirmed team news is in from Stamford Bridge.

Graham Potter‘s side are currently one nil behind heading into the second leg after Dortmund’s 1-0 win in Germany last month. Karim Adeyemi’s second half goal punished the Blues who were wasteful at the Signal Iduna Park.

But Chelsea are still right in the tie – also with the away goals rule being scrapped – given they need just one goal to level the aggregate score.

“Our thoughts are positive and we’re trying to win the game. They’re a top opponent and are in a fantastic vein of form, winning games constantly.
