The Blue had their job cut out for them against an energetic Porto team that got them into tight spaces and forced them to play longer.

Chelsea will go into the game on the back of their biggest win under Tuchel with an away at Crystal Palace on Saturday. A Christian Pulisic’s brace added to goals from Kai Havertz and Kurt Zouma in a 4-1 win.

Meanwhile, Porto closed the gap between them and Sporting Lisbon in the Portuguese top flight with a comfortable 2-0 win over Tondela. Sergio Conceicao’s men have proven their worth without the ball and, if they want to beat Chelsea, they will have to be clinical.

With a couple of their players suspended back, Chelsea will need to be careful not to dismiss them until the blast of the final whistle.
