N’Golo Kante is also back in Chelsea training after a hamstring problem.

Last week, Chelsea Supporters’ Trust released a scathing statement attacking UEFA’s decision to move the match to Porto.

“The UEFA executives making these decisions clearly have little empathy or concern with match-going supporters. They are deeply out of touch,” it read.
