Thomas Tuchel makes five changes for Chelsea’s FC Porto test as Kai Havertz and Mason Mount return for Chelsea’s FC Porto test

Tuchel rings the changes

Chelsea are in Sevilla tonight to play FC Porto in the first leg of their Champions League Quarter Final. It is The Blues first time that they are still in the competition at this stage in 7 years.

The winners will face the winners of the Real Madrid vs Liverpool tie. Liverpool have it all to do after losing 3-1 in Madrid last night.

They will be keen to put their 5-2 defeat to West Brom firmly behind them and prove that it was just a freak result as opposed to a warning to how the rest of their season is to play out.

Thomas Tuchel mentioned in his pre match press conference yesterday that he was able to welcome Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante back into his squad.

There are five changes from Saturday’s debacle, with Antonio Rudiger,  Andreas Christensen, Ben Chillwell, Mason Mount and Kai Havertz all coming into the starting eleven.

Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma, Marcos Alonso, Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic all drop to the bench, which highlights the strength in depth  Chelsea have in their squad.
