Champions League 1/16 second leg- Chelsea vs Borussia Dortmund confirmed lineups

Graham Potter’s side at least go into tonight’s Stamford Bridge clash off the back of a victory, having edged past Leeds over the weekend. The run now stands at three wins in 16 matches, with goals still a clear problem. Injuries continue to hurt Chelsea, with the likes of Thiago Silva and Mason Mount out, but Reece James is fit to start.

Dortmund meanwhile have won all 10 games they have played in 2023, leaving them level on points with Bayern Munich at the top of the Bundesliga. They arrive in London full of confidence, even if first-leg match-winner Karim Adeyemi is out injured.
