Chelsea press conference live: Thomas Tuchel on Porto, Champions League and injury news

It’s a defining week for Thomas Tuchel and Chelsea as they embark on two big cup fixtures both at home and abroad.

Chelsea take on Man City in the FA Cup semi final this weekend but there is another game to get through before that arrives.

Business on the continent is up first though as Chelsea travel to Seville for a second time in a week as they face Porto in the Champions League quarter final second leg in Spain.

The Blues secured a 2-0 victory over their Portuguese opponents last week at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan to put themselves in the driving seat for the second leg, with two “away goals” courtesy of Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell.

It was a massive result for Tuchel with his side coming off the back of the 5-2 humbling at the hands of West Bromwich Albion four days previously.

Tuchel’s men are firm favourites to progress in the Champions League and through to the semi finals for the first time since 2014.

Tammy Abraham’s troublesome ankle means he is still a doubt as well for the visit to Seville this week. N’Golo Kante has featured twice since he picked up a hamstring injury on international duty with France so should be available for selection for Tuchel on Tuesday.
