The defender returns as one of two changes Graham Potter makes to the team that started Saturday’s win against Leeds, James having missed that one with a tight hamstring.

Elsewhere Marc Cucurella comes in for Benoit Badiashile, who is ineligible. It looks like a back three again, with James and Ben Chilwelloperating at wing-back.

Enzo partners skipper Mateo Kovacic in midfield, and Potter keeps faith with the front three of Kai Havertz, Joao Felix and Raheem Sterling that looked dangerous on Saturday.

Chelsea: Kepa, W.Fofana, Koulibaly, Cucurella, James, Enzo, Kovacic (c), Chilwell, Sterling, Havertz, Joao Felix.

Subs: Bergstrom, Bettinelli, Hall, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek, Gallagher, Zakaria, Chukwuemeka, Mudryk, Pulisic, Ziyech

Dortmund: Meyer; Wolf, Sule, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro; Can; Brandt, Bellingham, Ozcan, Reus (c); Haller.

Subs: Kobel, Unbehaun, Hummels, Meunier, Reyna, Dahoud, Passlack, Bynoe-Gittens, Malen, Rothe, Coulibaly, Modeste.
