Reece James returns to the Chelsea side for tonight’s Champions League round of 16 second-leg decider against Borussia Dortmund.
Chelsea vs Dortmund lineups
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.
The referee is Danny Makkelie from the Netherlands
