Porto v Chelsea: Champions League quarter-final – live!

I’ll bring you tonight’s teams as soon as they’re released. What we do know is that Porto will be without their captain and top-scorer Sérgio Oliveira as well as forward Mehdi Taremi, who are both suspended.

Chelsea have some good news on the fitness front: N’Golo Kanté is back in the squad after missing the West Brom defeat, although is not widely expected to start. Christian Pulisic is also available after coming off at half-time on Saturday with a hamstring niggle. Last but not least, Tammy Abraham is also fit enough to be included in the squad, but again, is not expected to start.

Porto’s manager, Sérgio Conceição, also had an unseemly incident to deal with recently – although in his case it was a set-to involving himself and the Portimonense manager Paulo Sérgio.
