Antonio Rüdiger and Kepa Arrizabalaga were involved in a training-ground bust-up and could also miss out as a result. Meanwhile, Thiago Silva's red card against West Brom will have no impact on his availability for this fixture.

Our prediction: Porto v Chelsea

Chelsea certainly shouldn't underestimate a Porto side who have conceded just once at home in four Champions League games this season - although Wednesday's game will actually be played in Seville.

They've also won their last three league matches and have repeatedly performed well in Europe this term.

Despite that, Chelsea will want to show Saturday's thumping loss at Stamford Bridge was a one-off, and will hope to return to their usual defence-savvy selves.

Our prediction: Porto 0-1 Chelsea (5/1 at bet365)
