Chelsea's N'Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic are declared fit for Porto

Chelsea have been handed a double injury boost ahead of their Champions League quarter-final first-leg tie against Porto on Wednesday night.

Midfielder N'Golo Kante and winger Christian Pulisic have both been passed fit to be among Thomas Tuchel's travelling party to Seville.

Pulisic pulled up with a hamstring issue prior to the second half of the Blues' shock 5-2 defeat by West Brom on Saturday.

As the United States international ran out for the second half warm-up he stopped after 10 yards and was unable to continue past the first cone.

Tuchel had planned to bring on Mason Mount for striker Timo Werner but the Blues boss had to make a last-minute alteration and replace Pulisic instead.

Kante has recovered from a hamstring problem which saw him miss the defeat last weekend.

Strikers Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud are also available for the first leg against Porto in Spain on Wednesday.
