DOR vs CHE: Chelsea players who will be available in Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League match against Dortmund2 min read
Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with West Ham at the weekend was their third consecutive Premier League draw. Graham Potter’s side took the lead through Joao Felix, but Emeron Palmieri equalized for the Hammers to force overtime.
The Blues, on the other hand, had to shift their attention to Wednesday’s Champions League matchaway in Germany against Borussia Dortmund. There’s no doubt that the blues will struggle in this game, but they must still give it their all in order to win and gain some momentum for the rematch.
With that in mind, this article will look at the most recent injury reports at Stamford Bridge following the Blues’ previous match.
In time for this game, four of our top players have resumed full training:
1. Koulibaly, Kalidou
The Chelsea defender, who was unable to play against West Ham due to illness on Sunday, returned to training today. He will most likely replace Badiashile, who is not in the UCL squad.
Mateo Kovacic is number two.
Kovacic has been participating in intensive training since his return to training, indicating that he will almost certainly play in this game after being held out of the match against West Ham for resting purposes.
Denis Zakaria is third.
Zakaria has been training all day, so he should be ready for this crucial match.
Wesley Fofana is number four.
Wesley Fofaba has made progress in his training since he showed up to today’s training session in full force. He’s been cleared to compete in this must-win event.
Other people who have been injured and are still out are as follows:
1. Edouard Mendy
The Senegalese goalkeeper is still recovering from finger surgery and will not travel with the team to Dortmund on Wednesday.
Kante is doing some light exercise on his own again and is making progress in his recovery. He won’t be able to attend the game, it appears.

3. Raheem Sterling
Sterling was forced to miss Saturday’s game against West Ham due to a minor knee injury sustained on the practice field. He’s unlikely to play on Wednesday.
Benoit Badiashile is number four.
After being left off the team’s Champions League roster, the impressive Chelsea defender will sit this one out.
