Chelsea are coming into this match with a slew of injuries and absences, including Christian Pulisic (knee), Edouard Mendy (finger), Raheem Sterling (knee), Mateo Kovacic (calf), and Wesley Fofana (knee). They’ve hit a poor run of form as of late, winning just one of their last eight matches across all competitions. Currently sitting in ninth place in the Premier League, head coach Graham Potter finds himself in the hot seat just a few months after taking over the reins following Thomas Tuchel’s sacking in September.
Dortmund are in a very different situation, riding an eight-match winning streak across all competitions dating back to January 10. They sit in third place in Bundesliga, just two points behind Union Berlin and three points back from league leaders Bayern Munich. They’re led by Jude Bellingham, who scored four goals in the group stage while young American Giovanni Reyna leads with two assists in UCL play this season.
Take Dortmund to get all three points at home here, as the Blues essentially look like a shell of the team who took home the Champions League title just two years ago.
