- Christian Pulisic and N'Golo Kante have been nursing hamstring injuries
- It was earlier thought Pulisic would not play any role in Chelsea's Champions League meeting vs FC Porto
- The American is now part of the squad that travelled to Spain for the quarter-final tie
Thomas Tuchel has been handed a major injury boost after the pair of N'Golo Kante and Christian being declared fit for FC Porto Champions League meeting.
The Blues are scheduled to face the Portuguese giants in the first leg of their quarter-final meeting on Wednesday night, April 7, in Seville.
Tuchel will now have a pool of important squad players to select from for the crucial encounter, with Kante and Pulisic expected to provide more strength in midfield and power upfront.
Pulisic pulled up a hamstring issue prior to the second half of his side's 5-2 shock defeat in the hands of relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion at the weekend.
The American was making a warm-up run at the time but had to stop after 10 yards and was therefore unable to see out the rest of the match.
Kante had also been battling a hamstring problem which kept him sidelined for the Hawthorns encounter.
The two will be joined by strikers Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud who are also available for selection.
Tuchel's men booked a place in the last eight after dispatching Atletico Madrid in both legs of the round of 16.
Porto, on the other hand, got the better of Juventus in their own tie to set up a meeting with the west Londoners.
Both legs of the quarter-final tie are scheduled to be played at Seville's Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium.
