Both players are expected to start, who will likely see Mateo Kovacic back on the bench, with Jorginho expected to join Kante in a double-six role.
With the addition of a defender to choose from, Tuchel had to decide whether to field for Cesar Azpilicueta at wing-back position or choose between his captain and Andreas Christensen to play on the right of the three-back.
Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger are expected to be named as the other center-backs.
Perhaps the attack was where Tuchel faced the most dilemma, Timo Werner̵7;s problems in front of goal continued, but City struggled to cope with his pace and movement.
Meanwhile, Hakim Ziyech has scored in both of Chelsea’s last games against the Premier League champions.
Mason Mount is some starter. That means Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic were both sweating their involvement.
Before the game, Tuchel said: “ I would say I trust everyone fully when it comes to hunger. Always at the highest level in sports, it depends on the question of how much you want it. But I felt we were very focused, very disciplined, building this week.
“I feel we have real confidence, which is really nice and a great feeling to come to the finals as well. We feel like we work hard to be here. We truly feel the hunger. We are happy. But don’t want to be here too much We want to get too excited after the race.
“We are here to win trophies. Maybe a little loser But this hasn’t changed and we want to leave Porto with a trophy. ”
