Pulisic had made three consecutive starts prior to picking up the injury and the 24-year-old will likely be named on the bench for tonight’s second-leg meeting.

Chelsea must overturn a one-goal deficit against the German side if they are to reach the quarter-finals.

Graham Potter’s side got back to winning ways on Saturday and are now looking to record back-to-back victories.

Jamie Carragher between Chelsea and Dortmund as he told Sky Sports: ‘It’s a huge game.

‘There was a lot of talk before the Leeds game about the pressure on Graham Potter and him potentially losing his job.

‘I think from Graham Potter’s point of view, winning that game [against Leeds] probably gives them a bit of breathing space ahead of the Dortmund game.

‘I still expect them to get through, Chelsea. They dominated Dortmund in the first leg. They find themselves behind but I think they were by far the better team so I expect them to go through.’

Dortmund are the only team in Europe’s top five leagues to have won every game in 2023.
