Raheem Sterling was absent but Kalidou Koulibaly joined the team on the Cobham pitch in the final training session before we face Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League.

We take on Dortmund in the first leg of our last-16 tie tomorrow evening and, ahead of travelling to Germany, the Chelsea players were putting the finishing touches on their plans with Graham Potter in training, with the first 15 minutes of the season open to media, as is usual before Champions League matches.

This will be our first European match since the end of the group stage back in November, as the knock-out rounds get under way, the Blues continuing our campaign with an away tie in western Germany, our first-ever competitive fixture against Borussia Dortmund.

Raheem Sterling took no part in the session, having missed our draw with West Ham United on Saturday after Potter revealed last week he had suffered a knock to his knee in training before that game.

However, there was better news as another player who missed that trip to the London Stadium, Kalidou Koulibaly, was involved from the start following the illness which ruled him out at the weekend.

Mateo Kovacic, Denis Zakaria and Wesley Fofana were also out on the Cobham training pitch with the team as they continue their recovery from injury.

There will be a further update from Potter on his squad when he sits down with the media for his pre-match press conference in Dortmund later today, joined by Cesar Azpilicueta. You can watch the press conference live on the official Chelsea website and The 5th Stand app from 7pm.
