Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger will feature in the squad for the second leg of the Champions League last-16 tie with Barcelona.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has confirmed that Antonio Rudiger will feature in his squad for the Champions League fixture at Barcelona.

Rudiger was absent from the team which faced Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday evening, with Conte claiming that the Germany international was suffering with muscle fatigue.

However, at his pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday night's second leg, Conte said that Rudiger had fully recovered from the minor injury.

The 25-year-old has made 34 appearances during his opening season at Stamford Bridge, with five of those outings coming in Europe.

Conte added that he had no further injury news, casting doubt over the potential involvement of both Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ross Barkley.
