Christian Pulisic, whose calf problems kept him out of Chelsea’s 1-1 draw at Southampton Saturday, is part of the squad’s traveling team for its UEFA Champions League Round of 16 encounter against Atletico Madrid Tuesday.
The first leg match will be played in the neutral site of Bucharest, Romania.
Pulisic and Kai Havertz were deemed healthy enough to play and were apart of the 23-man traveling squad.
‘I’m very happy that both Kai and Christian are in the group,” Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel said on the team’s website Monday. “They trained with us earlier and had no complaints. They will travel with us and they are in the squad for tomorrow.”
