Timo Werner has returned to the bench after a hamstring injury. Speaking on his inclusion, Tuchel said: "We decided yesterday for Timo to be on the bench, because he feels absolutely free.

"Nothing is holding him back, so we said we would take the chance. We only have three substitutes so I don't know if he will have the chance to play."

Chalobah has earned a re-call to the starting XI also, as he 'deserves to play'.

"Trevoh deserves it. He's a good fit with his speed and his height for set-pieces. He deserves to play." said Tuchel
