Midfield: Kovacic, Jorginho

Among a hugely competitive crop of midfielders, Saul Niguez had a debut to forget against Villa, while Mateo Kovacic stated a convincing case to the Chelsea boss.

The metronomic Jorginho, crowned as UEFA’s Men’s Player of the Season for his exploits last term, is also likely to get the nod.

As for N’Golo Kante, Tuchel confirmed that Tuesday’s tie will come ‘a bit too early’ as an ankle injury continues to hamper the start of his season.
