What is the team news?
After firing four past Crystal Palace and keeping a clean sheet against Porto, again Thomas Tuchel has some tough decisions to make.
Kai Havertz was excellent as a false No9 at Selhurt Park, opening the lead and creating for Christian Pulisic, who scored twice too.
The pair, alongside playmaker Mason Mount, will expect to keep their place for the European clash.
That would mean benching Timo Werner again, despite the German being preferred to Pulisic in Spain last week.
But the American’s double, Havertz’s performance and Mount’s consistency means they are all primed to play.
Although should Tuchel sense some tired legs, Werner is available to start on either flank, or through the middle.
Olivier Giroud and Tammy Abraham have both made the bench in the last two matches and compete for a place up front.
