Kai Havertz though makes the trip as the knock he sustained in the premier league loss against West Ham was confirmed to be a minor one.

The players who made the squad include; Kepa Arrizabalaga, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Andreas Christensen, Thiago Silva, Romelu Lukaku, Christian Pulisic, Timo Werner, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Edouard Mendy, Saul Niguez, Ross Barkley, Mason Mount, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Hakim Ziyech, Reece James, Marcus Bettinnelli Cesar Azpilicueta, Kai Havertz and Malang Sarr.

Thomas Tuchel would be hoping that he can get the best out of a squad somewhat depleted in midfield as Loftus-Cheek and Saúl are the only two fit central midfielders.
