Bruno Lage could be without up to five members of his squad due to various injuries, but he will be boosted by the return of striker Raul Jimenez from suspension.

As for Thomas Tuchel, his side are injury free but he now has to deal with five of his players testing positive for Covid-19, although Mateo Kovacic should return following his period of isolation.
