There had been fitness doubts over the trio going into the quarter-final first leg, but the Tuchel confirmed all three would make up part of the squad.

“They are fit enough to be in the squad and will be in the squad,” Tuchel said on Abraham, Kante and Pulisic.

“Christian went out just before an injury could happen, he said it at half-time that if he continued there would be an injury coming so we took him off.
