Tuchel seeks to secure the third position and a win will stamp their Champions League spot for next season.
Speaking with the media the German stated that: ‘Andreas Christensen will be in the squad.”
“He did full training today and also yesterday without any problems so he will be back.
“Kai Havertz did a test today and will be in team training tomorrow.
“With N’Golo, it’s going to be very close but still some hopes that he maybe joins team training tomorrow. If not, then he will join on Monday.”
Tuchel further spoke on fellow compatriot Timo Werner as he stated that the former Leipzig player can improve more.
“He is still young and can still improve.” Tuchel said. “This is what we demand from him, not only week by week but also when there will be a bit of time to reflect and rest for him.
“I am sure that he can take the next steps. Next year he is not new anymore, he knows where he’s coming back to, he knows the environment and his team-mates, he knows what he’s up against and how to adapt and this will help him. We try to push the process right now because we need him.”
“Don’t forget that many goalscorers in Europe shoot penalties for their teams,” added Tuchel. “It’s very common that they reach these high numbers with penalties.
“If you add the penalties that we had to his numbers maybe everybody would be absolutely delighted with his first year.”
