Thomas Tuchel has indicated his desire to start Timo Werner up front alongside club record signing Romelu Lukaku.

Wednesday night clash against Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup could give Tuchel the chance to experiment.

Tuchel said: “Timo can play with Romelu, that is sure, and he did very well at Tottenham the last 25 to 30 minutes of the match.

“That gave us a clear impression of how dangerous these two can be together.

“There was some disappointment to brush off Timo’s shoulders from the Euros during the summer, and from the first games here I think he was not happy with the performances in the beginning.

“We were not absolutely happy because we know that he can be much more of an attacking threat than he was.

“But in the last training sessions he was more relaxed, more fluid in his movements with more confidence, and that’s why we put him on early against Tottenham because we saw his development.

“We had him in dangerous positions around Romelu, he was not too far out on the pitch, he was in and around the box and he had his chances, and the assist which was well done.

“In training he moves more freely and his decision-making is with more confidence.

“There are clear signs that he is in a good way, and I hope he can show and prove it tomorrow.”
