Tuchel was talking up Koo so he may be back in the mix.  PJH out with injury.

LCY reportedly played well midweek and may get the start again though Bolton appear to be starting preparations for next season which may alter the mix.

Yun goes back to life on the bench... hopefully he gets a peek before/during playoffs.

Son had a mediocre first half before Leverkusen shifted him into a more counterattacking role.  He threatened the backline continuously with his movement even if the passes in didn't quite get there.  Finally he grabbed a loose ball and outran the defenders and provided a perfect assist.  We'll see how Lewandowski incorporates this vs Dortmund where Son should get the start.

Kimbo was ok enough before he gave away a foul resulting in a PK.   He turned invisible after and was subbed off.  I imagine this will result in bench if not outright out of squad as Ole is known to do.

Not sure of Ki's health.  Hopefully good enough for bench in a critical must win.

PJS is limping through to the finish line.  He should start if healthy.

HJH played well last weekend and may start again.  Ji saw his first minutes last weekend in quite some time as he nears full health.  Should see bench at least.
