Given how crucial the match is, the English tactician will be looking to parade a strong side that can get the job done at home.

Potter already has a triple injury boost in the shape of Edouard Mendy, N'Golo Kante, and Marc Cucurella, with the trio expected to feature against the Italian giants.

Should that be the case, Mendy could potentially take his place between the sticks, with Cucurella partnering Wesley Fofana and Thiago Silva in a back three.
