While the German midfielder was named in the team that will contend for the Premier League title — he’s still not expected to feature — he was left off the Europa League roster.

Axel Tuanzebe was named in the Europa League squad despite not making the Premier League roster, while Sadiq El-Fitouri sees the reverse.
