Elsewhere, the star of Monday’s FA Youth Cup fixture, Raheem Stirling, has earned a place in Liverpool’s Europa League squad travelling to Prague.

Chelsea are at the centre of a Dutch FA investigation into their controversial move for 15-year-old Feyenoord prospect Nathan Ake.
The inquiry centres on the Blues’ £670,000 signing of the highly rated youngster and the role played by agent Dan Kramp of Forza Fides agency.
