KAI HAVERTZ – Chelsea (v Borussia Dortmund – H)
Despite only scoring once since the turn of the year, Kai Havertz could be an interesting option in a must-win game for Chelsea.
The German midfielder has been used as a striker during the Blues’ injury crisis, and he was busy in the first leg – registering four shots against a stout Dortmund defence.
While Havertz has never scored a competitive goal against the Bundesliga side, he has registered three assists in eight career appearances, so he could be involved in some capacity here.
The former Leverkusen midfielder will likely be utilised up front once again, so if he receives a decent level of service, Havertz could pick up a decent score this week.

HARRY KANE – Tottenham (v AC Milan – H)
With Tottenham needing to win at all costs, Harry Kane could well step up for the North London side this week.
Spurs are currently 1-0 down on aggregate to Serie A side AC Milan, and anything less than a win means the Premier League side are out of the Champions League.
Kane boasts a respectable record in the competition, providing 26 goal contributions in 31 career starts in the European competition.
Milan have only managed to keep one away clean sheet in all competitions since returning from the World Cup break, so Kane could well find the net in this fixture.
