Erik ten Hag has selected 20 players for the UEFA Champions League game against AEK. Hakim Ziyech (injury) and Nico Tagliafico (suspension) will have to sit out the game in Athens.
There had been a sliver of hope that Ziyech would have recovered on time for the game, but that’s not the case. Donny van de Beek, who was substituted on Saturday against NAC, is in the selection.
