But Tuchel believes James – who has been out since December with a hamstring injury – needs more time to build confidence.

He said: “For Reece, I’m also a coach to not get over-stimulated by the pure dates that might be out there.

“The injury is a big one and I felt it immediately… we have to be patient.

“He had the flu last week and it took days for him to return to the team.

“He works hard and has the best in his hand.”
