Jamal Musiala will make his first Bundesliga start in Bayern Munich’s match against Werder Bremen.
The 17-year-old attacking midfielder has made his first-team breakthrough under Hansi Flick this season, appearing from the bench five times in Germany’s top flight before Saturday’s encounter.
His concluding goal in the 8-0 rout of Schalke made Musiala Bayern’s youngest ever goalscorer, having already become the youngest player in the Bavarian club’s history when he came off the bench against Freiburg last term.
Musiala returned to duty for Bayern this week having won his first England Under-21 cap during the international break, finding the net in a 5-0 win over Albania.
Formerly of Chelsea’s academy, Musiala was born in Germany and remains eligible to represent either England or Die Mannschaft at full international level.

At the other end of the experience spectrum, goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will make his 400th appearance for Bayern in all competitions.
Niklas Sule is short of match fitness, while fellow defender Bouna Sarr is out with a muscular problem as Flick’s side aim to increase their two-point lead over RB Leipzig at the Bundesliga summit.
