Pau Lopez should start in goal against Ajax, with Bryan Cristante back in defence. Rick Karsdorp is expected at right and Riccardo Calafiori at left, with Jordan Veretout next to Diawara in the middle.

Coach Paulo Fonseca should lean on Lorenzo Pellegrini and Mkhitaryan to support Dzeko in attack.
