Adams, who turns 21 on Friday, has made five appearances in all competitions this season, having only returned from seven months out with a groin problem in December. He started the 0-0 draw with Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich on Saturday - their second consecutive draw and one which left Leipzig without a win in four games in all competitions.

"Our football improved against Bayern. It's a step in the right direction. The game has given the players confidence; training has been full of determination and power this week," Nagelsmann said today. "The team lacked stability before Bayern. There have been a lot of new elements in training in recent weeks that challenged them. I'm confident we can shake off this mini struggle, though, and believe that we already have."
