In this work we will present predictions for top-quark pair differential distributions at the LHC13 at NNLO QCD accuracy and including EW corrections. For the latter we include not only contributions of ${\mathcal O}(\alpha_s^2 \alpha)$, but also those of order ${\mathcal O}(\alpha_s \alpha^2)$ and ${\mathcal O}( \alpha^3)$. We will discuss the difference between the additive and multiplicative approach for the combination of QCD and EW corrections. Furthermore we will present results for the inclusive $A_C$ as well as several differential asymmetries at the LHC8. The material presented will be based on the arXiv:1705.04105 and arXiv:1711.03945 papers.
