Man United vs PSG

Manchester United may have received a boost in their prospects of beating Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League after both Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier were hauled off the pitch against Bordeaux with injury concerns.

Uniting Neymar in a stellar forward line alongside Kylian Mbappe and Edinson Cavani has also left PSG short-handed in other areas due to financial fair play restrictions, particularly in central midfield.

Under caretaker manager Solskjaer, United have won 10 and drawn one of their last 11 games in all competitions, with a 3-0 victory at Fulham on Saturday lifting them back into the top four of the Premier League. My feeling is that it's going to be very hard for Ed to play, but we have to wait a little longer because he's taking exams now.

"Our game against Manchester United needs to be beefier, stronger, with a different attitude". Yes it is worrying. "But we have to wait for the doctor's opinion to see if it's possible or not".

Cavani scored the only goal of the game from the spot in PSG's win over Bordeaux on Saturday, but he was unable to finish the match and limped off soon after finding the net, reportedly with a thigh strain.

On Sunday, they lost for the first time in the league this season, 2-1 to Lyon, then needed extra time to beat third tier Villefranche in the French Cup on Wednesday.

PSG will are already missing superstar striker Neymar sidelined until at least April with a foot injury.

Coach Thomas Tuchel will be concerned whether Cavani, who clutched his right leg before going off, will be fit for Tuesday's trip to Old Trafford in the first leg of the last 16.

"There is a very small hope", Tuchel said. "It is definitely not a good sign". We have to analyse Manchester United, we have to stay calm and confident. "Without Ney [Neymar], maybe without Marco, maybe without Edi [Cavani], now we need a plan D".

Asked if today's win was ideal preparation for facing PSG, he said: "Yes, I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come". "We have to have a great game".

PSG face rejuvenated Man United side who are yet to lose since the arrival of Solskjaer in December 2018.
