PSG striker causes new injury headache before Man Utd clash

  • Good News for Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain suffer possible double injury blow ahead of Champions League clash

The Uruguay worldwide was forced off just moments after scoring a 42nd-minute penalty in Saturday evening's 1-0 win over Bordeaux in Ligue 1.

The French champions play Manchester United in the Champions League round of 16 on Tuesday. My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to play.

'In any case, we must wait a bit more as the exams are still ongoing.

"I can't think about so many different plans in advance. But the first exams are not good".

'I am anxious, but only because we are missing key players. "In matches like these, decisive Champions League games, you absolutely need your key men as they are experienced in handling pressure in matches like this one".

Verratti played for an hour on Saturday after three weeks out with an ankle injury, and Tuchel admitted he might have to risk the Italian due to their injury problems.

With Edinson Cavani picking up an injury against Bordeaux, the FC panel examine how PSG would line up if he's ruled out against Manchester United.

Hence, Manchester United has a good chance to beat the Ligue 1 leaders to assert their dominance in European football. He even went so far to say that he believes Solskjaer has "already got the job" but it hasn't been announced yet.

The Man United vs PSG clash at Old Trafford this Tuesday will be the first European game for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ever since he took charge of the club.

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".

And Mbappe's highlights from the second-half look promising for United, because without Neymar and Cavani, he was forced to drop deep a lot.

Tuchel said: "Tonight Edinson suffered a muscle injury".

While Tuchel needs Verratti against a United midfield featuring the in-form Paul Pogba, the 58 minutes he played may not be enough to get his rhythm back in time to face a revitalized United.

When United were initially pitted against Les Parisiens, very few gave them the chance, given their struggles to garner regular wins under ex-boss Jose Mourinho.
