PSG missing Cavani for Champions League 1st leg v Man United

The French champions face Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's resurgent side at Old Trafford in the first leg on Tuesday. Thomas Tuchel confirmed at the post-match presser that there was indeed a muscle tear, but then we await the seriousness of the injury.

Brazilian forward Neymar suffered a broken metatarsal in a 2-0 French Cup victory over Strasbourg on Wednesday, 23 January and was ruled out for 10 weeks.

"I can't think about so many different plans in advance".

"In any case, we must wait a bit more as the exams are still ongoing". My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to feature in Manchester. 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.

"[There is a] very small hope, but the first tests were not good". The sight of the injury worries me.

"There are a lot of plans B. Without Ney, maybe without Marco, maybe without Edi".

Fellaini was strongly linked with a move away from Manchester United ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, before eventually signing a new contract with the 20-time English champions.

Marco Verratti is also a doubt, the midfielder managing only 59 minutes against Bordeaux after recovering from an ankle injury. "They need to know how to control and handle the pressure, but without two or three of them, it is up to us to come up with solutions".

"Verratti can play and will play", said the German coach.

However, with the Portuguese's sacking, United have been on the uptrend under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and they are now unbeaten in 11 successive games which includes 10 wins.
