Manchester United players working hard ahead of Paris Saint Germain

Cavani expected to miss Man United clash but Verratti wants to play says Tuchel

Cavani expected to miss Man United clash but Verratti wants to play says Tuchel

The Red Devils fired Mourinho and have gone undefeated since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The change in management has led to a stunning turnaround in the team's fortunes - United have triumphed in 10 of their 11 games under the Norwegian, with Burnley the only side to stop them winning in his reign so far.

Kylian Mbappe is therefore the only member of PSG's vaunted front three to make this team, although the teenager is arguably the most important of trio from PSG's perspective having outscored both Neymar and Cavani this season.

Mbappe came to prominence as a 17-year-old during Monaco's run to the 2016/17 Champions League semi-finals and Ligue 1 title and has since continued to impress at PSG, scoring 43 goals since joining initially on a season-long loan in 2017.

One Paris Saint-Germain player that is very familiar with Old Trafford is Di Maria. We want to score and perhaps more than one. I want for us to be able to help him by finding him with good passes. A lot has changed since the draw.

"I always said let's not talk about Manchester United in December and January, let's talk about them in February when the game is coming and the game is now".

"With the confidence, they have at the moment, and how they play, I think they are favourites".

Tuchel refused to be drawn on what Solskjaer had done to achieve such impressive results but does expects United to be bold in their approach - just like their caretaker manager was during his playing days at the club.

It is a similar story for Marcus Rashford, who has been in fine form for United since being made their number one striker but would usually have to play second fiddle to Edinson Cavani had it not been for the hip injury which looks set to rule the Uruguayan out of this match.

"We have a word in Germany: if you go to the doctor and he heals you, he's right - it doesn't matter how!" He was a super risky player and he is now winning games as manager. Instead he chose to sign a brand-new two year deal to stay at Manchester United under Jose Mourinho who did seem to get on with the Belgian and relied on him in big games.
