PSG, on the other hand, are struggling with injuries and the mood around the camp is different compared to what it was when the tie was announced

Manchester United vs PSG – Team News

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not have any major concerns for his team selection as none of the first team stars barring Antonio Valencia are carrying injuries.

Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo are also injured but that will not stop the Solskjaer from fielding a strong side for the PSG clash.

Thomas Tuchel has a number of injury concerns to deal with ahead of the crucial match. Apart from Neymar, who is out with a leg injury for at least 10 months, striker Edinson Cavani is also set to miss the Manchester United clash with an injury he picked up against Bordeaux last weekend.

Right-back Thomas Meunier has also been sidelined with an injury, and will miss the next match.

Manchester United vs PSG – Predicted Lineups

Manchester United predicted lineup: De Gea, Young, Jones, Lindelof, Shaw, Pogba, Matic, Martial, Mata, Lingard, Rashford.

PSG predicted lineup: Buffon, Alves, Silva, Marquinhos, Bernat, Paredes, Verratti, Di Maria, Draxler, Choupo-Moting, Mbappe.

Manchester United vs PSG – Key Players

David De Gea has been in superb form of late in the Premier League and has kept back to back clean sheets against Leicester City and Fulham. He will need to muster another impressive display to help his side get over the line against the French giants.

Paul Pogba will also be expected to continue his stellar form as he has been the lynchpin for his side under Solskjaer.

With no Neymar and Cavani in the side, the onus will be on Kylian Mbappe to take the attack to the opposition in this crucial contest. Veteran goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will be another key player to keep the United attackers at bay.

Marco Verratti, who has returned from an injury, will need to marshal the midfield well and get the better of Pogba and Nemanja Matic.
