PSG's Cavani injured ahead of Man United game

PSG's Cavani injured ahead of Man United game

Television replays showed the Uruguayan grimacing and asking to be substituted.

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.

"I am anxious, but only because we are missing key players".

Asked if the victory was ideal preparation for facing PSG, Solskjaer said: 'Yes, I would have to say so because it's a tough place to come.

"We have to wait".

PSG are already without Neymar, who was ruled out with a foot injury, leaving the French side with only Kylian Mbappe as a world-class striking option. "It's too much. These are quality players and the game is decisive". He will hopefully play 45 minutes, but we have to decide. "For the big games in the Champions League, it is absolutely necessary to have key players with a lot of experience". We do not have a second Edi, nor a second Neymar. We are no longer looking at Plan B, but Plan D! If Edi is not there in Manchester, of course it is big.

"But, if two or three key players are not here, it's our duty to find solutions". My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to feature in Manchester.

The Uruguay forward has scored 21 in 25 appearances this season - only Kylian Mbappé has managed more in Ligue 1 - and if he is ruled out Tuchel will be hugely reliant on the France worldwide to carry the mantle against United.

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

Belgium right-back Thomas Meunier is also out of the first leg, with PSG confirming he suffered a concussion during Saturday's match. He clashed heads with Bordeaux's Francois Kamano when they contested a header on Saturday.

Mario Balotelli and Lucas Ocampos scored as Marseille won 2-1 at Dijon on Friday.
