PSG striker causes new injury headache before Man Utd clash

PSG striker causes new injury headache before Man Utd clash

The trio have smashed an incredible 48 goals in the French top flight this season, as the Parisians have opened up a 13-point lead at the Ligue 1 summit.

The French giants travel to Old Trafford on Tuesday for the first-leg of their Champions League last-16 tie with United.

The Brazilian will miss both legs of the tie against United due to a metatarsal injury in his right foot, the same problem that forced him to miss the second leg of PSG's defeat to Madrid a year ago.

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. In my opinion, the news will not be very very good.

"We have to rethink everything for Manchester United when players like that get hurt". If Edi is not there in Manchester, of course it is big. We have to play a big match. "But we're ready for Manchester and I have faith in my players".

Speaking after the game, PSG coach, Tuchel told reporters: "Not good news". My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to feature in Manchester. "But the first exams are not good". "Hope is very, very small".

The was some good news for PSG as midfielder Marco Verratti returned to the line-up after recovering from an ankle injury. "We have to have a great game".

"Normally, it's very hard to play so soon when you have been injured as Marco has".

Now though the manager has come out to claim that Marco Verratti is certainly in contention for the Man United game after he training with the first team.

"He played 60 minutes, I don't know if it's possible for him to play again at Old Trafford against Manchester United only three days later". We have to decide tomorrow [Sunday] about that.

"We have to wait".

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".
