Man-Utd-PSG: Neymar and Cavani give Tuchel tactical headache

  • Cavani reacts after he gets an injury against Girondins de Bordeaux

Neymar has been ruled out until April with a metatarsal injury and striker Edinson Cavani, who has scored 22 goals this season, is a huge doubt after PSG confirmed that he sustained an injury to his right thigh against Bordeaux.

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

The French champions will be missing Brazil forward Neymar, who has been ruled out with a foot injury, for the last-16 first-leg clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

"I think it was the right time to leave", Fellaini told Telefoot.

Can PSG overcome Manchester United on Tuesday night, despite the absence of Neymar and Cavani?

"In any case, we must wait a bit more as the exams are still ongoing".

Kate Brown urges vaccines as measles cases grow to 55
About 600 people a day were vaccinated during the last week of January, compared to 200 people during the same period a year ago . Some 82,596 people in 47 of 53 countries contracted measles , the highest number this decade and three times the figure in 2017.

Head coach Thomas Tuchel has admitted both the striker and midfielder Marco Verratti could be forced to miss the United game. "We have a plan D", German Tuchel said.

"It is super hard, and if we are missing several players, the challenge is even greater". Without "Ney", maybe without Marco, maybe without "Edi". If Edi is not there in Manchester, of course it is big. "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".

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 global to carry the mantle against United.

Verratti lasted just under an hour before making way for recent signing Leandro Paredes, and Tuchel must now decide whether to start the Italian playmaker in England.

Meunier has suffered concussion and will be examined again at the end of this week before he can return to action.
