PSG Boss Delivers Update On Edison Cavani Ahead Of Manchester United Clash

Head coach Thomas Tuchel has admitted both the striker and midfielder Marco Verratti could be forced to miss the United game.

Speaking after the game, PSG coach, Tuchel told reporters: "Not good news".

"But, in our situation, it's maybe necessary to try to make him play".

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

When questioned about Cavani's chances of playing at Old Trafford, Tuchel replied: "A little hope, very small, but yes, we still have hope". José Mourinho was still in charge at the time, and nobody could see the tie going any other way than United getting absolute spanking from the French champions. "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".

"It'll be super hard [for him to play at Old Trafford]. If we are missing lots of key players, it's an even bigger challenge, but we will be ready on Tuesday, I think".

Six of the best new artist nominees are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Margo Price, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith. Carlile told the AP she stands "behind Ariana Grande's decision to stand up for herself and her art".

The reigning champions are 13 points clear at the top with a game in hand on second-placed Lille, who visit Guingamp on Sunday.

Tuchel may be trying to play some mind games here.

If Mbappé is required to lead the line, Tuchel could deploy Ángel di María on the right and Julian Draxler on the left of the 19-year-old, but the patching up job extends further than just the attack. Verratti played nearly an hour before being substituted by Leandro Paredes.

But Dani Alves may be needed in defence now, after Thomas Meunier suffered a concussion during a Ligue 1 clash against Bordeaux.

Mid-table Bordeaux slumped to a fourth straight loss between league and cup, although they almost equalised on the hour when Francois Kamano's shot from 20 yards was superbly saved by Gianluigi Buffon.
