PSG XI vs Man Utd ‘expected’ as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer learns who his players should face

Paris Saint-Germain are set to unleash their big guns on Manchester United when they get their Champions League campaign underway tonight.

In August, the French side were beaten by Bayern Munich in the Champions League final and manager Thomas Tuchel is once again under pressure to go one better.

Fortunately for the German coach, he possesses one of Europe’s best attacking trios in Angel di Maria, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.

Behind them, Tuchel is expected to play Idrissa Gueye, Danilo and former United midfielder Ander Herrera.

In defence, Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe will be flanked by Mitchel Bakker and Alessandro Florenzi.

Speaking ahead of the match, Tuchel said stopping Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes would be crucial.

“Pogba remains a key player who, with his talent, is one of the best midfielders in the world,” he told reporters.

“It is clear that we have to stop him, like Bruno Fernandes who makes a lot of assists.

Can Manchester United stop Kylian Mbappe?

“Pogba and Bruno Fernandes are key players in the middle. With Nemanja Matic, they’re very strong.

“They play with super-fast attackers, and for me they are one of the strongest teams in Europe in the attacking transitions.

“It will be necessary to stop them before the counterattacks.

“We want to take the ball, show our style and impose it, but we need to play with a good structure to evolve with a good counter-pressing and to prevent opposing counter-attacks, especially since they are also efficient on set pieces.

“These are key points on which it will be necessary to defend well.”
