We will still attack without Neymar and Cavani, says PSG’s Thomas Tuchel

Manchester United have won 10 of their 11 games under the Norwegian and continued their fine form with a 3-0 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

PSG: No Neymar makes things incredibly tough, but when you considered that Cavani may also miss the match due to injury, you have to wonder if the scales are even balanced in this tie.

"Of course, we will miss the likes of Neymar and Edinson in attack", said Tuchel at his prematch press conference.

Martial had been linked with a move away from the club while Mourinho was in charge but signed a new five-year deal last month and appears to be one of the players most enjoying the change in management. "We're here to score, maybe more than one". Obviously we're missing a couple of key players, but I don't know if it's the right time to change our ID.

Thomas Tuchel insists Kylian Mbappe can not be expected to fill the roles of Neymar and Edinson Cavani when Paris Saint-Germain face Manchester United.

Sarri: Higuain keen to prove himself again
Sarri says he meets Guardiola socially in the off-season, alongside Arrigo Sacchi, the former AC Milan boss. They speak the same language with the ball, and so I think Gonzalo will be very important for us for this.

"We can not forget we have a second leg in Paris so it is not all in or nothing tomorrow", said the German global. "It wasn't the best period of my career, or they didn't let me have my best time there", Di Maria said in a recent interview with radio station France Bleu.

"Going into this game [with PSG] I don't think we could be in a better frame of mind with confidence and form so we are really looking forward to the next few games coming up".

" To change that is really hard but I'm sure there will be times where we will defend deeply". I want the players, when they come on the pitch, to see that big writing - believe. It is necessary to have these backup ideas in mind and I can think of several in advance. My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to feature in Manchester. Neymar, the world's most expensive player, has a foot problem, Cavani a hip injury.

"Obviously, there is an effect", the former Borussia Dortmund boss said.

"I think in my opinion he's always unsafe offensively with Martial, they're a very risky pairing". "I say thank you for all the emotion that the Champions League has given me".
