Verratti and Cavani could miss PSG's Man United trip suggests Tuchel

Manchester United are now gearing up for their biggest test under Solskjaer, with the Red Devils set to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 of the Champions League at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. "He has to play his game, to play with confidence and I want us to be capable to help him with the right kind of support, good passes".

The departure of Mourinho from the United dugout in December saw him slip down the pecking order under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and he was allowed to link up with Chinese outfit Shandong Luneng during the winter window.

His manager that year, Louis van Gaal, had hailed Di Maria as "world class" on his arrival, but their relationship quickly turned sour, with the player blaming the Dutchman for playing him out of position. This team is no longer a big underdog against PSG.

He said: 'They have got some great players at Man United, especially in midfield, with Pogba and [Nemanja] Matic. It's an impressive run.

In contrast, PSG will be without the injured Neymar for both legs of the tie, while Edinson Cavani is set to miss Tuesday's game at Old Trafford after picking up a hip problem at the weekend.

After qualifying top of a group that also included Liverpool and Napoli, the Ligue 1 champions were dealt a tough hand in the first knockout stage when drawn against United, albeit much has changed since the teams were paired together at the end of past year. Things have completely changed [since the draw].

Tuchel says he expects his side to "suffer" at times at Old Trafford and admits an in-form Paul Pogba will be one of United's key threats.

Speaking to Telefoot, Fellaini said during a yes or no quiz: "Could I have signed for PSG last summer? Yes".

"It's going to be a tough challenge because you can see that the squad is full of energy and confidence". "He is an incredible player, wonderful qualities". He is extremely strong with the ball at his feet. It wasn't the best period of my career, or they didn't let me have my best time there.
