Manchester United could be without six first-team stars for PSG

According to MEN, Manchester United could be without six first-team stars for their crunch Champions League clash against PSG.

A point on the night will see the Red Devils qualify for the last 16. PSG however need will three to boost their chances.

The French giants are our biggest competitors in the group and are a formidable team on their day. United go into the match with good morale after the comeback against Southampton.

The win against the Saints did however come at a cost. Starting goalkeeper David de Gea was forced off at half-time, while Alex Telles too came off with a knock.

“David: I don’t know how he’ll react to his knock and bang. Alex had an issue towards the end but hopefully won’t be too bad.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains hopeful that Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay can return to training ahead of the clash against PSG.

“Paul and Scott hopefully can start training with us tomorrow.”

Anthony Martial is suffering from an illness

Another player who is facing a potential absence is Anthony Martial. The Frenchman fell ill overnight and had to stay at the hotel, nursing the injury he picked up prior to the international break.

United will however welcome Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones back to full fitness. The return of both players is, however, of little joy, at least as far as the match against PSG is concerned. While the former is at best a squad player, the latter is ineligible for the competition.

A potential win against the French giants will see us do the double over them this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defeated the French champions twice in three meetings as United boss.

The lone loss came in a 2-0 loss at Old Trafford. Hopefully, we can reverse that result this time around.
