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