PSG still plan to attack Manchester United despite Neymar, Cavani absences

PSG still plan to attack Manchester United despite Neymar, Cavani absences

Uruguay striker Cavani, who has scored 192 goals for PSG, sustained a hip muscle injury in Saturday's 1-0 Ligue 1 victory over Girondins de Bordeaux adding to the side's injury woes ahead of the last-16 first leg. Kylian has his own qualities, it is not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar. Obviously we're missing a couple of key players, but I don't know if it's the right time to change our ID.

Julian Draxler, who could also help to fill the void created by Neymar and Cavani, admitted that the South American pair will be missed, but wants his teammates to focus on themselves.

"There are still a few months left of this season to do whatever I can for the club", said Solskjaer. "But over the years I've been here I've been playing different roles, I did not have a problem because I think I have a good understanding of the game".

'He has wonderful qualities, he can do a lot of things, extremely strong, with the ball at his feet, he's very good and very strong in challenges and one on ones, taking people on he's always capable of making a difference and I think in my opinion he's always unsafe offensively with Martial, they're a very risky pairing. "I want to put in a good performance, though, and I believe that I can". "In my first season, we lost 6-1 to Barca and that was more painful than the loss to Real - that was deserved".

"We would love to have Neymar and Edinson, but we have to show that we can do it without them".


Di Maria played under Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford, and the Dutch boss chose to sell the 30-year-old after he failed to board a flight before a pre-season tour.

Marouane Fellaini's departure from Manchester United marked the end of a painful era for many United fans with the big Belgian coming to the club under former boss David Moyes.

"I have found out what kind of team we have, we are looking like a team, we are agreeing on how we should approach games".

"So, I think it's still going to be a great game".

PSG recovered from a loss away at Liverpool and a draw at home to Napoli to finish top of their group before being drawn against United in the last 16.
