Manchester United host PSG on Tuesday night in the first leg of their Champions League with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aiming to continue his flying start as manager.

Adding to their woes is the latest injury to striker Edinson Cavani, who was forced off the pitch at halftime after scoring from the spot against Bordeaux in PSG's Ligue 1 match. "Then, we will see", De Gea told Telefoot. He has undergone exams and there will be more tests here at the training centre.

The Red Devils return to European action for the first time under caretaker boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer, who is yet to taste defeat at the helm of the Old Trafford Club. "We're here to score, maybe more than one". The club will communicate on this a bit later. I'm sure there will be times tomorrow where we'll be defending deeply. I'm not the same type of player as Neymar and, clearly, we'll miss him. "For the big games in the Champions League, it is absolutely necessary to have key players with a lot of experience".

Both Neymar and Edinson Cavani are ruled out with injury so Kylian Mbappe could be supported by former United winger Angel Di Maria and ex-Stoke forward Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting in attack.

"Two months later, seeing what has happened with us and the developments at Manchester United, we are at the least on the same level now".

He said: "I only stayed [for] one year". If Edi is not there in Manchester, of course it is big. When we had to win, we went to get the result. We are no longer looking at Plan B, but Plan D! "I think it will be a very good game to watch". Well, if they weren't needed in midfield, where PSG are also down to the bear bones, having to play Dani Alves in an unfamiliar holding midfield role.

"With the confidence, they have at the moment, and how they play, I think they are favourites".

"Verratti can play and will play", said the German coach.

The Frenchman scored a brilliant solo goal in Saturday's 3-0 win at Fulham and believes the attacking freedom given to the players under Solskjaer is more conducive to getting the best from them than Mourinho's more conservative approach.
