Manchester United will clash heads with Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Wednesday night hoping to secure all three points and secure qualification into the round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. The Red Devils managed to pull off a memorable 3-2 comeback win away at Southampton last weekend. Therefore, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will be quietly confident about picking up another victory over PSG in midweek.

The Mancunian giants will set themselves up in a 4-3-1-2 formation with Dean Henderson and Edinson Cavani both expected to start versus Thoman Tuchel’s side. However, both David De Gea and Alex Telles are likely to miss out after they got injured against the Saints last weekend.

Defence

Dean Henderson will operate in between the sticks for the Red Devils in the injury absence of De Gea. Harry Maguire will once again play alongside Victor Lindelof at the centre of the Man United backline as they try to stop Kylian Mbappe and Neymar from finding the back of the net during the 90 minutes.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka will continue to feature at right-back while Brandon Williams comes in to fill in on the other side as the left-back. As mentioned earlier, Telles picked up a knock which could rule him out of this European encounter in midweek.

Midfield

Solskjaer might opt to go with a diamond in midfield with Nemanja Matic sitting as a deep-lying holding midfielder while both Donny van de Beek and Fred look to create some inviting goal-scoring chances in the opposition half. Bruno Fernandes will once again function in the number ten position as he carries most of the creative workload for his team.

Juan Mata and Daniel James will make up the numbers on the Man United bench as they wait for their opportunity to impress as the impact substitutes if Solskjaer decides to use their services.

Attack

Edinson Cavani produced a match-winning display off the bench last weekend. Hence, he would be a guaranteed starter along with Marcus Rashford up top. The Uruguayan striker will be quite motivated to prove his worth against his old team by getting his name on the scoresheet at the Theatre of Dreams in midweek.

Cavani’s inclusion could mean that Mason Greenwood will drop to the Red Devils bench. However, he might come on to make an impact in the latter stages of the game if required.
