Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has this afternoon provided a final injury update on his squad ahead of the Red Devils’ crunch clash with Paris Saint-Germain.
Man United vs PSG
United are set to welcome French champions PSG to Old Trafford tomorrow night, in the first-leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
The Red Devils head into proceedings brimming with confidence, on the back of a scintillating run of form of late.
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment at the club at the end of December, the Manchester giants have racked up 10 wins from 11 outings across all competitions, the latest of which saw United put Fulham to the sword by 3 goals to nil on Saturday afternoon.
– 11 Games
– 10 Wins
– 25 Points (in 9 games – Mourinho 26 points all season)
– 28 goals scored
– Only 7 goals conceded
– 5 clean sheets
– Equal best start to Premier League management.
– Best EVER start for a United manager.

‘A big, strong and healthy squad’
And in further positive news for the Red Devils this afternoon, Solskjaer has confirmed that, aside from a pair of defensive injury problems, he will have a fully-fit squad available to choose from when his high-flying outfit welcome PSG to Manchester tomorrow night:
Speaking to MUTV, the Norwegian tactician revealed:
We’re missing Antonio [Valencia] and Matteo [Darmian] – they’re the two that are not available.
It’s a big, strong and healthy squad which is always [good] when the big games come up – many to pick from.
PSG’s injury woes
PSG, on the other hand, are set to head to Old Trafford with major injury concerns.
World’s most-expensive player Neymar has been ruled out of action until April, while problems picked up by both Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier during the capital giants’ victory over Bordeaux on Saturday look set to present Thomas Tuchel with a tactical headache tomorrow night:
