Mbappe < Neymar + Cavani: Tuchel takes pressure of Kylian

Paris Saint-Germain's injury woes deepen as key defender is ruled out

French World Cup victor Paul Pogba and striker Marcus Rashford have led the way and Tuchel believes the handicap facing PSG at Old Trafford for Tuesday night's first leg is the equivalent of United losing both players.

Interim Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says it is "too simple" to suggest he will get the job on a permanent basis with wins over Paris St-Germain and Liverpool.

The Champions League round of 16 kicks off on Tuesday with a big one from "The Theatre of Dreams" as red-hot Manchester United hosts a banged-up Paris Saint-Germain squad without Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

"Of course, we will miss the likes of Neymar and Edinson in attack", said Tuchel at his prematch press conference. We will have to race each other to clinch the qualification. "Perhaps it is easier for us to play this style of football compared to the previous style of football we were asked to play". "We are trying to pay him back in kind and things are working out well at the moment".

'We will need him without Cavani and Neymar. Our players are more than capable. Martial's superb solo goal in the 3-0 victory was his 11th of the campaign and evoked memories of Ronaldo's victor over Fulham in 2007.

"Well I don't think there's any surprise about Paul Pogba being a key player, he's an incredible player", the PSG boss said. It promises to the biggest test yet of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly's renaissance.

Tuchel is particularly wary of the threat posed by Pogba and Anthony Martial, who between them scored all three goals in United's 3-0 Premier League victory over Fulham on Saturday. In December when the draw took place, this looked like an advantageous tie for PSG as United was struggling under Jose Mourinho.

Do you think Pogba will be key for United on Tuesday night?

This leaves World Cup-winning forward Kylian Mbappe - who replaced Cavani at the weekend - as the only fit member of their first-choice front three. "It wasn't the best period of my career, or they didn't let me have my best time there", Di Maria said in a recent interview with radio station France Bleu.
