Confident United will be a tough challenge - Tuchel

Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani will miss the Champions League match against Manchester United on Tuesday after damaging a tendon in his right hip.

France star Mbappe is therefore likely to be PSG's main hope of ensuring they leave England with at least an away goal to take back to Parc des Princes for the second leg on March 6.

"Was it Thomas Tuchel who did not want me to come? No".

"There's no point putting pressure on Mbappe", he told a news conference on Monday.

"It's not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar, and he can't do all three things at the same time", said Tuchel.

"Kylian needs to be free to play with confidence".

"I want us to play with courage, play as a team, together, tight knit, fight, ready to suffer. He's here to grow and this is the ideal moment for that". In France, you can not speak bad things about PSG because they are a fantastic team. I'll try to put in a great performance'. Will they miss [Marcus] Rashford? "Of course they would", said Tuchel.

"You can not replace quality players like this". My feeling is that it will be very hard for him to feature in Manchester.

Meanwhile, Solskjaer's side go into the clash in excellent form with 10 wins and one draw in his 11 games since taking over from Jose Mourinho as manager.

He said: "I was watching it with Noah and we said, "Wow, that is a tough challenge". "He's an incredible player with wonderful qualities". We're confident and we're looking like a team. "We play attacking football - it's in our DNA", he said.

"In any case, we must wait a bit more as the exams are still ongoing". There will be moments when we'll defend because I expect a very attacking Manchester, very fearless, with many attacking players. I think that the news will not be very good. I just think it's sensible to reflect over a three or four-month period. "Of course they will, you can not replace quality players like this, Neymar is one of the key players in Europe and we miss him a lot and now we miss a second key player with Edinson".

"In these types of big matches, it is the small details that make the difference".
