Champions League: Cavani injured ahead of PSG's trip to play Manchester United

Solskjaer has masterminded 10 wins from his first 11 games, with PSG arriving at Old Trafford on Tuesday night in the midst of an injury crisis.

With Edinson Cavani picking up an injury against Bordeaux, the FC panel examine how PSG would line up if he's ruled out against Manchester United.

However, after the game, Thomas Tuchel admitted that the 31-year-old suffered a muscle injury, though the severity is something that is unknown at the current time. We have to improve mentally and in our attitude, to have more of a spirit of sacrifice for the team, ' said the Italian stopper.

With Neymar already ruled out of both matches, Edison Cavani joins him on the sidelines. "It can be anywhere from three to six weeks", is what is being reported in "L'Equipe".

"It is too much".

Here, Sports Mole selects its strongest combined XI, using only players available for Tuesday's match. We are no longer looking at Plan B, but Plan D!

"If he comes off, obviously I am anxious. But we will be ready on Tuesday".

The Ligue 1 side are top of the table in France, but they are not at the peak of their powers at the moment, struggling for form with star player Neymar out injured.

It's unclear if he will be able to play, but at this point it doesn't seem overly likely. "For the big games in the Champions League, it is absolutely necessary to have key players with a lot of experience". January signing Leandro Paredes could start alongside Marco Verratti in central midfield whilst former Stoke man Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting could partner Mbappe up front. He clashed heads with Bordeaux's Francois Kamano when they contested a header on Saturday.

European hopefuls Strasbourg lost 2-1 at home to Angers on Saturday, while Amiens beat Caen 1-0 to climb above Monaco and out of the relegation zone.
