United trio set to return for PSG clash
Manchester United will welcome back Marcus Rashford, Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard against Paris Saint-Germain this evening.
The Reds trio were all benched for the 3-0 victory at Fulham at the weekend as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had one eye on tonight’s Champions League Round of 16 first leg tie.
United got an injury boost after Victor Lindelof returned to training on Monday, with Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian the only absentees with minor knocks.
Whoever takes to the field Solskjaer believes United could not be in better shape.
‘We’ve given ourselves the best possible opportunity because of the way we’ve come into this game,’ Solskjaer said.
‘We’re confident and we’re looking like a team.
If there was ever a time to go into big games, it’s now.
‘ While United are pretty much at full strength, the same cannot be said of the Parisians who are missing three key players in the form of Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier.
However, Solskjaer says the players that step in will be no mugs.
‘Of course any team that is missing players like Neymar, Cavani and Meunier will feel the affect,’ Solskjaer added.
‘But it gives other players a chance and maybe they are more unpredictable for us with who they are going to play.
‘When you’ve seen that front three for the whole season you know what to expect but this time around we’re guessing a little bit.’
