    Big game and one I’m looking forward to after a long time ;I hear Cavani got injured today thigh,along with neymar that leaves Mbappe as the main man. I feel We won’t get a better opportunity to win this over two legs.

    Cavani taken off at half time, Tuchel didn’t seem optimistic but he wasn’t too sure either way at the same time so who knows.
    Our cause is certainly helped with the lack of Neymar and Cavani. Mbappe on his own is still a worry. They don’t need to include Neymar in the build up now, just over the top or clever through balls to him now and boom, he’s away. They could be even more direct with Mbappe on his own than with the other two.
    We should be targeting Thiago Silva on their side. He’s 34 now and he’s no Maldini to keep going to 40.
    It’s still an iffy tie imho

    Luke Shaw had a very good game yesterday, admittedly against shit opposition – let’s hope he can keep Mbappe quiet!
    Similarly their defence won’t be looking forward to Rashford, Martial, Pogba and JLingz running at them.
    Fancy us for a 2-1 win in Paris and a 2-0 win at OT.
    I’m in Abu Dhabi so will have to stay up till midnight to watch it!

    Would have preferred Neymar to play, in huge games for PSG he tries being the big fish and acts like a show pony, as seen during the world cup. It often has an adverse affect on the team, am glad Cavanin isn’t playing. He just fucking runs like a madman, never lets your defense rest, I reckon we will do it.

    One day before the game, a new run of tests are on the cards.

    Huge test of Ole’s credentials this. When he took over I questioned how it would be possible for him to have a better chance of winning this game than Mourinho. But, 11 games later, it’s safe to say we have a much better chance of beating PSG now with Ole than we did with Jose.
    That’s quite incredible.

    Not just a huge test for Ole but the players. They have been rightly praised in recent weeks and now it’s up to them to show how good they are. I suspect we’ll go with Martial and Rashford up top with Lingard as a false nine where he’ll be instructed to stay close to Verratti when we defend and try to disrupt his passing game. Herrera will also play a key role in helping the defense deal with Mbappe and try to get him riled up. With Cavani and Neymar out, PSG will constantly look for Mbappe but Di Maria will be eager to impress as well. Ex-United players usually get a warm welcome but I wouldn’t give Di Maria the time of the day. There have been many worse than him but no one as disinterested.

    Agreed Roygbiv – wonder if this is the game we finally see the players looking at each other in disbelief as we’re carved open again and again? Hope not! Although the likes of Lindelof, Herrera and Matic have come a long way in recent weeks, hope they stand the test of a top quality European side.
    Feels like a game made for Pogba…

    It’s been a long time since we played a very good side during the knockout stages. Hopefully we put in a decent performance and score a few goals.

    Big game big night based on the recent results I have to be optimistic but having said that we lack quality in some crucial areas and I hope we don’t get exposed.

    Weird game to call, can see us losing 1-3 or the likes of Pogba and Rashford step up and we score a few goals. Win the game 3-0!
    Weird.

    Even with Neymar and Cavani out it’s a big test. Did I read somewhere Veratti is out too? Or was that imagined in hope? Mbappe on his own can destroy teams, we’ll defend deeper than normal to nullify his pace which will not make life easy on us. Having said that we have pace in abundance with Martial, Rashford and Lingard. Sanchez is also quick, it could be a good game for him if he gets a chance even though he probably doesn’t deserve it. As I said before it’s an iffy tie. A goal either way will decide it and DDG will have to be on top form too. It’ll 2-1 or 1-0 but not sure who will win.

    Alexis deserve a chance, but from the bench, not starting
    I’d go:
    Young, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw
    Herrera, Matic, Pogba
    Lingard, Rashford, Martial

    Predicting 3-1 win for United

    #1725878

    I think it will be 1-1 or, if we’re lucky, 2-1 to us.

    I think it will be 1-0 to us. A tight careful game, we will not want to concede away goals but being at home (along with the Ole Factor) will give us that one break to score.

    Don’t think Bailly is reliable enough to start for us tonight. Would be Lindelof and Smalling for me Homerjay. Or Jones if Smalling isn’t fit enough.
    Sure we’ll score a couple of goals mac, I’d say 2-0 if it all goes well.

    @happy, you are probably right. If Cavani was available I’d have said Smalling but I think we’ll need the pace of Bailly at the back. Was tempted to go for the legs of Dalot also but Ole will definately go with the experience of Young who was rested at the weekend

    Yeah I spose his pace would be an asset tonight, Homerjay, given Mbappe will be running at us.
    Hmmmm, gonna be interesting…
