PSG striker Cavani could miss Man Utd first leg

2:55                                            Highlights from Manchester United's 3-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League

Uruguay striker Cavani, who has scored 192 goals for PSG, sustained a hip muscle injury in Saturday's 1-0 Ligue 1 victory over Girondins de Bordeaux adding to the side's injury woes ahead of the last-16 first leg.

United's cause has been aided by untimely injuries to PSG attacking stars Neymar and Edinson Cavani, with both men expected to miss out on a European trip to England.

"We have our identity as a team and it's not easy to change a team's identity".

"I was asking him some things about Man United, but I won't tell you what he said - it was nothing bad!" "We are PSG, we are used to playing offensively and creating chances", he said.

Tuchel also dismissed the notion that Kylian Mbappe must step up without Neymar and Cavani and tried to temper the expectations around the France worldwide. "That said, we are here to score - that is clear". Obviously we're missing a couple of key players, but I don't know if it's the right time to change our ID.

"We can not forget we have a second leg in Paris so it is not all in or nothing tomorrow", said the German worldwide.

And speaking after the game, Tuchel said: "If he [Cavani] comes off, obviously I am anxious".

"Going into this game [with PSG] I don't think we could be in a better frame of mind with confidence and form so we are really looking forward to the next few games coming up".

Draxler is unsure if he will start but feels ready for whatever role Tuchel might have in mind for him and does not see himself as a Neymar replacement.

The Red Devils return to European action for the first time under caretaker boss Ole Gunner Solskjaer, who is yet to taste defeat at the helm of the Old Trafford Club. So it makes them more unpredictable, but we've got a good guesstimate of how they're preparing for the game.

Ole's at the wheel, and nobody - not even Mauricio Pochettino - looks like a better candidate at this moment in time. It is necessary to have these backup ideas in mind and I can think of several in advance.

"This makes you understand how odd it is and how certain balances can swap around in the Champions League".
