Manchester United currently sit top of Champions League Group H, and could secure their qualification to the knockout rounds with a win against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday. United beat the Ligue 1 side in the reverse fixture, but with RB Leipzig likely to win the group’s earlier match against Istanbul Basaksehir, PSG will be desperate to avoid another defeat that could send them spiralling out of the competition.
United received good fitness news this week, as a number of players that missed out over the weekend are now back in contention. Anthony Martial has apparently recovered from illness, and both Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay were pictured in training on Tuesday. Whether any of them will go straight into the starting lineup is another story, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at least has options in midfield and attack. At the back, the pickings are a little slimmer — Luke Shaw remains out with injury, and Axel Tuanzebe (who was excellent in Paris) is serving a one-match suspension. If Solskjaer does opt to line up with a back 3, it may be that McTominay or Nemanja Matić are asked to drop deeper.
