Predicted Man United line-up to face PSG in the Champions League

Manchester United will welcome Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League last-16 first leg at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

The Red Devils have been in brilliant form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, winning 10 of 11 games in all competitions. Solskjaer’s men flexed their muscles ahead of the Champions League game with a 3-0 victory over relegation-threatened Fulham at the weekend.

And Manchester United will now be extremely confident of beating PSG over both the legs and advance to the quarter-finals of the competition.

Team News

Marcos Rojo and Antonio Valencia are the only players to miss the game against PSG.

Probable Manchester United XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

David De Gea (GK)

De Gea has been in brilliant form between the sticks of late and is an undoubted starter against PSG.

Ashley Young (RB)

Young is an attacking full-back who loves to go forward and contribute to the team’s endeavours in the attack.

Victor Lindelof

Victor Lindelof (CB)

Lindelof is playing at the top of his game at the moment and should start on Tuesday.

Eric Bailly (CB)

Partnering Lindelof in central defence should be Bailly, who will look to impress his manager on the night.

Luke Shaw (LB)

Shaw has established himself as a regular starter in the Manchester United XI. He is expected to keep his place at left-back.

Nemanja Matic (CM)

Matic has been playing at a level above usual under Solskjaer and deserves to start against the French giants.

Ander Herrera

Ander Herrera (CM)

The Reds are now able to dictate the tempo of the game more from the midfield and that’s purely down to the Herrera-Matic partnership. The Spaniard has become a crucial cog in Solskjaer’s system, bringing plenty of energy and bite to the midfield.

Anthony Martial (LW)

When in full flow, Martial is one of the devastating players to come up against for any defender.

Paul Pogba (CAM)

Pogba is enjoying life under Solskjaer, assisting and scoring goals and most importantly, playing with a lot of freedom. The Frenchman will look to deliver on the big night to help Manchester United take a solid first-leg advantage.

Jesse Lingard (RW)

Lingard will look to give a tough time to the PSG defenders with his movement and link-up play.
