Edinson Cavani reacts at Parc des Princes

We're confident and we're looking like a team. It's our DNA and changing that is hard.

"Without Neymar and possibly Cavani and [Marco] Verratti, we will have to think of a Plan D", Tuchel said after Saturday's game at the Parc des Princes.

" To change that is really hard but I'm sure there will be times where we will defend deeply".

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. "He has his own qualities, but it is not his job to do what they do".

"We were in extremely good shape when we ended our campaign in the group stage, then there was the draw and things have completely changed".

"Kylian is here to grow and this is the flawless moment for that".

"There are still a few months left of this season to do whatever I can for the club", said Solskjaer. "I sent a message to Edi after the Bordeaux match".

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.

PSG: No Neymar makes things incredibly tough, but when you considered that Cavani may also miss the match due to injury, you have to wonder if the scales are even balanced in this tie. "I want to put in a good performance, though, and I believe that I can".

The Argentina global was sold to PSG the following summer for around £44million after scoring three goals and registering 11 assists in the Premier League.

"It is hard to compare eliminations", he said. It will be different again this time as it is not the same team, nor the same situation.

After qualifying top of a group that also included Liverpool and Napoli, the Ligue 1 champions were dealt a tough hand in the first knockout stage when drawn against United, albeit much has changed since the teams were paired together at the end of previous year. So I want my players to go into this game confident and embrace it.
