    Can't see Cavani not playing at some point if he's available. He knows too much about the opposition not to.

    No way he can be match fit after just 2 weeks of quarantine gym fitness.
    But should be good for a 20-25 min cameo, and like you, am certain he will have some influence on final result.

    Rashy took some heavy challenges against Newcastle. I think Martial will probably start as he speaks French fluently I hear

    I'd be shocked if we didn't revert to the side that lost to Spurs bar Lindelof for Bailly

    We can do well against them. Hope to see such lineup :

    De Gea
    AWB - Maguire - Lindelof - Shaw
    Fred - VDB - Bruno
    Mata - Martial - Rashford

    Cavani will definitely not be ready to start but hope he gets a nice cameo.

    Anything can happen regarding the result but hopefully a strong start to our CL campaign regarding performance.

    So a typical game of football then.
    That isn't a typical game, no. I mean as opposed to a solid tactical performance making it hard for PSG to play their game and controlling it well. We just won't do that under Ole, so the only chance we have is an Evra style screamer

    Wouldn’t be making 2 debuts certainly not Cavini who has not played for a long time.

    Fred and McT should start again, it be playing similar To Saturday but although he did well replace James with de Beek. And Mata not sure he should start even with his motm performance.

    Smalling absolutely bossed the last game in Paris. It really pisses me off that we sold him.

    Like they did last time?

    You're giving them far too much respect. Even with those 2 they struggle to win games in Ligue 1. Having a deep squad helps them out of trouble far more than just having Mbappe and Neymar
    You do realize that Neymar didn't play last time right?

    It'll be interesting to see who our UCL keeper is. Are we going to go with Dave for the league and Hendo for the cups?

    They are going to be so up for this, we'll either get smashed or you know what will happen again :lol:

    I would love for Mata to start again but I don't think he should, save him for the Chelsea game on Saturday as he needs the rest. Henderson needs to start and be our cup keeper, would love to see DVB and Telles start this too

    Henderson
    AWB Lindeloff Maguire Telles
    Mctominay
    Pogba DVB
    Bruno Martial Rashford

    I would go for it with an attacking line up. Stick Bruno on the left until Greenwood is back to match fitness, he is one guy that can play anywhere. DVB needs to start because his football intelligence is something we really lack.

    Ah okay, thought he was still under quarantine.
    He was cleared this morning and had his 1st practice with the team today. Needless to say he'll be a little short, that's why I think we might play with Gueye/Herrera/Rafinha in the midfield.

    I don't think we can afford to play with 3 attackers. I'd go with 5 at the back.

    De Gea
    AWB Lindelof Maguire Shaw Telles
    McT VDB
    Bruno
    Cav/Mar Rashford​

    No, I really hope we don't go with 5 in the back. Will be underwhelming to say the least. Just play with our best formation and hope for the best.

    PSG for all their spending over the years, don’t seem to have a well built squad.

    Ole goes with a 5 at the back pretty much every time we're against a team better than us or away against a team as good. So I'd guess:

    ------------------DDG
    Lindelof Maguire Shaw
    AWB - Pogba - Matic - Telles
    ------------------Bruno
    ------------Rashford-Martial

    Iirc, we did not play well and then won 4-0 against Newcastle and the way Mata-Kagawa played and combined was that we needed to build on. Then that never happened. I hope Ole realizes that he has a very good set of midfielders that have everything. And once again, the way we play with Mata, Bruno, Donny (somehow Fred) is what we need to do more because the whole team play much better with control and dangerous breakthrough.

    And no more that Matic Pogba combo please.

    Think we’ll go 5 at the back with Telles at LWB. Matić, Fred & Bruno with Martial and Rash up top.
    I have a feeling about this too. Get Shaw as LCB for his recovery pace, with Telles providing width at LWB.

    Midfield, any two of Matic, Fred and McTominay to provide a base for Bruno and a partnership of Rashford and Martial up top.

    This is how I would go at least. Greenwood, VDB, Cavani, Mata and Pogba on the bench. Some solid options there when you compare to last season.

    I'd prefer this one to be further into the season. I dont think we are settled yet.

    I think we will get beat but then again we are capable of beating them if the majority of our 11 put in a good performance. Just hoping it doesn't turn ugly for us.

    Away match of a CL group stage against a top team, and current CL finalist. Keep the defensive unit tight and play on the counter. Both these teams know each other well for a variety of reasons, but happy to get the group stage off with any positive result.
