How Man Utd could line-up against PSG with Edinson Cavani available to make debut with Telles and van de Beek to start

MANCHESTER UNITED take on Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night in the French capital as they begin their Champions League campaign.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will likely have one eye on Saturday's huge Premier League clash with Chelsea.

But the Man Utd chief will send out his best available XI to take on the reigning Ligue 1 champions at the Parc des Princes.

And that could mean a debut for Edinson Cavani, who has finally completed his period of self-isolation following his deadline-day transfer.

The Uruguayan legend, 33, left PSG on a free earlier in the summer and could well play his first competitive game for his new club against his old pals.

However, Anthony Martial is free to play having been suspended for the 4-1 win over Newcastle after his scuffle with Erik Lamela in the 6-1 drubbing by Tottenham a fortnight earlier.

Solskjaer could opt to start Cavani up front with one of Martial or Marcus Rashford on the left-wing.

Alternatively, Martial could start up front, with Rashford on the left and Cavani coming off the bench.

Mason Greenwood will be hoping to be fit enough to reclaim his spot on the right-wing.

The England youngster was not fit to play against Newcastle, according to Solskjaer – with Juan Mata starting in his role.

Should Greenwood remain unfit, Daniel James would likely start on the right, having played on the opposite flank against Newcastle.

In midfield, Donny van de Beek is likely to start alongside Scott McTominay in the deeper midfield roles.

With Bruno Fernandes likely to continue in his favoured No10 role, that means Paul Pogba could be left on the bench yet again.

In goal, Dean Henderson could continue his new role as cup goalkeeper having played in all of United's Carabao Cup games so far this season.

Harry Maguire is once again likely to partner Victor Lindelof in the heart of defence, keeping Eric Bailly out of the side.

Alex Telles could replace Luke Shaw to make his Man Utd debut, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the right-back spot.

Man Utd take on PSG on Tuesday October 20 at the Parc des Princes, with kick-off 8pm.
