United are in the driving seat as they look to claim a double over PSG, following on from previous success over the Parisians, with RB Leipzig also very much in the mix for qualification from Group H.
Solskjaer went 3-5-2 in the reverse fixture and it worked a charm as the extra protection helped stifle space for Neymar and Angel Di Maria out wide.
However, Luke Shaw and Axel Tuanzebe are unavailable and so Solskjaer is expected to revert to a back four here. Eric Bailly is rated doubtful and the likes of Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo were left out of United’s Champions League squad, so Solskjaer lacks the numbers to field that system here.
David De Gea may be replaced in goal after being forced off at half-time this weekend too and United’s selection problems don’t end there.
Alex Telles and Donny van de Beek both picked up knocks against the Saints and will need assessing before this clash, while Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay and Anthony Martial are all doubts as well.
Over 2.5 Goals
The absence of Pogba may be a blessing in disguise, with the French World Cup winner only playing eight minutes across their last four matches as they won them all.
However, Edinson Cavani will be desperate to face his former club following his weekend performance and along with Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes, United will certainly carry a goal threat.
They’ve bagged 11 goals across their current winning run, though with just one clean sheet in six now (against West Brom) there should be chances for both sides here.
PSG certainly pack the necessary weaponry with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria all expected to feature. They’ve found the net in all three of their recent encounters with Man Utd and although both teams to score is understandably on the short side, there could be value backing goals.
The last two head to heads each featured a minimum of three strikes, while four of Man Ut’s last five outings have now breached that threshold, with four goals or more in three of their past four.
Moreover, nine of PSG’s last 11 since start of October have seen Over 2.5 Goals land, with at least four goals in five of these, and given the group standings the visitors aren’t going to be content settling for a mere point here.
Man United Draw No Bet
However, Thomas Tuchel isn’t without selection problems of his own. Presnel Kimpembe and Idrissa Gueye can return after sitting out matchday four through suspension, though key midfielder Marco Verratti has only just returned from injury and will be hard pushed to last the 90 minutes.
Juan Bernat, Julian Draxler and Thilo Kehrer all remain sidelined, and with PSG just W2-D1-L2 over their past five outings, and showing greater vulnerability this term with three defeats in Ligue 1 already, their hosts look more appetizing to get something from this encounter at the prices.
