Is it gonna be a hiding or is Ole gonna go on a run after Newcastle?

Its a huge test. We won't play expansively, but we're a threat on the counter. My worry is - games like this call for defensively solidity, and we don't have it.

Can't see us winning this but you never know. It's surely set up for Cavani to have a storming debut against the club that have let him go, though.

What are the chances he tries to play 5 across the back with Telles in at left back and Shaw making up the 3?

I can definitely see a back five. Ole often does that when he's parking the bus against big teams. But with our defense looking so shaky, throwing another formation into the mix might only confuse the players more.

Maguire, Cavani, Greenwood haven’t travelled.

Why? I know Maguire wasn't fully fit. Is Greenwood injured?

Greenwood and Maguire have knocks but are apparently 'hopeful' for the Chelsea game. Cavani only started training a couple of days ago after having to isolate.

Backs to the wall already then... D'oh!

Possible XI ?
3-4-1-2

De Gea
Tuanzebe
Lindelof
Shaw

Wan-Bissaka
McTominay (energy ahead of Matic's experience)
Pogba
Telles

Bruno Fernandes

Martial
Rashford

---What do you guys think?
(apologies for being away from the forum for so long - it's great that the site has been updated; looks really cool and it's still an important outlet to discuss and debate the state of the club - Cheers!)

Sometimes CL teams don't do their research and attack your weaknesses, they just play their game and expect it to work, especially big clubs.

Having said that PSG probably don't have to focus on isolating Lindelhoof to make him fuck up, he'll do that anyway. Likewise Shaw being out of position. Breaking behind Matic etc.

I just hope Ole leaves enough up front to pose a threat otherwise we'll invite them on to us and it will be a bloodbath.

Beek must be pretty fucked off that he still hasn’t started a single game.
