Thomas Tuchel has named Marcus Rashford and Edinson Cavani as the two players who can cause problems for Manchester United against Paris Saint-Germain.

United host PSG on Wednesday night in the Champions League, knowing a win would see them through.

That’s the result they got in the reverse fixture, as Bruno Fernandes and Rashford scored in a 2-1 away win.

Ahead of their next meeting, Tuchel has praised the latter for his impact on and off the pitch. He thinks Rashford will be a danger man again.

“We value him very much when he plays in England and not Parc des Princes, honestly, because (him scoring against us) gets a little bit annoying,” Tuchel said.

“The guy is a very young adult who takes his responsibility on and off the pitch very impressively.

“I have met him as an opponent three times and every time I’ve met a calm and humble guy and a nice person, which is amazing. I like this mixture a lot.

“For me personally, the sporting side is clear. He’s a big threat with his speed, with his ability to score, with his determination and his finishing.



“He’s very precise, taking shots inside and outside of the box. He is super rapid on counter-attacks and strong in the air with headers.

“He’s had a big impact and it’s nice to see guys like him from the academy having such a big impact in a big, big club like United.”

Tuchel knows what to expect from Cavani

Another forward Tuchel is all too aware of the danger of is Cavani. The Uruguayan left PSG as their all-time top scorer to join United in the summer.

Cavani scored a match-winning brace against Southampton at the weekend. And his former boss is happy that he is now displaying his qualities in the Premier League.

However, having worked with the player before, Tuchel is hoping Cavani does not show what he is capable of against his former club.

“His determination is a rare characteristic for a striker of his quality – always ready to do everything for the team,” he said.

“He has a big physical impact, scoring comes very natural for him. He’s reliable 24/7. You can call him in the night and he’d be there to score and to defend.

“I’m happy for him personally that he could show this to all Man Utd fans in the last game against Southampton, where he was absolutely decisive for them.

“He does not need to show it tomorrow; we already know, so he can do a little pause! It’s not necessary to show us. If he plays, we must find answers for that.”
