PSG in need of new faces as revived United loom

Paris: Paris Saint-Germain were seen as heavy favourites to beat Manchester United when the sides were drawn together in the last 16 of the Champions League less than a month ago, but fans of the French giants may not be so confident right now.

While United fired Jose Mourinho in the wake of that draw and have since enjoyed a resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, PSG have stuttered either side of the French winter break.

Wednesday’s shock 2-1 home defeat against Guingamp in the League Cup quarter-finals does not mean Thomas Tuchel’s team are suddenly in crisis, but it has raised certain doubts.

Tuchel is further hampered by Adrien Rabiot being frozen out by the club over his refusal to sign a new contract.

Veteran Lassana Diarra is also likely to leave, and in the meantime defender Marquinhos may continue to be played out of position in the middle of the pitch, as he did successfully in November’s 2-1 home win over Liverpool.

Tuchel’s team are at Amiens on Saturday, while the standout Ligue 1 fixture sees crisis-hit Marseille host Monaco.

The principality side are fresh from beating Rennes on penalties in the League Cup quarter-finals and coach Thierry Henry is hoping to confirm the signing of Cesc Fabregas in the coming days.
