Manchester United are without several key players for the Champions League clash with PSG this evening.
Harry Maguire, Edinson Cavani, Eric Bailly and Mason Greenwood are all out of the match with the French champions.
“We are a little bit depleted but we have more than enough players,” said manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who confirmed midfielder Bruno Fernandes will captain the side in the French capital.
“We hope the players won’t be away for too long. Edinson needs a few more days’ training. Maybe we can think about the weekend.
“Hopefully Harry, Eric and Mason as well, but we’re not sure about that.”
Fernandes will skipper the side for the first time and was surprised when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer announced it in his pre-match press conference.
He said: “My reaction was funny because I wasn’t expecting to be the captain [on Tuesday] of course.
“I found out in the press conference and it was funny because I wasn’t expecting that but I’m really happy.
“You will have the armband but you need to be just the same and the leadership needs to be the same as before.
“I think everyone has his own way to be a leader and this [game] will be the same for me and the others. It will just be that I will have the armband on my arm.”
