Cavani opened the scoring for the French champions after 42 minutes on Saturday by converting from the spot at Parc des Princes.

The Uruguay global was one of few PSG stars to start the match, as Tuchel kept the likes of Leandro Paredes and Kylian Mbappe in reserve ahead of the last-16 first leg at Old Trafford. "It's not the big muscle, but a muscle is affected anyway". In any case, we must wait.

"Marco's new issue is something else (not the same ankle), but I do not really know much more".

"If he comes off, obviously I am anxious. It is definitely not a good sign".

Les Parisiens are already without Neymar following a recurrence of his foot injury and it appears that he could be joined by Cavani, who suffered a thigh problem right before the close of half-time.

But Clarke required emergency assistance towards the end of the game and received oxygen before being taken away on a stretcher. Leeds winger Jack Clarke has been taken to hospital after falling ill during Saturday's 1-1 draw against Middlesbrough.

Cavani's fellow forward Neymar has already been ruled out of the United games with a broken metatarsal.

The win over Bordeaux put PSG 13 points clear at the top of Ligue 1, but comes after the toughest spell of their season. We have to analyse Manchester United, we have to stay calm and confident. We must wait for the results. We don't have another Edi like we don't have another Neymar'.

"Obviously, we are very happy Marco is back with us", Tuchel added. After he left the pitch, it was more hard for us to control the game. "If we are missing lots of key players, it's an even bigger challenge, but we will be ready on Tuesday, I think".

With Cavani now a doubt for Tuesday's clash at Old Trafford, a tie that looked rather favourable to PSG at the time of the draw now promises to be extremely challenging, with United in fine form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho on the United bench.
