Tuchel is in trouble. They have lots of players which are not available for their next clash with Nimes.

Tuchel

is worried that

PSG

might have only 11 available players to play their next game. Some players are out for injury, some are suspended and some are out because of coronavirus protocols.

The previous French champion will be looking to pick up yet another three points next weekend. However,

Tuchel

confirmed at his pre-match news conference on Thursday that a number of players are either definitely out of the match or are major doubts.

Marquinhos, Marco Verratti, Julian Draxler, Thilo Kehrer, Juan Bernat and Mauro Icardi are injured,

Angel Di Maria

and

Layvin Kurzawa

are banned, while

Ander Herrera

has contracted COVID-19.

"

Draxler

,

Verratti

and

Marquinhos

will not play against Nimes and are doubtful to face Manchester [in the

Champions League

]," Tuchel said.

"Herrera has been infected with COVID-19. Danilo has been in contact with Cristiano Ronaldo, so he cannot be with us. 

"Dagba was also in contact with

Maxence Caqueret

with the Under-21s - we will see today if he is still negative on the test so that he returns to the group. 

"

Kehrer

is still injured and will be absent for a few weeks. Bernat is also absent and finally

Icardi

was injured in training last Wednesday in the inner ligament of the knee. 

"It's not a big deal, but he won't be with us against Nimes and against Manchester United.

"We need an ambitious and courageous team for tomorrow. We want to attack and not take goals. We want to be ready for

Manchester United

"On the other side, we must be careful for those who have just returned from the international break like Mbappe and Neymar. Maybe we will only have 11, 12 or 13 players. 

"It will be a headache tomorrow but we want to push the team to win before facing

Manchester United

."
