Mauricio Pochettino gives updates on Mbappe’s fitness ahead Man City clash

Manchester City vs PSG LIVE: Mbappe injury latest, squad news and predicted lineup

Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino hopes to have Kylian Mbappe available for the first leg of his side’s Champions League semi-final with Manchester City on Wednesday.

The 22-year-old indented up a brace in league activity against Metz before limping off on the 87-minute mark, speaking fears that he may not be prepared for the visit of Pep Guardiola’s men.

In any case, Pochettino made light of fears of a genuine physical issue for the striker following the game, and the PSG manager has reaffirmed that he is “not worried” about his condition.

Speaking to Canal +, Pochettino said: “We think he’s okay and that he’ll be ready for Wednesday. We reviewed the action, we see the blow. We are not worried about him.”

“We hope it’s not too serious. Kylian was calm when he was replaced but even a simple knock is always painful.”

Mbappe took his league tally to 25 goals for the season against Metz before having to come off, and he has found the back of the net eight times in nine Champions League games so far this term.

PSG will definitely be without Juan Bernat on Wednesday night, but the trio of Marquinhos, Abdou Diallo and Rafinha could all return in time to bolster Pochettino’s options.
