The Champions League round of 16 kicks off on Tuesday with a big one from "The Theatre of Dreams" as red-hot Manchester United hosts a banged-up Paris Saint-Germain squad without Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

United were drawn against PSG in their round-of-16 tie only the day before Mourinho was sacked in the wake of a dismal 3-1 defeat by Liverpool that left them 11 points adrift of the Premier League's top four.

United made a loss when they sold Di Maria for 63 million euros (£44.3 million at the time), but it was very much PSG's gain.

Meanwhile, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has highlighted the threat Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial pose to his side ahead of their clash at Old Trafford. "We are PSG, we are used to playing offensively and creating chances", he said.

"He has to play freely". I want for us to be able to help him by finding him with good passes.

"Kylian is here to grow and this is the flawless moment for that". In France, you can not speak bad things about PSG because they are a fantastic team.

"Let me put it another way: will Manchester United miss [Paul] Pogba, if he was not there? They will both be missed, but we should not dwell on our absentees - we must focus".

Neville says it's not just the results that have improved under Solskjaer, but performances too.

"You can not replace quality players like this". It's an impressive run they're on and to play in this moment in Old Trafford is one of the toughest challenges you can have.

"Well I don't think there's any surprise about Paul Pogba being a key player, he's an incredible player", he said, according to Manchester Evening News. "He's an incredible player with wonderful qualities".

However, Tuchel intends to set his team up to attack United and hopes to score at least once.

"I have found out what kind of team we have, we are looking like a team, we are agreeing on how we should approach games".

"Of course, we will miss the likes of Neymar and Edinson in attack", said Tuchel at his prematch press conference.

"I imagine United will be bold and we'll have to be at our best level".

"I'd love to have a good answer but I'm not sure it's on me to talk about the situation".

The Belgium global found himself heading towards the free agent pool 18 months ago as his contract at Old Trafford ran down.
