Pochettino gives Mbappé injury update ahead of Man City-PSG

The Argentine coach spoke ahead of tomorrow's Champions League game and was hopeful that the French striker would be available for the huge task faced.

Paris Saint-Germain face a massive game on Tuesday evening against Manchester City, one that could arguably define their season.

The Parisians are playing for their survival in the Champions League after losing the home leg 1-2 and manager Mauricio Pochettino spoke to the media with the big question focused on the availability of star man, Kylian Mbappé who is carrying a knock.

Pochettino last minute decision on Mbappé

"We have to assess Kylian," Pochettino said on Monday. "Today he's going to start individual training session and see if he will be with the team.

"It's still one day, we didn't decide and we will see tomorrow.

"Tomorrow we must be ready to suffer and then be clinical and aggressive when we get chances.

"They have an advantage and we need to take risks, be brave, plan the game knowing City is a team that can manage different ways to play.

"We need to be clever, believe and show our quality on the pitch. It will be a battle but we will be ready."

More suffering expected for PSG

Having suffered a 2-1 defeat in Paris last week, PSG know they must score at least twice on Tuesday if they are to stand any chance of heading to their second straight Champions League final.

Pochettino said he will not tweak PSG's formation - with or without Mbappe - but emphasised the importance of his team converting their counter-attacking opportunities.

"Tomorrow we must be ready to suffer and then be clinical and aggressive when we get chances," the Argentine coach said.

"They have an advantage and we need to take risks, be brave, plan the game knowing City is a team that can manage different ways to play.

"We need to be clever, believe and show our quality on the pitch. It will be a battle but we will be ready."
