Paris Saint-Germain trio, Marco Verratti, Blaise Matuidi and David Luiz are all thought to be doubts to face Chelsea.
According to ESPN, the three players could feature but it isn’t yet clear out of three who will. The Italian midfielder sat out of PSG’s latest Ligue 1 victory over Marseille and Laurent Blanc confirmed his doubts.
I’m not sure if he’ll play against Chelsea, we’re optimistic. He’s 100 percent indispensable to PSG.
Matuidi did start against Marseille on Sunday, but he asked to be taken off after feeling a pain in his adductor muscle. The midfielder said this following the club’s 2-1 victory.
I felt a pain in my adductor [muscle], we’ll see how things develop in the next few days. I hope it’s going to be OK.
Someone who didn’t ask to come off against Marseille was David Luiz. The midfielder looked to be in some discomfort during the game but decided to battle on and continue, rather than coming off.
Blanc confirmed after the game that the midfielder was suffering from some pain in his thigh, making him a doubt for the reunion with his former side.
The meeting between the two teams will be the third in as many seasons.
