Manchester City Team News
Following a positive coronavirus test, Man City will be without Kevin De Bruyne for this match, and it is unclear whether Jack Grealish will be declared fit after missing the win over Everton due to a minor injury.
Ferran Torres is still recovering from a foot fracture, and Cole Palmer led the line in his place against the Toffees, but Jesus should be back in the starting lineup this week.
Ruben Dias and Riyad Mahrez are both expected to start against Les Parisiens, with Ilkay Gundogan benefiting from De Bruyne’s forced absence in the centre.

Meanwhile, PSG’s medical department has been depleted in recent weeks, and Sergio Ramos could be close to making his long-awaited debut in navy blue.
The more likely candidates to return to the backline are Marquinhos and Presnel Kimpembe, while goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma is still a concern due to illness.
Julian Draxler and Rafinha are also expected to miss out, despite the fact that neither would have been in contention to start, with Messi, Mbappe, and Neymar forming their unstoppable front three once more.
