“Edi Cavani will train with the team for the first time today, since his injury. I’m not sure he will do the whole session, but he won’t play tomorrow.
“It’s too early for him and we don’t want to take any risks with Edi. Stanley N’Soki has a groin strain and Sébastien Cibois is sick and they are both missing tomorrow.”
Tuchel is leaving no stone unturned ahead of the Caen game despite acknowledging the United clash may be a big distraction.
“We have to accept that everyone is thinking a little bit about the Manchester game. But we have a responsibility to be 100% focused on Caen, and the play as well as we can, like we have our last matches.
“I have confidence in my players, I know they are very serious about reaching our objectives. He told the club’s website.
“We are working on specific aspects of our game and there is no reason why we won’t be focused against Caen. If we want to win away, we need to play well, show all our qualities.
“The team trained very well yesterday, so I am confident. Our challenge is to stay calm and focused and avoid distractions. Caen are fighting for their survival so I expect to play against a team that will give it everything. We have to make the difference.”
