Goal Scorer:

Luis Enrique has a big list of absentees coming into this crucial UEFA Champions League encounter at home against Newcastle. Wonderkid Warren Zaire-Emery is the latest player to be sidelined, having recently been forced off during his senior international debut.

The 17-year-old is joined by Marco Asensio (foot), Keylor Navas (groin), Nuno Mendes (hamstring), Danilo Pereira (ankle), and Marquinhos (both hamstring) in the treatment room. Presnel Kimpembe (Achilles) is close to a return to fitness. But this game may come too soon for the out-of-favour centre-back to make an appearance.

Enrique will set up PSG in a 4-3-3 shape. Italian international Gianluigi Donnarumma made a dreadful mistake that led to an AS Monaco goal on Friday night, but his status as PSG’s number one is not in jeopardy, with Navas on the sidelines.

Nordi Mukiele was a surprise inclusion at left-back against AS Monaco last time out and could continue in the same role here, whereas attack-minded wing-back Achraf Hakimi will have the freedom to maraud forwards on the opposite flank.

The biggest test will be for the midfield trio of Vitinha, Manuel Ugarte, and Fabian Ruiz as PSG look to control the tempo up against an injury-ravaged but extremely physical Newcastle United midfield.

Of course, they will look to captain Kylian Mbappe for inspiration in attack on Tuesday night. But mercurial Ousmane Dembele and target-man Goncalo Ramos will also have to come up trumps in support of their talisman if they are to breach a rock-solid Newcastle defence.

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Donnarumma; Hakimi, Skriniar, Hernandez, Mukiele; Ruiz, Ugarte, Vitinha; Dembele, Ramos, Mbappe

In the midst of an injury crisis, Eddie Howe’s side have been hit by another major injury blow, with Joe Willock (Achilles) set for another spell on the sidelines. Newcastle will be without key defenders Sven Botman (knee) and Dan Burn (back), who scored in the reverse fixture, for their trip to the French capital.

As well as missing key defenders, Newcastle will also be without important players in other areas of the pitch too, including Elliot Anderson (both back), Harvey Barnes (foot), Joe Willock (Achilles), Jacob Murphy (shoulder), Callum Wilson, and Matt Targett (both hamstring), while Sandro Tonali is suspended for the foreseeable future.

Sean Longstaff (ankle) also sat out the Chelsea game after being injured last time out against Bournemouth. But on-loan left-back Lewis Hall returns to the squad after being ineligible to face his parent club, Chelsea.

Howe was forced to name three goalkeepers on his bench for last Saturday’s game, while Michael Ndiweni, Ben Parkinson, Amadou Diallo, and Alex Murphy, who have just one Premier League appearance between them, have all been named on the bench. Paul Dummett and Matt Ritchie make up the last two slots. So there is no room to rotate his starting XI here.

Electric winger Anthony Gordon was involved in two goals in the 4-1 victory over Chelsea to take his season’s tally to five goals and three assists as he continues to prove doubters wrong. Alexander Isak’s return after the international break was certainly a welcome one for Howe’s side, as he bagged the opener against Chelsea. He will look to give PSG centre-backs something to think about here.

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Pope; Trippier, Lascelles, Schar, Livramento; Longstaff, Guimaraes, Joelinton; Almiron, Isak, Gordon
Prediction: PSG 1-1 Newcastle United
