Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel is confident that star duo Neymar and Kylian Mbappe will be fit to face Liverpool on Wednesday.

The pair sustained injuries on international duty last week and Neymar in particular looked unlikely to be fit to face the Reds in Paris.

PSG need to win in order to take control of group C, while Liverpool want to take a good result into matchday six where they host Napoli.

However, the Reds chances have taken a blow after Tuchel revealed that Neymar and Mbappe will return to training on Monday.
