Liverpool Receive Injury Update On PSG's Mbappe & Neymar Ahead Of Champions League Clash

The most expensive partnership in football
The most expensive partnership in football

Liverpool may have to face the challenge of handling the PSG tyro Kylian Mbappe in next week’s Champions League tie with the French champions in Paris after positive news about his fitness has emerged from the local press.

The 19-year-old fell heavily on his right shoulder while playing for the French national team against Uruguay yesterday and had to go off with little more than a half hour on the clock, raising questions over whether or not he’d be sidelined for a significant period.

His manager Didier Deschamp, who gave the ex-Monaco youngster his debut and has showed continuous faith in him since, said afterward: "He has a sore shoulder, he's fallen badly. He will have to see with the medical staff. I hope it's not bad."

But according to reports this morning from Le Parisien, the injury was not as serious as it first seemed, and that Mbappe had almost full use of his shoulder back by the time the game had ended at the Stade de France.

Further, the local outlet claim that tests conducted today indicate that Mbappe should be withdrawn from selection from his side’s Ligue 1 tie with Toulouse on Saturday, but will be available for the tie at the Parc des Princes on Wednesday, which is vital to them with matters finely poised in Group C.

Meanwhile, his Brazilian teammate Neymar limped off minutes into a friendly tie against Cameron in Milton Keynes last night, where he seemingly suffered from a groin issue.

That leaves his club manager Thomas Tuchel with another worry.

Brazil doctor Rodrigo Lasmar spoke briefly on SporTV: “It does not appear to be a serious injury."

His PSG teammate Eric Choupo-Moting, lining up against him for Cameroon on the night, had his fingers crossed.

"I talked quickly to him but it was just after the injury. I think it's not too serious. I hope he will be ready next week for us," he said after the game.
