"Would I have liked to play for PSG? Yes".
"You can not replace quality players like this, Neymar is one of the key, key players in Europe and we miss him a lot and now we miss a second key player with Edi", Tuchel told reporters on Monday.
"You can't just place all the burden on him but we're talking about Kylian Mbappé - he has his own qualities, it's not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar, and he can't do all three things at the same time", said Tuchel.
"I have found out what kind of team we have, we are looking like a team, we are agreeing on how we should approach games". We play attacking football, we're PSG, that's what we're used to - to create opportunities, it's in our DNA. Changing now would be hard.
"There will be moments when we need to defend deep, as I expect United to attack us, but we must be at our best everywhere. That said, we are here to score - that is clear".
Tuchel also dismissed the notion that Kylian Mbappe must step up without Neymar and Cavani and tried to temper the expectations around the France global.
"Kylian needs to be free to play with confidence". I want for us to be able to help him by finding him with good passes.
Angel Di Maria also makes the XI in the number 10 role, and he will have a point to prove against his former club having become one of the most high-profile United flops in recent years during one unhappy and unsuccessful season at Old Trafford. It will be different again this time as it is not the same team, nor the same situation. Playing them now is one of the toughest challenge we can have.
Di Maria played under Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford, and the Dutch boss made a decision to sell the 30-year-old after he failed to board a flight before a pre-season tour.
"Angel is a top player and he is in good form", said Draxler.
The Argentine also believes that PSG struggled during the group stages of the Champions League this season. There will be moments when we'll defend because I expect a very attacking Manchester, very fearless, with many attacking players.
