Kylian Mbappe an injury doubt for Liverpool's clash with PSG Kylian Mbappe is an injury doubt for Paris Saint-Germain ahead of their crucial Champions League meeting with Liverpool next Wednesday. The Frenchman fell awkwardly on his shoulder in France’s 1-0 win over Uruguay on Tuesday night, after colliding with goalkeeper Martin Campana. Mbappe left the field in pain but was seen sitting on the substitutes’ bench in the second-half. Les Bleus manager Didier Deschamps spoke about the injury after the game, hinting that it might not be too serious: “He had a shoulder pain after his fall and he has to take exams on Wednesday morning.” “But there is no particular concern.” “There was a shock, a pain, but I do not think there was any twisting or tear.” Not having to deal with Mbappe would be a huge boost to Jurgen Klopp, who knows a Liverpool win at Parc des Princes will secure qualification to the knockout stages. PSG could also be without fellow star man Neymar, who limped out of Brazil’s friendly victory against Cameroon. The likelihood is that the superstar duo will end up being fit for the game, but Thomas Tuchel will be deeply concerned about the situation. Group C is finely poised heading into Matchday 5, with Liverpool, PSG and Napoli battling it out for a place in the last-16.

PSG hosts a Liverpool team at the French capital that it already lost to at Anfield in the early stages of the group stage. All eyes are on whether they train on Monday, two day before the Liverpool clash . PSG manager Thomas Tuchel sounded confident late last week that they would be able to play.

An incredibly competitive group currently sees all four teams separated by just two points with two games still to play, and the result of Wednesday’s match will likely determine who progresses to the knockout stages.
