Boost for PSG as Neymar, Mbappe & Kean in squad to face Monaco

A groin injury forced Neymar to miss PSG's previous three games and he was released from Brazil duty after it was deemed he would not be ready to feature in their World Cup qualifier against Uruguay on Tuesday.

Kean sustained a muscular problem while representing Italy during the international break, and Mbappe made his return for France on Tuesday after suffering a hamstring issue against Nantes on October 31.

The trio will all be available to Thomas Tuchel when the Ligue 1 champions take on Monaco at the Stade Louis II, though.

PSG have struggled with injuries throughout the 2020-21 season and will continue to be without Marco Verratti, Mauro Icardi, Julian Draxler, Idrissa Gueye, Thilo Kehrer and Juan Bernat.

Ander Herrera will also sit out the trip to Monaco after taking a blow to his calf during a training session on Thursday.

Tuchel's side are currently five points clear at the top of the Ligue 1 table although their Champions League progression is anything but certain, with PSG currently in third place in Group H, behind both Manchester United and RB Leipzig .
