Players to Watch
Anthony Gordon (Newcastle) – Anthony Gordon has scored five goals and has also supplied five assists over his 12 appearances. The winger has been involved in 50 per cent of his side’s goals in home matches when selected, producing four goals and four assists.
Ousmane Dembele (PSG)– Dembele was a bundle of energy against Monaco last week, providing a pacey dual-threat on the other flank to Mbappe and making Monaco’s back three look ragged at times. PSG will be hoping he can maintain that form going into this fixture tonight.
