Blanc confirms 3 PSG players out, 3 more in doubt for Chelsea match

Paris Saint-Germain's injury crisis appears to have serious teeth. After losing a slew of players on Saturday against Caens, the Parisians' main hope was that none of the injuries would prove serious, but ... yeah, no.


Serge Aurier, Yohan Cabaye and Lucas Moura are officially out, unfortunately. There are two or three other players who are doubtful [Thiago Motta, Blaise Matuidi, Marquinhos], we’ll have to assess their fitness after today’s training session.

I'll ask them if they are 100% fit and ready for this match, as for this type of fixtures, you need all your players on the pitch to be at 100%.

I wouldn't have expected Aurier or Cabaye to start against Chelsea, but Lucas Moura's already a significant blow and if Motta and Matuidi are both out PSG are looking extremely thin in midfield, which should theoretically be their strongest aspect. Perhaps we'll see David Luiz there?
