PSG recovered from a loss away at Liverpool and a draw at home to Napoli to finish top of their group before being drawn against United in the last 16.
But head coach Tuchel does not want the 20-year-old to alter his game to compensate for the absence of his usual attacking partners. "It's not his job to replace Cavani and Ney".
"Kylian needs to be free to play with confidence". And, he needs to play with a good mindset, needs to be positive - it's part of his development. They have not progressed past the Champions League quarter-finals in any of the previous six seasons and Tuchel knows that it is on the continent, rather than domestically, where he will be judged.
A 6-1 capitulation to Barcelona after winning the first leg of their last 16 tie 4-0 in 2017 remains a painful memory.
"PSG is playing against a team that is in their moment now so anything can happen with United, whoever they play against". It's a big test but it's 180 minutes of football - anything can happen. "But thanks to God, I was able to come to PSG and be myself again", the former Real Madrid superstar said, as quoted by The Sun. We have a second leg in Paris, and we feel very strong and comfortable at Parc des Princes.More news: Epic Games utilizes Fortnite advertisements to thwart Apex Legends

Solskjaer was back in Norway as Molde manager watching with his son when the December draw that paired the sides together took place.
"On Tuesday, a very important game is waiting for us", he said, per Goal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was handed the reins until the end of the season and a revitalised United side reeled off eight straight wins in all competitions, including victories at Tottenham and Arsenal.
"I imagine United will be bold and we'll have to be at our best level".
Solskjaer likes to borrow from the book of Sir Alex Ferguson when it comes to setting up his team, something made easier with Mike Phelan assisting at the training ground and in the dugout.
There have been glimpses, such as decisions to drop Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez and to sell Marouane Fellaini, but as the weeks progress and the games get bigger, Solskjaer will have to make even bigger calls.
