A delighted Thomas Tuchel confirms that his attacking trio has returned to full fitness ahead of the league outing against Monaco.

Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Moise Kean are all in contention to feature in Paris Saint-Germain’s clash against AS Monaco on Friday.

PSG’s options have largely been limited at times this season due to injuries, suspensions, and positive COVID-19 diagnoses.

Neymar sat out three of his side’s previous matches with a groin issue, with the problem also forcing him to return home early from international duty.

Mbappe sustained a hamstring injury in the 3-0 win over Nantes last month and missed subsequent clashes against RB Leipzig and Rennes while Kean picked up a muscle problem while on international duty with Italy.

All three of them have fully recovered now and are included in PSG’s squad for the trip to Stade Louis II.

“Kylian has a very positive mindset. He had a full training session with us [on Wednesday],” Tuchel said, via Goal. “That was very good, so I’m very confident that he can play. We will have to decide how many minutes he will get, but he feels fit.

“With Neymar, it is a bit different because he didn’t play for Brazil. He started training [on Wednesday] but didn’t do the full training session. He just took part in the first part, so we will step that up.

“I am confident that he might be able to play some minutes, but we will have to wait and see how he reacts in training.”
