Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino called upon his feared attacking triumvirate for Tuesday's Champions League group-stage visit from Manchester City.

Lionel Messi missed back-to-back Ligue 1 matches after suffering a knee injury during his home debut earlier in September, but he was declared fit to play alongside Kylian Mbappe and Neymar against Pep Guardiola's side.

Gianluigi Donnarumma was picked in goal ahead of Keylor Navas for PSG.

Meanwhile, Raheem Sterling and Riyad Mahrez replaced Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus in City's lineup following Saturday's 1-0 away win at Chelsea.

PSG's starting XI: Donnarumma; Mendes, Kimpembe, Marquinhos, Hakimi; Herrera, Gueye, Verratti; Neymar, Mbappe, Messi

Manchester City's starting XI: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Laporte, Cancelo; Silva, Rodri, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Grealish, Sterling

Manchester City met PSG in the Champions League semifinals last season. The English side earned a 4-1 aggregate victory.
