The Premier League giants, as well as Crystal Palace and QPR, dispatched representatives to run the rule over the Coupe de la Ligue clash, the home team confirm

Scouts from several Premier League clubs arrived in France to watch Bordeaux's Coupe de la Ligue clash with Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday.

The Ligue 1 club confirmed on their official website that representatives from Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Crystal Palace – as well as the Championship's QPR – were due to attend the game, which kicks off at 20.00GMT.

The quarter-final match is the two sides' third meeting of the season in all competitions and, though they have won both previous matches, PSG announced a strong team to face Francis Gillot's men.

Laurent Blanc deployed the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Jeremy Menez, Javier Pastore and Lucas Moura, while Bordeaux defender Ludovic Sane is among those in the hosts' starting XI who have previously been linked with a move to the Premier League.

PSG are currently top of the Ligue 1 table this season, five points clear of fellow heavy spenders Monaco after 20 games.
