Champions League: Defeat to PSG leaves Manchester United on brink of elimination

  • Man United team news: Solskjaer confirms duo out of Champions League tie

The one who ended up seeing red was Paul Pogba as he was ruled out of the return leg in Paris after being sent off late.

Manchester United will face their biggest test yet under the tutelage of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, when they welcome PSG in the first leg of their Round of 16 tie on Tuesday night.

Solskjaer was still Cardiff manager when United last won a knockout phase game in the Champions League - against Olympiakos under David Moyes in March 2014.

The Red Devils showed too little of the attacking flair that has characterized them for the past months and instead were content to see the game through as passengers.

This is a level up from what we have played against.

"To open the scoring in this sort of Champions League match against United is a reward and something that I will always remember", said the France global.

"We are going to have to go down there, believe in ourselves, play a good game and improve from today obviously".

"Ultimately, winning the Premier League has to be the aim for a club of United's size".

4 players Rams could send to Steelers in potential Antonio Brown trade
Financially, it doesn't make much sense for the Steelers to trade Brown, even if the Chiefs or another team were interested. ESPN's Adam Schefter just reported that Brown has requested a trade from the Steelers, who've yet to respond to the report.

"Let me put it another way: will Manchester United miss [Paul] Pogba, if he was not there?"

"It was a new system and we weren't really used to it", Mbappe said.

Solskjaer was in no mood to pull his punches with the Chilean, saying: "I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez". "When he plays, he needs to find himself because we know there's a quality player there".

By the time Di Maria responded to the torrent of abuse by picking up a bottle of beer hurled at him and taking a sip, PSG was already leading thanks to academy graduate Presnel Kimpembe's first PSG goal in the 53rd minute.

Coach Thomas Tuchel praised Di Maria - a £59.7m flop during his one season at United - for brushing off the jeers of the home fans, and claimed that Ashley Young should have received a second booking for shoving his old team-mate into the perimeter wall. We were not used to it.

No club has ever recovered from losing the first leg of a Champions League tie by two goals or more and still progressed.

"It's always risky for him from the corners and of course a superb assist, it was a flawless pass for Kylian". Of course. Neymar is one of our best players and one of the best players in Europe.
