  • Mbappe and Solskjaer

Di Maria turned provider yet again 7 minutes later as he exploited the gaps left by Manchester United on the left wing as they pushed up searching for an equalizer to tee up Kylian Mbappe for the French team's second of the night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's reign saw its first bump in the road, with a lacklustre performance from his players condemning Manchester United to a first defeat in 2019. Yet, in the days leading up to the game, the Ligue 1 champions were not considered to be favourites any more.

The French champions put together a brilliant performance, with their first goal coming courtesy of a corner from Angel Di Maria that was headed in by Presnel Kimpembe. They were a team united.

"I'm not afraid of that." said Ole, when he was asked whether the defeat could end United's recent momentum.

"When we go to Paris we'll give it a go".

When this tie was announced, Manchester United were 11/5 to win this match with Ladbrokes, who priced PSG at 11/10 and the draw at 12/5.

Despite the introduction of Romelu Lukaku, alongside the likes of Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata, the home side were toothless in the final third as they tried to claw their way back into the game having fallen behind.

But after an eighth loss in nine matches, France's captain Guilhem Guirado had no words of comfort. "It's very painful conceding try after try", the hooker said.

I would say a maximum of two - Pogba and David de Gea - which tells you how far United are away from mounting a serious challenge in the Champions League.

"In the first half, we were fine". The balls forward from Nemanja Matic, crosses from Ashley Young and surges from Pogba were all dealt with.

Marquinhos' versatility, which enables him to play in midfield or in the heart of defence, may come in handy for the second leg as the Parisians may look to sit deep and frustrate Manchester United at the Parc des Princes.

Pogba and Mourinho had several run-ins during their time together at Old Trafford, with the Frenchman losing his place in the squad before Solskjaer's arrival.

They soaked up United's pressure and early high tempo.

If United are going to get back to where they want to be then that is a position where they need to identify someone who is world-class and available, and bring them in.

They also carried him through the section as they celebrated their gripping 2-0 win in the first-leg game.
