Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suffers his first defeat as United manager as Paul Pogba was also sent-off for a second yellow late on.

Goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe pooped United’s party.

PSG were better side of the Old Trafford match and that was without Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

United didn’t test Gianluigi Buffon with any efforts on goal while Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial both limped off.

A night to forget for United. Brilliant display from PSG.



Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is facing his biggest game since taking charge of Manchester United tonight.

After a club-record 11 games unbeaten to start his stint in the dugout, Solskjaer’s United side host French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.

The visitors are without superstars Neymar and Edison Cavani, although they still boast some big names including wonderkid Kylian Mbappe.

Solskjaer reckons the Parisians will be “more unpredictable” given their enforced changes, whilst United have largely a clean bill of health.

They claimed a comfortable 3-0 win at Fulham at the weekend in the Premier League and are aiming to take a major step towards reaching the Champions League last eight for the first time since 2014.

Solskjaer reverts to his preferred line-up since Mourinho’s sacking, with Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku on the bench and Marcus Rashford starting through the middle up front.

Manchester United: De Gea, Young, Bailly, Lindelof, Shaw, Matic, Herrera, Pogba, Lingard, Martial, Rashford.
Subs: Romero, Jones, Dalot, Fred, Mata, Sanchez, Lukaku.

Paris Saint-Germain: Buffon, Kehrer, Silva, Kimpembe, Bernat, Marquinhos, Verratti, Alves, Draxler, Di Maria, Mbappe.
Subs: Areola, Paredes, Chuopo-Moting, Kurzawa, Nkunku, Diaby, Dagba.
