Champions League: PSG inflicts Solskjaer’s 1st United loss

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can only get the job full-time on one condition- Redknapp

In-game injuries to Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard heavily affected the match as United failed to recover.

After a run of 10 wins and one draw in 11 games since Solskjaer replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho in December, defeat is a reality check for United's revival and they have a mountain to climb when the sides meet again for the second leg on March 6.

"I think if they could beat PSG that would be an incredible performance but if they face some of the top teams in the competition such as Barcelona or Juventus or Liverpool or City I think they struggle when they get to those sort of matches".

Former England global Alan Shearer has named Chilean football star Alexis Sanchez as the only player whose game has not improved under Manchester United boss Solskjaer.

For starters, Solskjaer was managing Cardiff at the time, left and went back to Molde for a second spell before being "loaned" to his beloved United as interim boss until the end of the season.

We have seen them start to play at their expected level in the Premier League, which has brought them some fantastic results but, as we saw, the last 16 of the Champions League is another step up in class.

He added: "You can't feel sorry for yourself".

The French midfielder received a second yellow card in the closing stages at Old Trafford for a foul on Dani Alves.

"I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez", Solskjaer said.

Booed and jeered by a normally magnanimous home crowd, Di Maria's speed and skill stung as he put his former employers to the sword. If anyone deserves credit, it is Nemanja Matic for the way he stifled Julian Draxler by breaking up PSG attacks time and again during the first half. He had a bit of a hard time because I was close to him.

"I'm happy he stayed confident, he's always super reliable, he always gives his best and for that it's easy to forgive him when he has not such a good first half".

However, it was when given the chance to counter-attack and use Mbappe's speed they looked most risky.

"It's always risky for him from the corners and of course a superb assist, it was a flawless pass for Kylian".

"I don't think they are good enough to win the Champions League irrespective of what has happened in the last few weeks".
