Goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe saw the French champions leave Manchester with an important win. "They are teams that are as good as PSG, so we will go there to try and make it hard for them". Tuchel had a gameplan.

"Our goal is to win every competition".

The surf was definitely up for one steward at Old Trafford during Tuesday night's Champions League game.

The teams will face off March 6 in the second leg of their round-of-16 series.

While PSG had the better players, you also have to give credit to their coach Thomas Tuchel because he got his tactics absolutely spot on too. He gave a 75-minute masterclass, bossing the midfield and taking control of the game.

Starting XI: Buffon (6); Kehrer (7), Silva (8), Kimpembe (6), Bernat (7); Marquinhos (9*), Verratti (6), Draxler (6); Di Maria (7), Alves (6), Mbappe (8).

The Chilean played under Wenger at Arsenal for four years from 2014 but has had a slow start at the Old Trafford club. He did not really put a foot wrong.

The youngster insisted he had never anxious about his side losing, despite the injury crisis they have dealt with in recent weeks.

People have said Solskjaer has enjoyed the rub of the green in his first few weeks in charge - but he was very unlucky there. He was right. The players never doubted themselves - but the media and the public did, creating a perception that United had become invincible and would overrun a weakened PSG.

If going to the Parc des Princes two goals down wasn't tough enough already, a late red card means United will have to attempt a comeback without Paul Pogba.

When the draw was announced and United were struggling under Jose Mourinho, that perception was the other way round.

"That is the level we want to get to". He has 14 in the Champions League, 10 away from home, in only 24 appearances.

What will irk Solskjaer is that the two goals his team conceded were relatively soft.

"We couldn't say we were the better team, but they were not better than us either". Even when Juventus won 1-0 in Manchester in October, there was not such a feeling of dominance by an away side.

Defence is the area where I think United need to improve the most, especially at centre-back which is where they still look vulnerable.

As a unit, the Manchester United players were collectively poor. They are a top team.
