Solskjaer: Manchester United can't feel sorry for themselves after PSG loss

Manchester United will host PSG on Tuesday at Old Trafford in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 series.

Herrera went on to acknowledge the importance of remaining upbeat following the Champions League defeat to a PSG team that is viewed among the favourites to win this season's competition.

Alexis Sanchez replaced Lingard, but rather than turning to Romelu Lukaku in place of Martial, which would have enabled Marcus Rashford to move to the right flank and maintain United's threat, Solskjaer instead brought on Juan Mata, despite his lack of pace and inability to play on the right side of a front three.

United, who won ten and drew the other of Solksjaer's first 11 matches, went behind in the 53rd minute when they switched off as Di Maria whipped in a corner for Presnel Kimpembe to steal in at the far post and smack home an unstoppable volley.

The English giants will also have to cope without Paul Pogba in three weeks' time as he was sent off for two yellow cards a minute from time to round off a awful night for the hosts.

Back in December everyone knew it was going to be a tough night for United, a bit of form and a couple of injuries for their opposition didn't change the fact that PSG are very good, as they proved on Tuesday night. He obviously hates YOUR football team and has no interest in synchronised swimming. "That's the level we need to aim for at this club".

Solskajaer said: 'You could see we have not played at this level for a while.

Zaniolo continued his superb breakthrough season by finding the net twice in six second-half minutes before Adrian Lopez pegged one back in the 79th minute. "If you tease him it does not make him weaker", said Tuchel. We're going to continue.

The 20-year-old World Cup victor slotted a huge chance wide on the half hour mark, although Mbappe would likely have been ruled offside by VAR, on its introduction to the Champions League, even if he had found the net.

Given the Parisians' two away goals, it would take something monumental to turn this tie around for the English giants.

Former United winger Di Maria, booed from the outset by sections of the crowd, had the last laugh when he collected a fine pass from Marquinhos and set up Mbappe for the second goal.

And any hope of a United comeback in Paris suffered another huge blow when Pogba was dismissed late on for catching Dani Alves with a raised boot.
