PSG's Kylian Mbappe on win - It's only 'half-time,' can't play scared

Anthony Martial is keen for caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to get the job on a permanent basis

"We've got so many games to play for, so no".

It was Solskjaer's 12th game since he took over as interim manager from Jose Mourinho and his side were out-performed by superior opposition.

The United boss' night took another turn for the worse when Paul Pogba was sent off, leaving the 45-year-old Norwegian with an uphill battle when his side travels to the Parc des Princes for the return leg next month.

United did hold their own in the first half of a frenetic match but PSG dealt with what they had to offer.

City have won four of the last nine league clashes with United claiming three, although they have triumphed in only one of the last four encounters on home soil.

"They are muscle injuries, we have to wait a couple of days". Indeed, United are unbeaten in four games in all competitions against the Gunners and have emerged victorious from their last two trips to North London.

The midfield features Marco Verratti, Marquinhos, Julian Draxler, and Dani Alves on the wing, with former Man Utd player Angel Di Maria on the other flank behind World Cup victor Kylian Mbappe.

I think the best way to illustrate where United are in comparison to the leading European clubs is to ask which of their players would get in a full-strength PSG team, when Neymar and Edinson Cavani are available.

People have said Solskjaer has enjoyed the rub of the green in his first few weeks in charge - but he was very unlucky there.

It made a bad situation worse for United since he will now miss the second leg due to suspension.

Enough with the scare stories, says PSG's Mbappe
Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard are also fitness doubts after limping off with injuries before the second half. PSG's better quality Paris Saint-Germain were missing two of their star players in Neymar and Edinson...

"I must thank my teammates for an incredible performance", the Italian said. "He needs to find himself when he plays because we know there's a quality player there".

There was an irony that Angel di Maria was one of PSG's most effective players.

"Today, who would dispute that Martial is indispensable for Man United?"

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.

Solskjaer, meanwhile, has admitted he is unsure what to do to help solve Alexis's struggles at United, suggesting it's down to the player to rediscover his best form.

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.

Realistically, they were never going to win the Champions League anyway but what they can achieve is finish in the top four of the Premier League, and continue their progress in the FA Cup.

"Congratulations to my team, we were excellent", the German said. "To defend like that and not allow chances. It's a big achievement for us".

"It's a hard mountain to climb but it's not impossible", said Solskjaer. "We're Man United, we always bounce back".
