Man United: Herrera stays optimistic despite PSG defeat

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suffered his first defeat as United boss

Di Maria proved to his doubters that he does possess bottle by taking the game by the scruff of the neck and providing two quick-fire assists for Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe early in the second half.

Di Maria, who struggled in his only season at United before being offloaded to PSG in 2015, sent in the corner that Kimpembe raced into the penalty area unchecked to meet with a volley.

The World Cup victor has scored eight goals and set up another five since Solskjaer took over in mid-December and having been given licence to roam from midfield has looked a player re-born.

Incidentally, as it would turn out, it was also their heaviest defeat at Old Trafford in European competition history. "Top four is one thing but we want to be at the top", added Solskjaer.

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. This was a level up from what we've played against.

"French football must go as far as possible in the Champions League".

'Coming to America' sequel set for 2020 release
Although the sequel to 'Coming To America' was only announced a few weeks ago, a confirmed release date has now been set for it. So far, August 7, 2020 is home to a still untitled WB Event film.

United suffered a double blow with speedy duo Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial both hobbling off at the break and they may miss the return leg, as well as Monday's FA Cup tie at Chelsea and the following Premier League match at home to Liverpool.

Pogba received a second yellow card in the final minute, meaning he will miss the second leg in three weeks.

But having come off the bench to score the victor in the 93rd minute of the 1999 final against Bayern Munich, Solskjaer is the man who epitomised more than most the "never say die" attitude of many Sir Alex Ferguson Manchester United teams.

In the night's other last-16 game, teenager Nicolo Zaniolo scored twice to lead Roma to a 2-1 victory. We're going to continue.

Arsene Wenger has criticised Manchester United's performance against PSG in the Champions League on Tuesday night and says they were completely blown away in midfield.

"You can see that we've not played games at this level for a while and we'll have to learn from this experience, because it was one of those experiences that can go either way". A repeat of that 3-0 win in Paris next month would take United through to the quarterfinals.
