Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: Manchester United not dead in Europe despite PSG defeat

"When we go down there to Paris, we'll give it a go".

PSG's trip to Old Trafford Tuesday's first leg could not have come at a worse time for Thomas Tuchel's side as injuries to key players have pilled up for the Parisians, just as United have hit form under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Jose Mourinho took charge for their previous match in the Champions League, but he has been replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, under whom the former winners are unbeaten in his 12 matches in charge. They started to control the game. This is a level up from what we have played against with the games we've had.

United has only scored one goal at home in four Champions League games this season, a 1-0 victory over Young Boys. That's the level we need to aim for at this club.

"He had three players around him all the time and he was still at the top, so that's a big blow because he has been fantastic for us".

'I'm disappointed we're not going to have Paul in the next game.

United was forced to adapt, too, after losing Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial to injury for the second half.

Assessing Sanchez's performance, Solskjaer said after the 2-0 defeat: 'I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez. "When he plays, he needs to find himself because we know there's a quality player there".

Tsonga wins Open Sud de France after beating Herbert | AP sports
Meanwhile, at the Sofia Open, a Frenchman was beaten in the semi-finals as Gael Monfils went down to third seed Daniil Medvedev. Tsonga has won both ATP meetings against Herbert, including a 6-1, 6-2 victory in the Round of 16 at the same event in 2017.

The Red Devils have beaten both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur since Solskjaer's appointment but Manchester United will still have to face Liverpool FC, Chelsea FC and Manchester City in the Premier League.

Di Maria, whose every touched was booed by the United fans following the manner of his departure from Old Trafford in 2015, then set up Kylian Mbappe seven minutes later.

Kimpembe opened the scoring from a corner but Mbappe's sensational sweeping finish from a swift counter put PSG in the box seat - the French star's pace leaving United's defenders in his wake.

No club has ever recovered from losing the first leg of a Champions League tie by two goals or more and still progressed. We were not used to it.

"We're happy, but it's only half-time in the tie and we need to continue preparing well, because I think in the last 20 minutes we dropped off a bit physically".

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