Why Manchester United lost to PSG - Eric Bailly

Solskjaer congratulates goalkeeper David de Gea after victory at Fulham

"I think if they could beat PSG that would be an incredible performance but if they face some of the top teams in the competition such as Barcelona or Juventus or Liverpool or City I think they struggle when they get to those sort of matches".

No United player has scored or assisted more goals than the Frenchman since Solskjaer took over, though his recent upturn in form was spoiled slightly by a red card in Tuesday's Champions League defeat to PSG.

"Now we're going to forget about this game". In the team meeting before PSG left the hotel, he told his players that, in order to win, they had to be a team, to behave like one and play like one.

PSG were missing strikers Neymar and Edinson Cavani, but the French champions had the squad depth to still find a way through and give United their first defeat in a European tie on home turf by a two-goal margin.

Presnel Kimpembe opened the scoring for Thomas Tuchel's men in the second half, with an in-form Kylian Mbappé also finding the back of the net to double their lead.

"I think we have to lose the virginity in this competition this season once and for all".

From what we have just seen in the first leg, it is extremely hard to make a case for United turning the tie around in Paris on 6 March. 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.

"I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez", said the Norwegian.

"I am not scared of any comeback, because if you are scare you can't reach any goal", Alves said. They did not have a central defensive partnership of the quality of Thiago Silva and Kimpembe, a midfielder of the quality of Marco Verratti or even Marquinhos, or a player with the speed, skill and strength of Mbappe. They had 10 shots at goal but only one was on target (green arrow in right-hand graphic) which came from Marcus Rashford after eight minutes.

"In the first half, we were fine". Tenacious in the tackle and composed in possession, the Brazilian epitomised the guts shown every player in a white shirt at Old Trafford.

'Mourinho wanted discipline from everybody. However, the tempo of their play dropped significantly following the restart and they were deservedly punished.
