Marcus Rashford leads United attack against injury-hit PSG as Bailly starts

Anthony Martial will start from the left-wing while the midfield trio will have Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba in control.

"He doesn't need to change clubs for this".

"I only stayed one year". Optimism was scant at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer is not only winning games like a United manager is expected to win, he is also talking and acting like one.

Di Maria was a big money signing by Manchester United and Louis van Gaal in 2014.


Whereas an expensive flop who lasted just a single season at Manchester United, Angel di Maria might be keen to prove a point when he goes back to Old Trafford.

Solskjaer, by contrast, knows which buttons to press, and it was like watching Ferguson at times during his news conference.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has yet to taste defeat since his appointment in December and will be high on confidence ahead of the meeting with PSG in the Champions League.

Julian Draxler, who will be standing in for one of PSG's many injured parties, feels that he and his team-mates can stop the French World Cup victor, however.

When United were initially pitted against Les Parisiens, very few gave them the chance, given their struggles to garner regular wins under ex-boss Jose Mourinho.


Solskjaer used a famous game from his own career as a signpost to the mindset he expects on Tuesday night.

However, with the Brazilian and Cavani missing, the spotlight is on 20-year-old Mbappe to shine on the Champions League stage like he did in delivering the World Cup for France. "And I think I don't really want to talk about the result, but we want to score perhaps more than one [goal]".

Fellaini is now an interested observer of the goings-on at Old Trafford, with United enjoying a welcome upturn in form under Solskjaer.

United's rebirth under Solskjaer couldn't have been any more poorly timed as far as PSG counterpart Thomas Tuchel is concerned.

"We will fight to go all the way to Champions League final but first we must eliminate PSG". "It's not his job to replace Neymar and Cavani and do the job of all three of them".


PSG, meanwhile, topped a tough UCL group featuring Liverpool and Napoli and leads Ligue 1 comfortably, but success for the big-spending club depends on its European fortunes, and it will have to make headway without some of its chief contributors in the opening leg of the round. We're not sure if he swore that time, but, yeah, he probably did then too.
