PSG slay Man United, Pogba sees red in ECL

PSG slay Man United, Pogba sees red in ECL”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done "frighteningly well" at Manchester United, says Lee Sharpe, with a familiar face proving to be a better choice than some of the "bigger names" that have been mentioned.

Paul Pogba was sent off as Paris Saint-Germain won 2-0 at Manchester United to take control of their last-16 Champions League tie, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tasting defeat for the first time since taking charge.

An impressive return from those games would bolster interim boss Solskjaer's long-term prospects at United but the Norwegian played down the significance of the next fortnight.

Di Maria was again the creator, finding too much space on the left wing to deliver a low cross that Mbappe finished superbly after powering through a gap in the middle of United's defence.

Anyone in Manchester on Tuesday afternoon would have found it hard to ignore Paris St-Germain supporters ahead of their team's game against Manchester United. "So I'm OK, either way it goes".

There have been glimpses, such as decisions to drop Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez and to sell Marouane Fellaini, but as the weeks progress and the games get bigger, Solskjaer will have to make even bigger calls.

Valverde can only name 18 players in his final match day squad, though, so one player will have to miss out. Benzema and Vinicius have wreaked havoc thus far.

United are looking to reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time since 2013-14, where David Moyes's side were knocked out by Bayern Munich in the last eight.

"He [Solskjaer] was a super unsafe player, any time he came on he was there to win games and he does the same as a manager here".

"I was watching with Noah and we said "wow, that's a tough challenge", said Solskjaer on Monday.
