Solskjaer admits PSG showed United another level

Solskjaer admits PSG showed United another level

The game itself was an even contest for most of the first half, though PSG took control in the second as United struggled to adapt after losing Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard to injury.

It is painfully ironic that the very tactic of counterattacking which was linked to be the home-side's go-to measure turned out to be their bane.

France defender Kimpembe opened the scoring for PSG with a volley from Angel Di Maria's corner before Mbappe completed a swift counter-attacking move to put the Ligue 1 champions in a strong position ahead of the March 6 return fixture.

"You can't just place all the burden on him but we're talking about Kylian Mbappé - he has his own qualities, it's not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar, and he can't do all three things at the same time", said Tuchel.

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.

The Frenchman scored off of a magnificent run against Manchester United to go up 2-0 in Tuesday's Champions League matchup by doing what he does best: Being faster than everyone on the pitch.

"We deserved to win, and to do so here at Old Trafford just now, I congratulate my team - but it's only half-time and we still have to play at the Parc des Princes".

In her resignation letter on Tuesday, she didn't specify the nature of her disagreement with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Last week, the Globe and Mail reported that the Prime Minister's Office and government officials attempted to pressure Ms.

'This won't be a season-defining experience for us. "That's what sport is all about, particularly when we are playing football and in the Champions League".

"They were a level above us", Solskjaer said after the first leg of the last-16 contest which saw United's record-signing Paul Pogba sent off.

"We know we are capable of winning, but they are capable of winning in Paris as well", the German added.

Di Maria came off to be replaced by Colin Dagba before Solskjaer made his final change of the night as Rashford made way for Romlu Lukaku.

Asked if United now had a mountain to climb in the second leg, Solskjaer said: "Mountains are there to be climbed". United need a coach to make a difference at this level, in the way that Tuchel did by overcoming injury and tactical headaches to secure victory.

The Italian posted a clip during the second half when PSG were effortlessly keeping possession, accompanied by chants of 'Ole!' from the travelling supporters.

"United still have four of their five main rivals to play before the end of the season, starting with Liverpool at home a week on Sunday", Redknapp told the Daily Mail.
