Solskjaer admits PSG showed United another level

Mbappe Pogba

"We've got Chelsea and Liverpool in the next two games so whoever feels sorry for themselves will not play the next game", Solskjaer said.

"Manchester United should be at the top and this is a top team we've played against".

Solksjaer's impact as interim boss has been so great that the Theatre Of Dreams was shrouded in an air of expectation before Tuesday's Champions League meeting with Paris St-Germain.

The French Champions were without Brazilian star Neymar Junior, Edinson Cavani, and Thomas Meunier - all of them are likely to be available for the return leg whiles United will be without Paul Pogba who was sent off late in the game for a second bookable offence. When we go to Paris we'll give it a go.

When Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United were drawn together in the Champions League round of 16 back in mid-December, the Parisians were the overwhelming favorites.

United lost forwards Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard to muscle injuries midway through the match and replacements Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata failed to provide the necessary spark. They had the momentum after the first goal and controlled the game. Pinpoint delivery from a corner by the man who cost United a then-British record £59.7m when he arrived from Real Madrid in 2014 led to Presnel Kimpembe escaping Matic and volleying home at the far post.

"Marco and Marquinhos are incredible, but you can not play all season with just two midfielders - not at a club like PSG or a Bayern Munich".

On Wednesday, Gucci said it "deeply apologizes for the offence caused by" its balaclava sweater in a statement posted on Twitter . The shoes are called the " Rue Face Slip On Loafers " and another style that has a heel is called " Ora Face Block Heel Sandal ".

PSG, missing injured twin strikers Neymar and Edinson Cavani, were now dominant and the United goalkeeper denied the unsafe Mbappe a third to prevent United falling further behind.

"The first goal is always going to be important and the way we concede it is disappointing", added Solskjaer. "We knew they wanted to score and we did it".

"It was one of those experiences that can go either way", Solskjaer said.

"It's not going to be a season defining one, it's one we have to learn from".

The Norwegian insisted, however, that his first loss won't wreck the momentum United have built up in the Premier League.

Under Jose Mourinho Manchester United were pretty lucky to get into the knockout stages of the Champions League but they'd been really unlucky to draw PSG in the last 16 of the competition. A repeat of that 3-0 win in Paris next month would take United through to the quarterfinals.
