United host PSG on Tuesday for the first-leg of their round of 16 clash. Aside from scoring two goals, his range of passing and overall quality on the ball made him the best player on the pitch. You've just got to be ready when you get the chance. It is a telling stat which goes to prove just how long the fans had to wait to finally see a United team performing as they can.

"It's not like we are coming in cold".

"I don't really like to compare players, but I know that Paul is in good form, in a good place at the moment", Solskjaer said.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is once again without Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia as they continue to work their way back to full fitness but Chris Smalling is back in the squad after recovering from a foot injury.

In the center forward position, Rashford has been fantastic under Solskjaer but he needs to rest and we can expect Belgian global Romelu Lukaku to return to the starting XI.

"I've been in that situation a few times myself and it's about who grabs it". It's the whole team, it's us together.

"We gave them the first 10 minutes, maybe played into their hands".

'There is just a positivity about the place, to grind results out when we're not playing well, to play forward, to play with intent and goal - and that's exactly what we're doing.

The French midfielder scored twice against Fulham on Saturday as Manchester United picked up a 3-0 win at Craven Cottage.

However, the upcoming week will be tough for the young team as they would be facing PSG, Chelsea and may also lock horns with Manchester City. We conceded the counter-attack, and at that point it was more hard.

"That's the real problem".

"You know he's going to be able to contribute and he will contribute, don't worry about that".

"I understand the fans".

Solskjaer said that while there was a chance his tinkering could have backfired, his footballing philosophy was "if you don't risk, you don't win".

"Manchester have champions in their squad and kept possession of the ball - for us it was then more hard".
