Manchester United suffer heaviest home European loss

Man Utd 0-2 Paris St-Germain: Defeat down to lack of quality, not Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's ability - Phil Neville analysis

United had to fight their way back from 2-0 down at St Mary's Stadium to draw 2-2 courtesy of goals from Romelu Lukaku and Ander Herrera in December, and the Saints emerged from their last trip to Old Trafford with a 0-0 stalemate.

The Serbian has played an important role in the heart of midfield under Solskjaer, and the pressure will be on him to produce again following Pogba's moment of madness that sees him suspended for the return leg. "[Anthony] Martial and [Jesse] Lingard going off was a problem".

"I thought United were affected by the substitutions at half time".

United have got decent defenders like Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof, who is another player that has been impressive under Solskjaer, but both of them would be better alongside a really commanding centre-half.

United will have it all to do in the second leg as none of the previous 34 teams to lose a home first leg of a Champions League tie by two or more goals have ever progressed.

Sure, this isn't Glastonbury Festival, but at least United fans will appreciate PSG supporters putting on an incredible moment with one of their stewards. They did not have a central defensive partnership of the quality of Thiago Silva and Kimpembe, a midfielder of the quality of Marco Verratti or even Marquinhos, or a player with the speed, skill and strength of Mbappe. A frustrated Paul Pogba, who often had three opponents around him when he had the ball, was sent off for a second yellow card with two minutes to go.

PSG serve Solskjaer a stark lesson
Could United have done anything differently? On the continent you come across teams who give you much less of a chance. Gianluigi Buffon practically had a night off in the PSG goal whereas David De Gea had to make all sorts of saves.

Apple Reportedly Having News Service Event on March 25
Apple is reportedly planning a media event at the Steve Jobs Theater on March 25, according to sources familiar with the matter. The Journal said it also has concerns but has had productive conversations with Apple , according to the report .

Substitute Sanchez was again anonymous and Solskjaer admitted the Chilean's lack of form was an issue.

As I said on BBC Radio 5 live before the PSG game, whatever happens in this tie does not change any of that. And Di Maria saw the run, it was a special goal. The Argentine was the most expensive player to join a British football club when he arrived at United in 2014 for £59.7 million (Dh282.9m) but he was a sulky and surly failure who left after a season and a couple of words of English.

"If you tease him then it does not make him weaker", said his manager Thomas Tuchel.

United could face a UEFA probe after it emerged a bottle was thrown at unpopular former winger Angel Di Maria from the crowd.

"Make no mistake about it, Manchester United will have learned a lot". First, Matic abandoned his marking duties at a corner to allow Kimpembe to put PSG in front before the hosts were caught out by a swift counter-attack, and were made to pay by Mbappe. But if you can win the Champions it will be welcome.

That took away the threat of his service to Marcus Rashford and meant Pogba had no space to impose himself on the game. "If we get to half-time with a one-goal lead, that is what we have to aim for".
