PSG serve Solskjaer a stark lesson

PSG's Kylian Mbappe set the benchmark for young French players winning the World Cup at the age of 19

Their side started their latest Champions League knock-out stage campaign with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United, putting themselves in a strong position to progress to the quarter finals ahead of the second leg in Paris next month.

"Yeah it is (unlucky)", Solskjaer said, when asked about the incident.

"I feel like asking that we stop selling fear, we have to stop being afraid", Mbappe told RMC Sport after the game.

'If you lose being worse than the opponent, that could hurt us.

Solskjaer launched his spell at the helm with an inviting run of fixtures, and a trip to Crystal Palace, who now sit just three points clear of the relegation zone, could prove welcome after games against PSG, Chelsea and Liverpool. "It's a mountain to climb, but not impossible".

Those in the away end made themselves heard before, during and after the game at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer might have that tactical acumen in his locker, but it was not on show on a chastening night for the man in the home dugout.

Pogba's dismissal was the culmination of a surprisingly subdued performance from the man who had been so influential in United's revival under Solskjaer.

City have won four of the last nine league clashes with United claiming three, although they have triumphed in only one of the last four encounters on home soil.

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

Moreover, Mata was incapable of protecting the struggling Ashley Young behind him at right-back, and that was to prove a fatal flaw as the second half wore on as Di Maria tore the veteran apart - avenging a cynical first-half shove into the advertising hoardings - with his direct running, pace and trickery.

United did hold their own in the first half of a frenetic match but PSG dealt with what they had to offer. 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. Gianluigi Buffon practically had a night off in the PSG goal whereas David De Gea had to make all sorts of saves. For once, Solskjaer has a negative milestone with his name on it.

United's big names ultimately did not perform when it mattered.

And Neville believes it will take time before United are a real superpower on the continent again.

Could United have done anything differently?

On the continent you come across teams who give you much less of a chance. Top four is one thing.
