Solskjaer: Manchester United can't feel sorry for themselves after PSG loss

Solskjaer: Manchester United can't feel sorry for themselves after PSG loss

Don't be afraid: we're good'.

No United player has scored or assisted more goals than the Frenchman since Solskjaer took over, though his recent upturn in form was spoiled slightly by a red card in Tuesday's Champions League defeat to PSG. "It was not easy with injuries [Neymar, Edinson Cavani] but we have great players, a great team, the match is ideal tonight".

Maybe they can do the same in Paris, but few are expecting it after the reality check dished out by a team who have been built to win the Champions League.

I think Ole should get the job on a full-time basis based on what he has done since taking charge - not just with his fantastic results but because of the way he has changed the whole outlook of the club.

I thought that after they lost at home to Juventus in October and, although they now have a different manager, as a team they are still in exactly the same place, which is well behind the leading European sides.

Presnel Kimpembe opened the scoring for Thomas Tuchel's men in the second half, with an in-form Kylian Mbappé also finding the back of the net to double their lead.

"We will give it a go".

Phil Mickelson finishes off a fifth win at Pebble Beach
Mickelson is now top of the leaderboard on 18-under with two holes left to play, while Casey is on 15-under with three holes left. This was a fantastic win for the 27-year-old, a protege of fellow Aberdonian and former Open champion Paul Lawrie.

It was Solskjaer's 12th game since he took over as interim manager from Jose Mourinho and his side were out-performed by superior opposition.

Di Maria, who was regularly told off by Tuchel for profligacy in the first half, looked like the player United hoped he would have been in the second half as he had a hand in both of PSG's goals.

"I am not scared of any comeback, because if you are scare you can't reach any goal", Alves said.

"We had many midfielders and we are used to playing with more forwards so we had to adapt".

But they did. PSG's injury-hit team went to Manchester, saw what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men had for them, and conquered.

United were impressive in the first half, without creating much in front of goal. Tenacious in the tackle and composed in possession, the Brazilian epitomised the guts shown every player in a white shirt at Old Trafford. He knew United were short there, and they still are.

The teams will face off March 6 in the second leg of their round-of-16 series. United though did bounce back from that by then winning in Turin against the Italian champions 2-1.
