"It was a new system and we weren't really used to it", Mbappe said.

"We will go to Paris to try to do something".

Di Maria was the architect of PSG's victory, providing the corner that allowed Kimpembe to open the scoring in the 53rd minute before teeing up Mbappe on the hour.

What: Manchester United will host Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of the Round of 16 in the UEFA Champions League.

"There is a reason behind them being one of the favourites for the Champions League". Jose Mourinho took charge for their previous match in the Champions League, but he has been replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, under whom the former winners are unbeaten in his 12 matches in charge.

The Red Devils showed too little of the attacking flair that has characterized them for the past months and instead were content to see the game through as passengers.

"We've given ourselves the best possible opportunity with the way we've gone into this game because we are confident", added the Norwegian. "But considering how many players we were missing and others not in great shape, it was great to win here in these circumstances". Was this the moment, the night, when Manchester United realised they will need to be bolder when they look for a manager in the summer?


"We need to stop with the scare stories".

Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard are also fitness doubts after limping off with injuries before the second half.

Angel di Maria was roundly booed by the home support on his return to Old Trafford after an unhappy one-season spell with United after signing for a then club record £60 million in 2014. Substitute Alexis Sanchez struggled to impose himself up front.

Twenty years after winning the Champions League as a United player, this was Solskjaer's first taste of the competition in management having only previously coached Molde in his native Norway and Cardiff before being hired by United. He needs to play with a good mindset and to be positive.

"I was watching with Noah and we said "wow, that's a tough challenge", said Solskjaer on Monday.

"Maybe he was a bit nervous and a bit overused because he plays all the time for us. It was a nice comeback for him, I'm very happy for him and of course he helped us a lot".
