Manchester United vs. PSG

Mohamed Salah

Mohamed Salah's goal was his 17th Premier League goal of the season

"We have to have a great game".

Thomas Tuchel insists Kylian Mbappe can not be expected to fill the roles of Neymar and Edinson Cavani when Paris Saint-Germain face Manchester United.

"PSG is playing against a team that is in their moment now so anything can happen with United, whoever they play against". PSG has flattered to deceive in the knockouts of the Champions League and that has got a lot to do with what the cognoscenti term "Champions League Pedigree" which roughly means the big game mentality.

"You always expect to win every game of football when you have players like this and you're at a club like this but we know we're not going to win every single game. He has extraordinary quality and works so hard for the team".

The former Real Madrid man joined the Reds back in 2014 for £59.7 million under Louis van Gaal but failed to show anything like his best form before being sold to PSG at a loss just one season later.

"That tells you everything about their evolution".

"Paul (Pogba), who can stop you box to box?"

Belgium right-back Thomas Meunier is also out of the first leg, with PSG confirming he suffered a concussion during Saturday's match.

The Argentine has a vital role to play against a resurgent United with Neymar and Edinson Cavani out injured. "I think Manchester United have the advantage". "They will both be missed, but we should not dwell on our absentees - we must focus".

The club also announced that Ashley Young has signed a new one-year contract, having entered the final months of his previous deal.

Listening to Martial talk in a rare public appearance, it was apparent how much happier he is with Solskjaer's front-foot approach and heartening man-management, to the point that he hopes the Norwegian lands the manager's job on a permanent basis.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done "frighteningly well" at Manchester United, says Lee Sharpe, with a familiar face proving to be a better choice than some of the "bigger names" that have been mentioned.

"He is asking me to attack more".

And Mourinho, who United thought would sprinkle stardust over Old Trafford again, won plenty of games and a couple of trophies, but became so negative and self-obsessed that his public utterances were generally complaints about anything from the club's spending to the weather and traffic in Manchester. I had handsome seasons.
