United given 'reality check' against Paris St Germain, says Solskjaer

Man Utd news PSG boss Thomas Tuchel pinpoints the TWO stars he is scared of most

Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe netted in a 2-0 win at Old Trafford to end Solskjaer's unbeaten run as Manchester United boss.

But Solskjaer admitted that PSG were on "another level" but that he expects his players to respond positively and insisted it was "not impossible" to overturn a 2-0 deficit in the second leg in France on March 6, despite the "big blow" of Paul Pogba being suspended after his red card.

"Congratulations to my team, we were excellent", the German said. That's the level we want to get to.

"In my opinion he needs to play with a good mindset, be positive and realise it's part of his development".

Manchester United see the return of the Champions League on Tuesday evening, when they host Ligue 1 winners Paris Saint Germain in a heavyweight contest at Old Trafford.

While United saw their unblemished record under Solskjaer ended by PSG, there are positives for them to take from their recent showings.

"I must thank my teammates for an incredible performance", the Italian said.

The Red Devils have beaten both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur since Solskjaer's appointment but Manchester United will still have to face Liverpool FC, Chelsea FC and Manchester City in the Premier League. "We showed character to beat one of the best teams in the world in Manchester United".

He added: "You can't feel sorry for yourself".

Coach Thomas Tuchel praised Di Maria - a £59.7m flop during his one season at United - for brushing off the jeers of the home fans, and claimed that Ashley Young should have received a second booking for shoving his old team-mate into the perimeter wall. PSG could also be in trouble as an item landed at the feet of Luke Shaw in the first half.

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.

He said: "In the first half it was a bit hard for him playing right in front of me and losing many easy balls". We were not used to it. The first goal is always going to be important.

"Don't give him that space to go into, but he's lightning quick of course".

"I think we lost some pace [when Antony Martial and Jesse Lingard went off injured in the first half] but won some combination with Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata".
