Manchester United won't be hurt by Paris Saint-Germain setback - Herrera

Realistically, they were never going to win the Champions League anyway but what they can achieve is finish in the top four of the Premier League, and continue their progress in the FA Cup.

He said: "I don't think Manchester United have any chance in Paris [in the return leg]".

Tuchel's selection problems mirror PSG's first Champions League group game at Anfield, in which PSG could select only one recognised midfielder and were flattered by the scoreline in a 3-2 defeat.

"I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez", said Solskjaer.

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.

In seven second-half minutes, when Presnel Kimpembe and then Kylian Mbappe scored, the French champions punctured the soaring confidence of everyone associated with United since the Norwegian took charge in December.

" Today who would dispute that Martial is indispensable for Man United?"

"I am not scared of any comeback, because if you are scare you can't reach any goal", Alves said. "He plays and that's competition and that's fair competition in my opinion".

Marquinhos' versatility, which enables him to play in midfield or in the heart of defence, may come in handy for the second leg as the Parisians may look to sit deep and frustrate Manchester United at the Parc des Princes. He was so frustrated with his inability to get forward effectively or dictate play from deep that he ended up getting himself sent off late on.

Starting XI: De Gea (7); Young (7), Bailly (7), Lindelof (6), Shaw (7); Matic (8*), Herrera (6), Pogba (4); Lingard (5), Martial (6), Rashford (7). It showed they are a real team, even if they will probably need Neymar and Cavani back if they are to get beyond the quarterfinals for the first time in their history.

But they did. PSG's injury-hit team went to Manchester, saw what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men had for them, and conquered. The Chilean was largely anonymous after coming on as a first-half substitute and afterwards Solskjaer insisted it was up to him to get back to his best. He knew United were short there, and they still are. After that, they welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford the following Sunday.
