Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe struck second-half goals to put PSG in a commanding position ahead of the second leg at Parc des Princes on March 6. "But considering how many players we were missing and others not in great shape, it was great to win here in these circumstances".

'It was an even game and it's always going to be hard against good teams.

"The reality is Jesse and Anthony are part of our squad playing really well but in the second half we didn't have as much movement and couldn't get in behind", added Solskjaer, who will assess Lingard and Martial's fitness in the next couple of days. It is not over yet as there is the second leg at home, which we need to focus on.

Solskjaer has passed all of the tests he has faced as United manager with flying colours so far, but there are still no signs of him getting the job full-time, however were he to negotiate a path into the quarter finals of the Champions League, it would be nearly impossible to deny him the opportunity to become the permanent successor to Mourinho.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed he will struggle to reverse Alexis Sanchez's faltering career after another woeful display from the Manchester United forward against Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester United will have to make history to qualify for the next stage of the competition. "When he plays, he needs to find himself because we know there's a quality player there".

Asked about Sanchez - who has only scored five goals since swapping Premier League rivals Arsenal for United in January 2018 - caretaker manager Solskjaer told reporters: "I can't do anything about Alexis. Whoever feels sorry for themselves will not play probably against Chelsea".

United could face a UEFA probe after it emerged unpopular former winger Angel Di Maria was struck by a bottle thrown from the crowd.

No team in the history of the Champions League has failed to progress after winning 2-0 away from home in the first leg of a knockout tie. We were not used to it.

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

"We're happy, but it's only half-time in the tie and we need to continue preparing well, because I think in the last 20 minutes we dropped off a bit physically".
