Manchester United suffer heaviest home European loss

When the reality check came for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, it wasn't even handed out by a full-strength Paris Saint-Germain. The game was Solskjaer's first outing in Europe since taking charge.

Second half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe were enough to hand Paris Saint-Germain a comfortable lead to take to the Parc de Princes as Manchester United hardly mustered a sustained spell of offence in the game. However, the Norwegian was left frustrated after watching Kimpembe score the first from Angel Di Maria's corner after being fortunate to escape a second yellow card before the half time.

The second goal, on the hour, was the culmination of an electric counterattack. "Perfect, it will be after the qualification", he said. "It was a nice comeback for him". "Today we weren't at the level, this is a level up from what we've played against". I'm happy he stayed confident.

Without two of its usual front three, the French league leaders commanded the midfield instead, with Marco Verratti often the orchestrator.

Solskajaer said: 'You could see we have not played at this level for a while. "We had a lot of midfielders and not many forwards". We needed a little time to adapt. "When he plays, he needs to find himself because we know there's a quality player there".

"Paul Pogba looks like one of the best players in the world, [Anthony] Martial, [Marcus] Rashford".

The English giants will also have to cope without Paul Pogba in three weeks' time as he was sent off for two yellow cards a minute from time to round off a bad night for the hosts.

■ NICOLO ZANIOLO'S double sealed a 2-1 win for Roma over Porto in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie at the Stadio Olimpico.

AS Roma 2 (Nicolo Zaniolo 70', 76') FC Porto 1 (Adrian Lopez 79') HT: 0-0.

United's lackluster performance was a continuation of the European form under Mourinho in the group stage.

The Parisians despite playing away from home scored twice in the second half of the Champions League round-of-16 fixture at Old Trafford. "It has to be one that we're going to learn from".

United now have a mountain to climb to qualify for the Champions League quarter-finals, thanks in no small part to their former number seven.

There has been much clamour for the 45-year-old to be confirmed as permanent manager, understandably so considering his immediate impact, but it will perhaps be the coming weeks that will define United's season and in turn his potential future at the club.

The Red Devils moved into the top four for the first time this season after a 3-0 win against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
