Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Reacts To Paul Pogba's Red Card

Manchester United are not getting "the Alexis Sanchez we fell in love with at Arsenal", says Phil Neville, with the Chilean putting in another forgettable performance against Paris Saint-Germain.

Former Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has thrown his weight behind Jose Mourinho over Paul Pogba's negative attitude and indiscipline while at Manchester United. The second goal, that was quality by them.

The midfielder himself had only just returned from injury a few days before Tuesday's crunch match and therefore, was only expected to play around an hour or so of the game.

The collision floored Sanchez who recovered sufficiently to replace Lingard moments before half-time, but he informed United's coaching staff that he had suffered a leg injury above the knee. De Gea prevented Di Maria, unaware offside would be called, to a huge cheer that was only beaten when Young barged his former team-mate out of play and into the metal fence surrounding the pitch.

Interestingly French newspaper RMC claim that it might not be the home team that face punishment but in fact the player, and even claim he could be banned.

Solskjaer is capable of transforming the fortunes of players - just look at Pogba.

But as of Wednesday, more than 1,000 recovery commands had been sent to Opportunity - with no reply. And one day, NASA hopes rover tracks will be alongside human footprints on the Red Planet.

Second-half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe ensured that PSG will be firm favourites to progress ahead of the return leg in Paris but Solskjaer has not given up hope of causing a shock at Parc des Princes.

"I don't know why [Neville] said that", Schmeichel said, also speaking to beIN Sports . Pogba scored twice in United's 3-0 win against Fulham over the weekend.

"It was one of those experiences that can go either way", Solskjaer said. "It has to be one that we're going to learn from".

Barring an incredible comeback in the French capital in three weeks' time, United will miss out on the Champions League quarter-finals for the fifth straight year.

A repeat of that 3-0 win in Paris next month would take United through to the quarterfinals.

Despite PSG running away with the Ligue 1 title, Tuchel will be judged by how PSG do in the Champions League. This is a level up from what we have played against with the games we've had.
