Second half strikes from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe gave the French champions two away goals that could turn out to be pivotal within the context of the tie.

A loss for the Red Devils was compounded by the late dismissal of Paul Pogba, who will miss the second leg at the Parc des Princes, and Solskjaer lamented a gulf in class between the sides.

United started brightly, with the front three of Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, and Anthony Martial buzzing around from the off.

"Today we weren't at the level, this is a level up from what we have played against".

The Chilean was brought on just before half-time of United's 2-0 defeat against PSG on Tuesday night in the Champions League last 16 first leg, but was largely ineffective for the hosts.

Their final league position, in particular, is what actually will define United's season and I am sure that is the way Ole will look at it too, when he decides on his priorities in the next few weeks.

"Manchester United should be at the top and this is a top team we've played against".

You may have something to look forward to once the initial rush is over, especially if hints of solo and duo modes prove accurate. In fact, the game is doing so well, it's resurrected the playerbase of Respawn's last game, too.

Manchester United's run of big games continues as their next fixture sees them travel to Chelsea on Saturday for a Fifth Round FA Cup tie. "The players are disappointed but I also think they know we need to step up our level to get to the level we want to get to".

"I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez", he said, according to the Mirror. They did not have a central defensive partnership of the quality of Thiago Silva and Kimpembe, a midfielder of the quality of Marco Verratti or even Marquinhos, or a player with the speed, skill and strength of Mbappe.

"Man United played at home and had one shot on goal in a Champions League game - that tells you the difference between the two teams. If you tease him it does not make him weaker", said Tuchel.

Mourinho left Manchester United in sixth place in the Premier League table and 11 points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea FC.

He wrote on Instagram, in French: "I will write in French for some pseudo supporters of PSG that exist only in social networks and they don't understand English because the true PSG fans are what I heard last night from the beginning until the end of the match".

United have got decent defenders like Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof, who is another player that has been impressive under Solskjaer, but both of them would be better alongside a really commanding centre-half.
