"We were off to a good start", Bailly said after the match.

"Football is played on the pitch and it's clear that Neymar is very important, that Edinson Cavani is fundamental but football is played on the pitch and today we have shown that".

Yes, it was a disappointing defeat on a flat night at Old Trafford, but that is not a reflection on Ole - more a reminder of how far this United team is from being a side that can win the Champions League.

The game itself was an even contest for most of the first half, though PSG took control in the second as United struggled to adapt after losing Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard to injury.

I thought that after they lost at home to Juventus in October and, although they now have a different manager, as a team they are still in exactly the same place, which is well behind the leading European sides.

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.

"I think we have to lose the virginity in this competition this season once and for all".

"We will give it a go".

The ex-Arsenal manager was working as a pundit for beIN Sports on Tuesday night and he pinpointed exactly how PSG were able to quell Man United's biggest threat.

United went into the game with an unblemished record of 10 wins and a draw since the appointment of their interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the 24-year-old claimed that they were not overconfident.

"We had many midfielders and we are used to playing with more forwards so we had to adapt". "They are teams that are as good as PSG, so we will go there to try and make it hard for them". "I think the past is the past, and you create history, don't tell them".

United did hold their own in the first half of a frenetic match but PSG dealt with what they had to offer.

'Mourinho wanted discipline from everybody. He knew United were short there, and they still are.

What they need is a player who is going to have a positive impact on the players around him, in the same way Virgil van Dijk's arrival has transformed Liverpool's back four. United though did bounce back from that by then winning in Turin against the Italian champions 2-1.
