Combined XI: Manchester United vs. Paris Saint-Germain

Anthony Martial has played himself into United’s starting line-up to face PSG

Manchester United star, Paul Pogba, may have gone through a miserable spell during Jose Mourinho's last days as the Red Devils manager.

Angel Di Maria also makes the XI in the number 10 role, and he will have a point to prove against his former club having become one of the most high-profile United flops in recent years during one unhappy and unsuccessful season at Old Trafford.

"We have got a coach who has different intentions and we are trying to do what he asks", Martial, who scored his 11th goal of the season in the 3-0 win at Fulham on Saturday, said.

"You can't just place all the burden on him but we're talking about Kylian Mbappé - he has his own qualities, it's not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar, and he can't do all three things at the same time", said Tuchel.

United are a point clear of Chelsea and Arsenal, and nine points behind third-placed Tottenham after 26 Premier League matches.

Young was speaking ahead of United's first leg last-16 clash against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday night , which will see the French champions arrive at Old Trafford.

Both players will miss the game at Old Trafford, with Cavani likely to skip the return leg as well.

"He is asking me to attack more".

Solskjaer's managerial record in domestic competitions with United speaks for itself, but Tuesday's match will be his first test against elite European competition.

But for now all the focus is on PSG - a tie in which United's hopes have been helped by injuries to key forwards Neymar and Edinson Cavani for the visitors.

While it seems nearly certain that Cavani will miss the first leg, RMC report that the player's entourage have even suggested the injury may be enough to keep him out of the return leg in the French capital on March 6.

Just after the hour-mark, Pogba would score again, this time from the penalty spot after Juan Mata was fouled in the box by Maxime Le Marchand, a player who had a game to forget. "I think our right-back thinks it is not too bad he will not be here".
