Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised his Manchester United squad for their stunning 2-1 win at Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Tuesday night. The Red Devils were looking to secure a decent draw after Bruno Fernandes‘ opener was canceled out by an own goal from Anthony Martial in the second half. Marcus Rashford then struck late to secure yet another stunning victory in Paris, 19 months after they managed to complete a historic last-16 comeback against PSG.
“I think the performance was good, I thought we deserved to win,” United boss Solskjaer said after the game. “We created chances. Of course we lost Eric (Bailly), we lost Harry (Maguire), Mason (Greenwood) isn’t ready yet. We made a little change. We’ve got players that can play split strikers and thought they could do some damage.”
“Axel (Tuanzebe) in his first game in 10 months, Alex (Telles) on his debut, so we don’t really want to play a back four so we played a back three, or back five – call it whatever you like – and I thought it worked well. It’s a better performance this time than last, even though we won 3-1. The performance this time, we showed we have developed. Scott (McTominay) and Fred were outstanding.”
