Preview: PSG vs Manchester United

Wednesday night sees Manchester United travel to Paris to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the second leg of their Champions League fixture in which the Red Devils are currently trailing by two goals.

Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku are expected to both start with Solskjaer set to alter the formation of the side and deploy either Fred or Andreas Pereira in the middle to replace the suspended Paul Pogba.

Manchester United are not expected to win on Wednesday due to the gulf of class shown in the first fixture between the two sides as well as the recent injury crisis that has hit united leaving them missing many first team players.

Solskjaer will hope for a positive performance ahead of a very important few weeks for the club as they travel to The Emirates in a crucial game in the race for top four before heading to Wolves in the quarter- finals of the FA Cup to allow the possibility of silverware this season a reality.
