Man United out of Champions League? PSG Match Review

Ole Gunner Solskjær has just recorded his first defeat as Interim Manager of Manchester United and I’m afraid to say the team looked toothless across the pitch.

During the opening few minutes of the match the team looked poised to get something from the game. Pressing and closing down high up the pitch; it was evident the team were given instructions to press high and put veteran goalkeeper ‘Gigi’ Buffon under pressure and quickly close him down. However, as the game went on and PSG gained a foothold in the game and began to dominate, the pressing stopped and the intensity from the squad was not good enough.

Pogba was kept quiet throughout the entire game before his sending off, but especially in the first as Marquinhos was providing a fantastic, specific man marking role; somewhat similar to Herrera’s owning of Hazard a few seasons ago.

Injury blows for United as both Lingard and Martial both went off injured throughout the night. Jesse Lingard went off in the first half with what looked to be a hamstring injury and was replaced by the highest paid substitute in Alexis Sanchez. In regards to Anthony Martial, the Frenchman was replaced by Juan Mata at the break as he pulled up with what looked like a groin injury around the half hour mark earlier in the game.

PSG made it 0-1 at 53′ minutes and scored again on the hour mark as both Kimpembe and Mbappe scored for the French champions.

Manchester United looked toothless throughout with Marcus Rashford looking increasingly frustrated with the level of service provided. They barely tested Buffon in goal and will undoubtedly be disappointed by their performance tonight. The game at Old Trafford would’ve been one of the best chances to have beaten the french side as they were without players such as: Neymar, Cavani and Meunier.

Manchester United need to regroup quickly for their FA Cup tie against Chelsea to maintain any ambition of staying in a cup competition as their run in the Champions League looks all but gone. With both Lingard and Martial both potential doubts for that fixture the squad already looks bare in positions and incomings are needed in the summer like they were in the January window but were overlooked instead focusing on extending some dubious players’ contracts.
