Ander Herrera believes United can stage a comeback against PSG

Ander Herrera believes United can stage a comeback against PSG

PSG lost 5-2 on aggregate to Real Madrid in the last 16 a year ago and in 2016-17 they were on the end of one of football's greatest ever comebacks, Barcelona overturning a 4-0 first-leg deficit to progress.

United will be without its French playmaker in the second leg on March 6 in Paris after he received a second yellow card in the 89th minute for a lunge on Dani Alves.

"It was a new system and we weren't really used to it", Mbappe said. "Our players today, are disappointed, of course, but I also think they know we need to step up our level to get to the level we want to get to", added the Norwegian after suffeiong his first defeat since taking over 12 games ago in December.

For all PSG's injury problems, a double blow also rocked United in the seconds before half-time and at the break as Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial limped off to be replaced by Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata.

Tennessee: The Lady Vols were on a roll coming into Starkville, winning three straight after starting SEC play with a 1-5 record. The way the Bulldogs looked Sunday, especially with their 30-point fourth quarter, it's clear they can play with anyone.

The French Champions were without Brazilian star Neymar Junior, Edinson Cavani, and Thomas Meunier - all of them are likely to be available for the return leg whiles United will be without Paul Pogba who was sent off late in the game for a second bookable offence.

They started to control the game.

But it remained to be seen whether he would flourish on his first game back at the Theatre of Dreams, or shrink as he often did during his brief spell with the Premier League giants.

United, who won ten and drew the other of Solksjaer's first 11 matches, went behind in the 53rd minute when they switched off as Di Maria whipped in a corner for Presnel Kimpembe to steal in at the far post and smack home an unstoppable volley. "It's not going to be a season-defining one for us".

Liverpool’s improvement is clear to see, says Wijnaldum
The demands of the Premier League title race have not surprised Georginio Wijnaldum or his Liverpool teammates. The third goal, scored by Mohammed Salah, proves just how effective this connection was.

"At this club you bounce back, you have to bounce back", he said. United need a coach to make a difference at this level, in the way that Tuchel did by overcoming injury and tactical headaches to secure victory.

Di Maria then appeared to be the target of a bottle thrown from a section of home fans but he defused the situation by pretending to take a drink from it.

The home side never recovered their composure as PSG produced a stunning second-half display to all but book their place in the last eight despite David de Gea's best efforts in the United goal. When they got that one, it was a poor goal to give away.

Capable of playing left-back or left-wing, he would fill a problematic spot on the flank for United if he does move this summer. The goalkeeper is out of contract at the end of the 2020 season, with Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain sniffing around.
