PSG show there's nothing to fear without Neymar, says Mbappe

Football is played on the field.

"It's not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar, he can't be himself and the other two at the same time", warned Tuchel.

The Red Devils were stunned by the French champions in their Champions League round of 16 showdown, despite PSG being without Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

No club has ever recovered from losing the first leg of a Champions League tie by two goals or more and still progressed.

Thomas Tuchel's side gradually gained the ascendancy - with Marco Verratti and Marquinhos dominant in midfield - and Mbappe should have hit the target when he was slipped through by Julian Draxler in the 28th minute but fired wide.

"I've found out what kind of team we have". "However, it is only half-time".

Russell Westbrook Ties Wilt Chamberlain With 9th Straight Triple-Double
The Thunder matched the Rockets' 42-point second quarter with a 42-point third period, keyed by 7-for-12 3-point shooting. Serge Ibaka registered a double-double (15 points and 13 rebounds) for the Raptors, who have won four consecutive games.

"The ground he made up to get in the box, for all the strikers and coaches out there, that's how you get in the box", Solskjaer said of the 20-year-old. He has overseen the return to form of Rashford, Pogba and Martial but if he does something about Alexis Sanchez maybe then United can get serious about a permanent position. We played with character and strong mentality.

Is this an over-reaction to one bad night or is it a necessary corrective to the hysteria which had followed a series of impressive performances against mediocre teams following the departure of a manager who shattered the confidence of many of his players? "I am happy with what I did with [Manchester United midfielder Paul] Pogba, but I am still focused on our collective win".

Solskjaer was in no mood to pull his punches with the Chilean, saying: "I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez".

"For me, to feel these emotions, to share them with my teammates, it is something that I can not be without".

"When we go down there to Paris, we'll give it a go".

Captain Thiago Silva admitted his satisfaction at silencing some of PSG's critics and a tight defensive display.

"As skipper, this gives me great satisfaction because we get a lot of criticism", said the Brazil global.

"The support was incredible", the Germany worldwide said. "Even during the warm-up, there were so many people!"

Chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi reflected the delight of PSG's Qatari owners, but also warned that it is not over just yet.

"Tuchel told me that it was going to be different, that I was going to touch the ball a lot less", Mbappe said to RMC Sport. We have to help him with the right support and good service. Top four is one thing, but Manchester United should be at the top'.

"We need to stop with the scare stories".
