Lingard and Martial doubts for Chelsea game

Lingard and Martial doubts for Chelsea game

When the reality check came for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, it wasn't even handed out by a full-strength Paris Saint-Germain.

"For me Verratti, because he was not fit, because he was not 100 percent, because he's only played one game in the last month", Laurens told the BBC when asked who his standout performer was.

Following the full-time whistle, the Norwegian said it was up to Sanchez himself to figure out how to regain the kind of scintillating form that convinced United to pay him £391,000 a week.

And Solskjaer chose to bring on Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata in their place.

The Red Devils had contained the Ligue 1 champions at Old Trafford until Presnel Kimpembe turned home Angel Di Maria's corner in the 53rd minute in the first leg of the last-16 tie.

Solskjaer insisted his United side must treat their chastening defeat as a learning experience and demanded a response ahead of Monday's FA Cup fifth round trip to Chelsea and their following Premier League game at home to title challengers Liverpool.

The 56-year-old will give analysis at the ongoing Champions League tournament in the fortnightly football program.

Man United were forced to take off both Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial during their 2-0 defeat at the hands of PSG on Tuesday.

Di Maria was signed by United in the summer of 2014 for a blockbuster fee, a then British record £59.7 million. This considered, United's frustration that the referee then made a decision to send Paul Pogba off (he'll now miss the return in Paris) for a second bookable offence in the closing stages was obvious. "It will be hard and it's a mountain to climb but it's not impossible". "That's the level we want to get to". "Mourinho wanted discipline from everyone and that is defendable as well and so that's maybe (why) Pogba, as we have seen in recent games, has performed well".

'They are teams that are as good as PSG, so we will go there to try and make it hard for them'.
