Man-Utd-PSG: Neymar and Cavani give Tuchel tactical headache

After winning the Premier League manager of the month for January, Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to be rewarded further.

Manchester United star, Paul Pogba, may have gone through a miserable spell during Jose Mourinho's last days as the Red Devils manager.

Central defender, Phil Jones, who recently penned a contract extension with the Old Trafford outfit which will see him remain at the club until 2023, has detailed how things have changed at the club.

"He [Martial] does have similarities with Ronaldo, of course", Solskjaer was quoted by BBC Sport as saying. "But to assess it over 180 minutes, we have the second leg in Paris where we feel very strong and comfortable at Parc des Princes, then yes I'd say it's a 50/50 game".

"There is a little bit of hope, though, because there is always hope".

Manchester United take on PSG in the first leg of their mega-tie on Tuesday evening at Old Trafford.

Mourinho was sacked on December 18 with United 11 points adrift of the Champions League places.

Young, who moved to Old Trafford from Aston Villa as a winger in 2011, has played the majority of this campaign at right-back, having played much of last season at left-back.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, caretaker manager Solskjaer said that he wants his side to continue their ascent up the Premier League table. The midfielder has been involved in more goals in Europe's top five leagues than anyone else in that time.

Angel Di Maria could be key to overcoming Neymar and Cavani's absences and Draxler is wary of the Argentina international's bitter history with United.

Looking back on his two years working with Ferguson, Young went on to acknowledge how lucky he was to have played under the former United boss.

Asked by reporters if wins over PSG and Liverpool - either side of an FA Cup fifth-round trip to Chelsea - would get him the job full-time, he added: "You have so many ways [of asking that question]".

If the Sweden worldwide is passed fit he is likely to start against the French champions at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
