Di Maria turned provider yet again 7 minutes later as he exploited the gaps left by Manchester United on the left wing as they pushed up searching for an equalizer to tee up Kylian Mbappe for the French team's second of the night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær was handed his first defeat as United caretaker manager after the French club outclassed his side.

'Of course, Neymar is super-important and Cavani is fundamental, but football gets played on the pitch.

Maybe they can do the same in Paris, but few are expecting it after the reality check dished out by a team who have been built to win the Champions League. To reach our goals, either the Cup, the Champions or the Ligue 1. They were a team united.

"I think we have to lose the virginity in this competition this season once and for all".

It was Solskjaer's 12th game since he took over as interim manager from Jose Mourinho and his side were out-performed by superior opposition.

" Today who would dispute that Martial is indispensable for Man United?" The balls forward from Nemanja Matic, crosses from Ashley Young and surges from Pogba were all dealt with.

He's charged with committing a "gruesome kidnapping" that resulted in the death of 24-year-old Valerie Reyes , U.S. According to The Journal, Reyes had taken her iPad, iPhone, clothes and bed sheets with her when she disappeared.

But Tuchel recognised he was United's most influential player and used Marquinhos to nullify him completely. "Unfortunately, the second goal came next, so it's a shame".

Having a solid back-line like PSG's would make such a difference to the whole team and it is possible they could do that by making only one signing.

Defence is the area where I think United need to improve the most, especially at centre-back which is where they still look vulnerable.

United have got decent defenders like Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof, who is another player that has been impressive under Solskjaer, but both of them would be better alongside a really commanding centre-half. Tenacious in the tackle and composed in possession, the Brazilian epitomised the guts shown every player in a white shirt at Old Trafford. However, the tempo of their play dropped significantly following the restart and they were deservedly punished.

Can United plug the deficit in the second leg and progress to the next stage of the Champions League?

By virtue of a superb second half showing, PSG earned their first win against an English side in Europe since beating Chelsea 2-1 in March 2014.
