Solskjaer: Manchester United can't feel sorry for themselves after PSG loss

"We were off to a good start", Bailly said after the match.

French champions PSG are in pole position for a place in the quarterfinals, but Herrera said United and caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could take positives from their performance.

"Football is played on the pitch and it's clear that Neymar is very important, that Edinson Cavani is fundamental but football is played on the pitch and today we have shown that".

Despite the loss, Solskjær fully embraced the situation and is preparing ahead for their next Champions League encounter with PSG. Against a backdrop of boos, he proved it with a performance as energetic as his "swearing" celebration after the first goal. They were a team united.

In seven second-half minutes, when Presnel Kimpembe and then Kylian Mbappe scored, the French champions punctured the soaring confidence of everyone associated with United since the Norwegian took charge in December.

I think we have to accept that United are not good enough, and move on.

When this tie was announced, Manchester United were 11/5 to win this match with Ladbrokes, who priced PSG at 11/10 and the draw at 12/5.

Gavin Newsom To Scale Back, Not Abandon, California's High-Speed Rail
Newsom criticized "fear-mongering that's coming out of the White House", likening Trump's rhetoric on immigrants to George W. He appointed Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg to lead a new state commission focused on California's homeless crisis.

There has to be some realism about the level that this group of players is at, despite the way Solskjaer has improved them since replacing Jose Mourinho before Christmas.

"I can't do anything about Alexis Sanchez", said Solskjaer.

"I am not scared of any comeback, because if you are scare you can't reach any goal", Alves said.

United often found themselves overrun in midfield, with Marquinhos and Marco Verratti controlling the game for the most part. The Chilean was largely anonymous after coming on as a first-half substitute and afterwards Solskjaer insisted it was up to him to get back to his best.

What they need is a player who is going to have a positive impact on the players around him, in the same way Virgil van Dijk's arrival has transformed Liverpool's back four. However, the tempo of their play dropped significantly following the restart and they were deservedly punished.

The teams will face off March 6 in the second leg of their round-of-16 series.

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.
