Di Maria on Man Utd struggles: Thank God for PSG

Manchester United host PSG on Tuesday night in the first leg of their Champions League with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aiming to continue his flying start as manager.

Omitted from France's squad for last summer's World Cup finals, Martial was forced to watch from home as the man who filled the void left by his exit from Monaco for United in 2015 fired his country to glory in Russian Federation. Our players are more than capable. Their resurgent form under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been truly phenomenal with Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford in purple patches of their own.

Mourinho wanted to sell Martial and bring in the 30-year-old Chelsea winger Willian last summer.

Fellaini said of that contest: "I think Manchester United are the favourites". "Perhaps it is easier to play this style of football and not the style of football (Mourinho) asked".

His time in England was also marred by an attempted burglary on his family's home outside Manchester that reportedly left his wife and daughter terrified, and keen to get away.

"He is asking me to attack more". Things are working out well for the other attackers [too] and I hope we can continue to be as effective.

Minnesota Democratic Senator Amy Klobuchar has announced she is running for president in the 2020 election. She's citing the need to "heal the heart of our democracy and renew our commitment to the common good".

"When our new coach came in he had a lot of confidence, a lot of determination, that was really helpful", he said. We are trying to pay him back in kind. "Obviously, there is an effect", the former Borussia Dortmund boss said.

Manchester United: Since taking over in mid-December, United has won 10 games and drawn one in the 11 matches he's coached. Martial's superb solo goal in the 3-0 victory was his 11th of the campaign and evoked memories of Ronaldo's victor over Fulham in 2007.

"I've known Paul for a long time and I have played against him for Germany against France and sometimes we have managed to stop him", he said. PSG still has Kylian Mbappe but no true replacement as a No. 9 striker. It promises to the biggest test yet of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly's renaissance.

In what promises to be a decisive part of the season for Solskjaer and his players, Manchester United will welcome Liverpool FC to Old Trafford on 28 February as they look to halt their rivals' title charge. There will be moments when we'll defend because I expect a very attacking Manchester, very courageous, with many attacking players. It's been like night and day, as he's turned this team into a risky one like in seasons past.

Fred, meanwhile, has not played for United since their 2-0 win over Reading in the FA Cup on January 5 and didn't even make the squad for the victory against Fulham at the weekend. "That said, we are here to score - that is clear".
