Manchester United's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night lived up to its high expectations.

"I think this result is not going to hurt us because of the way we lost", he said.

Manchester United's run of big games continues as their next fixture sees them travel to Chelsea on Saturday for a Fifth Round FA Cup tie.

Second half strikes from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe gave the French champions two away goals that could turn out to be pivotal within the context of the tie. "That's the level we want to get to".

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

PSG also inflicted the heaviest home European loss on United, who were left with a mountain to climb ahead of the return leg in Paris on March 6.

Fifth Pebble Beach victory makes Mickelson's day
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am returns to the world famous Pebble Beach Golf Links on the Monterey Peninsula in California . As darkness descended on the course, Mickelson had just tapped in on the 16th green with Casey still to putt.

When the draw was announced and United were struggling under Jose Mourinho, that perception was the other way round.

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

Pogba has been the best player in the Premier League since Solskjaer took charge, and he has played a key role in setting up so many of United's goals as well as scoring some himself.

Marquinhos' versatility, which enables him to play in midfield or in the heart of defence, may come in handy for the second leg as the Parisians may look to sit deep and frustrate Manchester United at the Parc des Princes. The balls forward from Nemanja Matic, crosses from Ashley Young and surges from Pogba were all dealt with. They had 10 shots at goal but only one was on target (green arrow in right-hand graphic) which came from Marcus Rashford after eight minutes. "They are teams that are as good as PSG, so we will go there to try and make it hard for them". It showed they are a real team, even if they will probably need Neymar and Cavani back if they are to get beyond the quarterfinals for the first time in their history.

United were impressive in the first half, without creating much in front of goal. He knew United were short there, and they still are.

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. After that, they welcome Liverpool to Old Trafford the following Sunday.
