Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s toughest test to date is here. The Baby Faced Assassin’s task is a monumental one, he has to guide Manchester United past an in-form Paris Saint-Germain side who have a two-goal lead.
The Parc des Princes will be rocking, PSG have all the momentum, United have all the injuries. The odds are firmly stacked against the Red Devils, but this manager has us believing again.
Anyway, the starting line-up is in and Solskjaer has seemingly switched up the formation to a 5-3-2. United will want to play on the counter-attack and with the pace they have up front, there is the potential to hurt any defence in world football.
David de Gea will start in goal and no doubt he’ll have to enjoy one of those special nights if United are to progress.
Ashley Young captains the side at right-wingback, while Luke Shaw will play opposite him over on the left. Then comes the three-man centre-back partnership. Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling all play. These guys will have to be on their A-game to keep Kylian Mbappe and company quiet…
Scott McTominay has been secretly excellent recently and he more than deserves his place in the team. We’ll need a huge outing from Fred. His struggles have been well documented of late. Andreas Pereira is seemingly playing further afield. He’ll be tasked with carving out chances for the two strikers.
Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku is a pairing that has massive potetial. There’s pace, power, deadly finishing and hard work in abundance. We need these guys to show up and get an early goal to put United on the front foot.
