Man Utd Boss Reserve Special Praise For Pogba

The Champions League last-16 tie is so deliciously hard to call that Blanc, a former United defender and PSG coach, looks nearly physically pained when pushed to pick a victor.

During their 1-0 win over Bordeaux this weekend, PSG suffered two more injuries to players who would have started at Old Trafford.

"Since Ole [Gunnar Solskjaer] came in we talked about this, we want to be at the top, in the top four", he told Sky Sports after the game.

"It's a winning identity, it's a confident identity".

Solskjaer has been credited for getting the best out of United's star players and for his preferred style of play, which harks back to the glory days under Ferguson.

Worryingly for PSG, it is not a naive approach exclusively based on bombing forward.

Manchester United have beaten Arsenal and Tottenham during their impressive unbeaten run under Solskjaer so far.

While Mourinho butted heads with and routinely dropped Paul Pogba, Solskjaer has built his side around the French World Cup victor, with stunning results.

The visitors were now in complete control against a Fulham side looking more and more likely to find themselves playing Championship football next season.

"I've just spoken to him", Solskjaer said of Glazer. "It is a pleasure to play again". Once the actual job does come if it were to come, the questions would start to change and become a lot more serious. In United's last European home game against Young Boys, the Portuguese coach did not hide his disgust when he missed an early chance.

He has scored eight goals and five assists under the Norwegian tactician since his arrival in December.

It was Pogba who was named the man of the match, with his two goals - first an emphatic left-footed strike from a hard angle and the second his typical spot-kick - taking his overall Premier League goal tally of the season to 11.

The decibel level has risen since Solskjaer's arrival, even for humble opposition in Huddersfield, Bournemouth, Reading, Brighton and Burnley.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks Manchester United's 3-0 win at Fulham was the ideal preparation for Tuesday's Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain.
