But late in the first half, Di Maria's end was up.

PSG may have been without Neymar and Edinson Cavani but they boasted a player with a point to prove against United.

Manchester United fans responded by pelting Di Maria with water bottle while taking a corner-kick.

The Argentine star joined Man United for a big-money fee worth £59.7million in 2014 from Real Madrid.

The Argentine appeared to shout "f*** off" at United fans, moments after PSG took the lead at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Di Maria stayed down for an extended period of time while players argued with each other and complained to the referee Daniele Orsato. He showed no lack of desire in getting to the ball but it was noticeable that he was often being shadowed by Marquinhos whenever United were in possession, a clear sign of PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel attempting to shackle the World Cup victor.

Angel Di Maria created quite a buzz on Tuesday night at Old Trafford, both with his scintillating display on the field and also with his goal celebration. One user commented that the player had "turned Old Trafford into a pub".

Collecting the ball wide left, Di Maria's perfectly-weighted centre left Mbappe with no option but to score after the Frenchman had burst past an unknowing United defence.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter users did not pass up the opportunity to remind United fans of not only Di Maria's return, but what happened on the pitch. He [Di Maria] was a bit nervous and needed to be calmer in the first half.

United's woe was intensified when Paul Pogba was sent off late on in the second half for a second yellow card following a lunge on Dani Alves. "If you tease him, it does not make him weaker", he said, Sky Sports reported.

But Di Maria held on to laugh last after spearheading United's first defeat under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solkjaer. 90 more minutes are missing To continue working for what is coming.
