Why Ole Gunnar has no doubt about Tanguy Ndombele

Why Ole Gunnar has no doubt about Tanguy Ndombele

TNT will broadcast the Manchester United versus PSG game in English, and Univision Deportes will air it in Spanish in the United States. - Since the start of the 2016-17 season, only Cristiano Ronaldo (16 goals) has scored more goals in Champions League knockout matches than PSG's Kylian Mbappe (seven). That wasn't the case when this fixture was confirmed with Jose Mourinho as manager.

UNITED have enjoyed an incredible turnaround under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Ole Gunnar Solsjkær has restored United's self-belief in spectacular style, winning 11 of his first 12 games as interim boss. Tenacious in the tackle and composed in possession, the Brazilian epitomised the guts shown every player in a white shirt at Old Trafford.

Reaction to Ashley Young's one-year contract extension may have been lukewarm last week, but Manchester United fans are now showering their defender in praise following an incident with Angel Di Maria.

"He [Solskjaer] was a super risky player, any time he came on he was there to win games and he does the same as a manager here". And that was enough for the Argentine hit man to be derided, booed and targeted with projectiles at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

"Those kinds of players, you don't really know where or how to block them, because they can create so much space, they can dribble [past] two players, they can score goals. He's right", said PSG coach Tuchel.

If he emerges with two victories from those three games, his claims on the job will be even stronger, but the way things are going, he might win them all.

"It was one of those experiences that can go either way", Solskjaer said.

Paris Saint-Germain must cope without the injured Neymar and Edison Cavani to halt the surge of a revitalised Manchester United if the French champions are to avoid more pain in the Champions League last 16.

David de Gea was tested for the first time in the 53rd minute, diving low to his left to push away Mbappe's header, but PSG opened the scoring from the resulting corner.

"We've given ourselves the best possible opportunity with the way we've gone into this game because we are confident", added the Norwegian.
