Edinson Cavani isn't expected to shake off a hip problem, Thomas Meunier is concussed, and Neymar is out with a broken metatarsal.

"If you had asked me before they had this moment, I would say "OK, say PSG are favourites" but now I think it's hard".

Despite the introduction of Romelu Lukaku, alongside the likes of Paul Pogba, Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata, the home side were toothless in the final third as they tried to claw their way back into the game having fallen behind.

Ever since they came under the transformative patronage of Qatari wealth in 2011, PSG have regularly outspent nearly every European heavyweight, but never gone beyond the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

But Solskjaer has reignited United's top-four challenge since being appointed manager until the end of the season. I want us to be able to help him with good passes. Tenacious in the tackle and composed in possession, the Brazilian epitomised the guts shown every player in a white shirt at Old Trafford.

At the other end they were benefiting from the fact that PSG were too often leaving Mbappe to fend for himself, hoping for a bit of magic from the World Cup victor rather than putting numbers around him to keep United on their toes.

Brown was speaking at a Manchester United foundation event to launch new film The Kid Who Would Be King, which carries a message of the value of teamwork.

Solskjaer scooped the manager of the month award for January with Marcus Rashford taking the player of the month gong. City boss Pep Guardiola refuses to discount United, who are 14 points behind them, from the current title race.

Tuchel hinted that United's current form makes them favourites for the first leg on Tuesday, but warned his side to remain in the tie for the return in Paris on March 6.

"At first they frightened me because of how loud they were but after I had realised what was going on and what they were doing it was quite fun to watch".

Through nine Premier League games under the Norwegian, United are averaging a sky-high 2.56 goals per game, compared to just 1.71 under Jose.

Porto have won their last five Champions League matches to match a club record and claimed 16 points - more than any other team in the group phase.

"They've done well together in a few games".

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