Martial: United players finding life easier under Solskjaer

Share

Solskjaer has restored pride and belief to Old Trafford since taking interim charge in December.

Uruguay striker Edinson Cavani was forced off at half-time of PSG's 1-0 win over Bordeaux on Saturday (Sunday NZT) with a hip problem that will keep him out of the United game and, with Neymar ruled out of both legs with a foot injury, Thomas Tuchel is likely to enlist the former United winger, Angel Di Maria, and Julian Draxler to assist Mbappe in attack.

"It's not about making a case for me to stay", he told Sky Sports.

"Everyone's got to take us seriously now", said Jones, who signed a new four-year deal with United this week. "We just want to go into this game confident and raise our game".

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

"Paul is still young and a World Cup victor", Solskjaer said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

TDP organised protests in various cities and towns in the state in protest against Modi's visit. On the occasion, the Prime Minister dedicated two petroleum and gas projects to the nation.

"I've said it in the past, we've not achieved anything yet, we're under no illusions but we're heading in the right direction". "It is a pleasure to play again".

Solskjaer's appointment has helped to get the best out of Martial along with his compatriot Paul Pogba and strike partner Marcus Rashford.

The France forward's talent has never been disputed during his time at Old Trafford but the 23-year-old has struggled to find a level of consistency. In United's last European home game against Young Boys, the Portuguese coach did not hide his disgust when he missed an early chance.

Solskjaer outlined his first task as putting smiles back on the players' faces but the feel-good factor has galvanised the fans just as much as his squad.

Mourinho spent most of his final season complaining that he had not been furnished with the experienced centre-back he demanded in pre-season, while chopping and changing his defence.

When the two sides were paired together in December's draw, PSG were strong favourites to make the last eight, with United mired in the final days of Jose Mourinho's troublesome tenure.
