Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lost for the first time as Manchester United caretaker manager as Paris Saint-Germain ran out 2-0 winners in the Champions League last-16 first leg at Old Trafford, with Paul Pogba sent off late on.

After a heated first half, the visitors were clinical with two quick-fire goals; first Presnel Kimpembe turned home at the far post from an Angel Di Maria corner (53), before Kylian Mbappe finished off from another Di Maria assist (60), giving United a huge task to overcome.

It would have been more but for some fine goalkeeping from David de Gea, but matters were made worse when Pogba was dismissed late on for a second yellow card, meaning he will miss the second leg.

Player ratings

Man Utd: De Gea (7), Young (4), Bailly (5), Lindelof (5), Shaw (6), Pogba (5), Matic (6), Herrera (6), Lingard (6), Rashford (6), Martial (4)

Subs: Alexis (4), Mata (6), Lukaku (N/A)

PSG: Buffon (7), Kehrer (7), Thiago Silva (8), Kimpembe (7), Bernat (7), Marquinhos (8), Veratti (7), Alves (7), Draxler (7), Di Maria (8), Mbappe (8)

Subs: Maksimovic (7), Dagba (N/A)

Man of the match: Thiago Silva

 

United registered just one shot on target as Solskjaer was defeated having gone unbeaten in his first 11 games, meaning an uphill task in the second leg at Parc des Princes on Wednesday, March 6.

There were five yellow cards in a fiery first 45 minutes as both sides cancelled each other out, but the best of the chances did fall to the visitors. Former United midfielder Di Maria curled wide from range early on, before Mbappe slid in to poke wide under pressure from De Gea after being played through on goal by Julian Draxler.
