Man-Utd-PSG: Neymar and Cavani give Tuchel tactical headache

Posted February 12, 2019

Manchester United defender Ashley Young has praised Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for his immediate impact at Old Trafford, likening him to club legend Sir Alex Ferguson.

Martial has been key to United's attacking approach under caretaker manager Solskjaer, who has started his reign at Old Trafford with 10 wins from 11 games.

"We know there's a very, very good player there with Fred so hopefully he'll adjust to the English game because there's no doubt there's talent, absolutely no doubt", he said last month.

On Pogba, Sanchez highlighted the difference in the player's confidence and production since Mourinho was replaced.

"He [Martial] does have similarities with Ronaldo, of course", Solskjaer was quoted by BBC Sport as saying.

"At the moment I'm just concentrating on getting us up the table now we are fourth and let's hope we can stay there".

"However, is he the man to win them the Champions League and the Premier League?".

"We were in extremely good shape when we ended our campaign in the group stage, then there was the draw and things have completely changed".

However, if stats are anything to go by, Pogba seems to be enjoying a new lease of life since the arrival of interim boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It is an all-PSG defence in front of him, though, including a spot for veteran full-back Dani Alves. The midfielder has been involved in more goals in Europe's top five leagues than anyone else in that time.

But injuries to Neymar and Cavani, and their opponent's sudden resurgence, have left them with a mountain to climb.

If the Sweden global is passed fit he is likely to start against the French champions at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. "I think our right-back thinks it is not too bad he will not be here".
