It comes most weeks, in some shape or form, but this time, with Paris Saint-Germain's visit to Old Trafford starting a run of three huge games for the Manchester United caretaker manager, it seemed pertinent.

Aside from the handful of half-chances, the match was marked by physical play.

"When you get to this stage of the tournament, with the floodlights on, these are the games that you really look forward to". We are playing like a team, we are agreeing on how we should approach games. "There are smiles back on everyone's faces, not just on the pitch but at Carrington and Old Trafford, so he himself has brought that back".

"There are only top-level teams, with a lot of experience in that competition".

"I've found out what kind of team we have".

However, it was the former United No.7 who had the last laugh.

While the losses of Martial and Lingard to injury forced a rethink, there shouldn't have been the drop-off in performance which followed as PSG started to turn the screw. Their last win came in March 2016, a 2-1 win against Chelsea that saw them advance through in the 2015-16 UCL.

Anyway, back to tonight's game. But trips Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Liverpool in the past two seasons have also ended in defeat.

At the time when the draw was initially announced, the eventual result looked like a no-brainer with the French giants easily expected to complete a thorough work off their opponents.

Mbappe's meteoric rise, from teenage sensation with Monaco to the world's second-most expensive player at PSG and, most likely, United's biggest headache, has been as mesmerising as Martial's ups and downs became a source of prolonged frustration for United supporters. The Brazilian worldwide is expected to return in April.

While Pogba lost his place in the side under Mourinho, the Frenchman has been performing excellently under Solskjaer, with Wenger suggesting that the midfielder's lack of discipline meant that he struggled under Mourinho's demands.

In contrast, United got an injury boost with Victor Lindelof able to train on Monday, with Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian the only absentees with minor knocks. The man who delivered the trophy with his last-gasp goal in the final 20 years ago has aspirations to be the permanent boss at United and knocking out PSG would be a significant boost for his CV.

United are now in fourth place in the Premier League and face Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
