Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said Manchester United were ‘very poor compared to the class of PSG’ last night, as Solskjaer’s men suffered a damaging 2-0 defeat which could see them crash out of the Champions League this season.

Wenger, who has come up against United more times than most during his distinguished career, said the difference in class was noticeable.  

“The technical understanding between the two teams was huge, It became bigger as the game went on. Manchester United played at home and had one shot on goal in a Champions League match. That, of course, tells you about the difference between the two teams.

“In the Champions League it’s important that you cannot be dominated in the midfield. The whole evening, Manchester United were dominated there.

“Paris Saint Germain played with five midfielders and they never lost the ball. Manchester United could never win the ball back. That’s because PSG dominated the midfield to win the ball back.

“When you are at home and lose the battle in midfield, you are always in trouble. Manchester United looked very poor compared to the class of PSG.”

PSG impressed in Manchester last night, managing to assert their authority in a game when many expected them to struggle without key players such as Edinson Cavani and Neymar. As it was, Kylian Mbappe and Angel Di Maria stepped up to the plate to put the French champions in a strong position heading into the second leg.
