Solskjaer 'confident' of Man Utd miracle in Paris

Solskjaer 'confident' of Man Utd miracle in Paris

United's 89th minute victor in their 3-2 victory against Southampton this weekend was just the latest indicator that the good times are back at Old Trafford.

Manchester United's uphill battle against Paris St Germain is set to be made all the more hard by up to 10 absentees, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirming Anthony Martial will be among those missing for Wednesday's crucial Champions League clash.

Three days after scoring twice in a 3-1 victory over Crystal Palace, Lukaku again proved the difference for United with another double.

Still, Solskjaer pledged to fight at PSG and try to secure a famous away win akin to the semi-final triumph that saw Juventus beaten 3-2 on the way to the treble in 1999.

According to the Daily Star, Duncan said: "In De Gea's case, De Gea wanted to sign a new contract at Manchester United a couple of seasons ago". "We felt every game we were in with a chance to win - and the belief is here now". At the time (of his appointment) Ed Woodward probably thought: "I'm going to get him as a stop-gap " and I was of the same thinking.

"And I think Manchester United, from what I gather, are confident that they will be able to get a deal through on lesser terms". As a manager, that is not the way you want to enjoy the first 90 minutes.

Liverpool remain on top with 5-1 win
The England global was left on the bench for Liverpool FC's goalless draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford last weekend. Sadio Mane has beaten his best Premier League goal haul of 13 (2016-17) with his double against Watford.

Manchester United started the game on the front foot and created a couple of quick opportunities in the first ten minutes. They settled down and scored with two unbelievable strikes.

"We know it is going to be hard, we played them here and they are a good team, and we have got loads of injuries, there's a few boys here that will want to be part of it".

United, who lost Alexis Sanchez to injury, had overturned Yan Valery's opener through Andreas Pereira and Lukaku only to see the lead slip away. "He has got the goalscorer's quality".

That makes it two Premier League braces in a row for Lukaku, as he also put two crucial goals past Crystal Place at Selhurst Park last gameweek.

"We want to just improve everyone, because that's our job and the better we do, the bigger chance there is for us to be here". But I didn't expect him - and Ed Woodward wouldn't have either - to do what he has done.

Marcus Rashford headed just wide when reaching the substitute's cross, before the Portuguese provided an assist for a goal that Pereira will rightly take the plaudits for.
