Anthony Martial of Manchester United speaks during a press conference at Old Trafford

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) made light of an injury crisis to inflict Manchester United's first defeat under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a 2-0 win at Old Trafford on Tuesday to take a huge step towards the Champions League quarter-finals.

They are also due to visit Arsenal four days after trying to rescue their continental quest against the Ligue 1 champions. That's the level we need to aim for at this club. Of course, Neymar and Edinson are important, but so too is what happens on the ground and we showed that here.

United were impressive in the first half, without creating much in front of goal.

Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez were brought onto the field as replacements but both were largely anonymous.

"Our goal is to win every competition".

He added: "Good luck and from there we can speak the same language (be careful to the remontada [comeback] anyway because you are great experts) here it's not Paris as the Champions League victor". "However, it is only half-time". This is a level up from what we have played against with the games we've had.

"Marco and Marquinhos are incredible, but you can not play all season with just two midfielders - not at a club like PSG or a Bayern Munich".

But Tuchel recognised he was United's most influential player and used Marquinhos to nullify him completely.

'And in this team [under Solskjaer] I believe that Pogba is a fantastic football player but sometimes he lacks discipline.

"This was huge", said the Brazil worldwide.

Man Utd had 11 crosses from open play against PSG and none of them were successful (left-hand graphic). We played with character and strong mentality. They also, as one video doing the rounds on Twitter shows, incorporated an Old Trafford steward into their celebrations. "See you very soon I hope". This sort of match helps my development.

United are still yet to win a Champions League knockout game since 2014. The second leg of this European tie takes place on March 6, with an 8pm kick off.

"I must thank my teammates for an incredible performance", the Italian said.

"For me, to feel these emotions, to share them with my teammates, it is something that I can not be without". I'm happy he stayed confident. "It has to be one that we are going to learn from".

Captain Thiago Silva admitted his satisfaction at silencing some of PSG's critics and a tight defensive display. "I've been talking about how our strikers should try to get that".

Meanwhile, Dani Alves praised PSG's ability to "draw from our collective strength", while Julian Draxler paid tribute to the fans.

And according to Arsene Wenger, PSG's gameplan worked perfectly, as they frustrated Pogba all evening.

"Pogba was awful tonight", he said.

For starters, Solskjaer was managing Cardiff at the time, left and went back to Molde for a second spell before being "loaned" to his beloved United as interim boss until the end of the season. "We needed time to adapt".
