United v Paris Saint Germain is almost upon us as confidence remains high at Old Trafford. Saturday’s 3-0 win away at Fulham saw the Reds take another step towards top four. Something that seemed impossible only a few weeks ago. Jose Mourinho claimed it would take a miracle for the Reds to reach the top four. Thankfully Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a man who knows all about producing them.
United’s win at Craven Cottage was the 11th under the new boss, out of 12. Solskjaer had just been crowned manager of the month for January. And rightly so. The manager of the month award for February will be a much tougher task with Liverpool awaiting in two weeks’ time.
First up though is a double-header against Paris Saint Germain in the Champions League. News from the French capital has been encouraging. For United. The visitors will be without two of their biggest stars. Neymar and Edison Cavani, both seemingly on the injured list. Regardless of what certain managers may claim, that undoubtedly gives the Reds a huge boost. It would be foolish to think that PSG are now suddenly toothless. Kylian Mpbappe remains one of the biggest stars on the planet. Angel Di Maria is capable of unlocking any defence – just not ones United faced during his time at the club.
PSG at Old Trafford
The Parisienne outfit have a plethora of players United need to be wary of. Either at home or away, they’re always a threat. So how can the Reds prevail?
RedArmyBet ambassador Anthony Crolla has been giving his thoughts on the Champions League second round clash:
Can United overcome a PSG side that even missing key players is always a threat? Much may depend on who Solskjaer tasks with marking Mbappe. Victor Lindelof has been in fine form this season and is a nailed on starter. Eric Bailly was rested for the Fulham game -coming on as a late sub. The Lindelof/Bailly partnership could well be the one Ole turns to.
Is Anthony right? Can United take a positive result to Paris?
