Player Ratings

Player ratings: Manchester United 1 Paris Saint-Germain 3

Manchester United failed to book their place in the round of 16 of the Champions League after a defeat in the hands of Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening.

It was an eventful and combative afternoon at Old Trafford and despite a promising performance, Solskjær’s side go home with nothing to show for it.

Marcus Rashford canceled out Neymar’s early goal before a scrappy goal from Marquinhos just before Fred was sent off sealed the victory for the Parisians.

RB Leipzig, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain now all sit at 9 points the group, setting up a thrilling finale next week.

David de Gea: 6
Made a fantastic save to deny Bakker – the save which subsequently lead to PSG’s corner from which they scored their second goal.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 7
Very impressive in defence considering he was often left alone by Rashford. Becoming an integral part of his sides build-up play as well. Came off late, unclear whether it’s the same injury he struggled with earlier or if it was tactical.

Victor Lindelöf: 7
Very good in defence throughout.

Harry Maguire: 8
Missed his tackle in the dying moments but didn’t put a foot wrong all game, really.

Alex Telles: 6
Didn’t struggle that much defensively but crossing was poor once he got involved in the final third.

Scott McTominay: 6
Incredible how the Scot didn’t get booked after fouling Neymar countless times. The Brazilian enjoyed coming up against him at times but rarely got in good positions before Fred’s sending off due to McTominay’s tight marking.

Fred: 6
Should’ve been sent off in the first half, he wasn’t and had a good game. He was then incorrectly sent off for a foul on Ander Herrera. Good performance.

Marcus Rashford: 7
Scored against PSG once again and set up several chances for his teammates. Substituted due to his ongoing shoulder issue.

Bruno Fernandes: 5
Poor, very poor. Unlike him.

Anthony Martial: 4
Missed two sitters and he’ll be wondering when his season turns for the better. He’ll be kicking himself after that.

Edinson Cavani: 7
Very good performance from a competent centre-forward. Some of his link-up and one touch play was flawless tonight. Unlucky to hit the bar with an audacious chip.
