Confident United will be a tough challenge - Tuchel

Our players are more than capable.

Martial grew so disillusioned under former manager Jose Mourinho that it was only nine months ago that his agent, Philippe Lamboley, was talking about his client quitting the club.

"You can not replace quality players like this, Neymar is one of the key, key players in Europe and we miss him a lot and now we miss a second key player with Edi", Tuchel told reporters on Monday.

"We have got a coach who has different intentions and we are trying to do what he asks", he said. "Perhaps it is easier to play this style of football and not the style he [Mourinho] asked". The manager is not getting carried away.

"He was one of my favourite players when I used to watch him on television", Tuchel said at the start of this season after making it clear that Di Maria was just as important to him as the "MCN" front three of Mbappe, Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

It's likely they will use 10-day contracts to fill the void while waiting on the buyout picture to clear. Abrines has appeared in only 2 games since December 23rd, citing personal reasons.

"When our new coach came in he had a lot of confidence, a lot of determination". Although it would have been hilarious to see him turn out alongside Neymar, Cavani and Mbappe, it is probably best for all parties that this move never materialised.

A goal in the second half from Paul Pogba gives United a small lead entering the second leg. Martial's superb solo goal in the 3-0 victory was his 11th of the campaign and evoked memories of Ronaldo's victor over Fulham in 2007. Thirteen years after scoring the most famous goal of his playing career to win the trophy with Manchester United, Solskjaer's first taste of managing in the competition is rather more low-key.

"I don't really want to talk about the result we are aiming for tomorrow", remarked the 45-year-old, "but we're here to score, absolutely".

Marouane Fellaini has confirmed that Paris Saint-Germain wanted to sign him in the summer 2018 and revealed why he took the decision to leave Manchester United in January. PSG still has Kylian Mbappe but no true replacement as a No. 9 striker. It promises to the biggest test yet of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly's renaissance. "I think Manchester United have the advantage". Neymar, the world's most expensive player, has a foot problem, Cavani a hip injury. It's been like night and day, as he's turned this team into a risky one like in seasons past. He was a super risky player and he is now winning games as manager.
