Much has changed for United since their last match in the elite European event.

Jose Mourinho, who took charge for their previous match in the Champions League, has been replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, under whom the former winners are unbeaten in his 12 matches in charge.

The Red Devils will have to come through the Man Utd vs PSG first leg without a pair of defensive players though, as Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian have both been ruled out of the contest.

Solskjaer confirmed the absentees for the Man Utd vs PSG tie when he addressed the media ahead of the game, and highlighted that his two right-backs would not be available.

Solskjaer has passed all of the tests he has faced as United’ caretaker manager with flying colours so far, but there are still no signs of him getting the job full-time, however, were he to negotiate a path into the quarterfinals of the Champions League, it would be almost impossible to deny him the chance to become the permanent coach of the club.
