Pogba in the spotlight and 3 other strong reasons why United must beat Paris Saint-Germain
As United face the Ligue 1 giants in the Champions League on Tuesday, let's find out why we should definitely be the better team at Old Trafford.
The attack is confident
United's attack have been thriving following the Norwegian's appointment in December. Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard are expected to wreck havoc in a free-flowing Solskjaer's system on Tuesday. United also have incredible options from the bench, with Romelu Lukaku or Alexis Sanchez likely to come on in the second half.
Solskjaer's magic touch
Everything the Norwegian touches seems to turn into gold. Back in December, Jose Mourinho said it would take 'a miracle' for United to get into top 4. Yet, seven weeks under Solskjaer, the Red Devils find themselves back among Premier League's top four teams. Who's to say the 45-year-old's magic will not continue in the Champions League?
Pogba in the spotlight
The Frenchman, freed from Mourinho's defensive shackles, has reestablished himself as a key player under Solskjaer. Following France's World Cup triumph last summer, we all know that Pogba can perform in high-pressure situations. Now is the time for the 25-year-old to deliver in the Champions league at United.
While some fans and pundits dismissed Solskjaer's early results against bottom-side Premier League teams, victories against Tottenham and Arsenal have proved that the Norwegian is much more than just a 'feel good' manager. Should United get past the Ligue 1 giants in the last 16 of the Champions League, the Red Devils' board would be foolish not to consider him as a full-time boss.
