Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on PSG away leg: 'Everyone expects us to go out easily but that doesn't happen with United'
- The head coach has previewed the Wednesday's UCL clash with PSG.
- He admits massive errors United committed in the first leg.
- Still, he refuses to write his team off because stranger things have happened.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has brought Victor Lindelof along for his pre-PSG press conference to answer some game-related questions.
He was first asked about the 2-goal deficit United have to overcome: ''We need the goal, and we need to stay in the game. If there's half an hour left and one goal in it, anything can happen.
''Results in the UCL in the last few years have been - not stranger - but Real Madrid were 3-0 up and nearly lost it (vs Juventus), the year before there was PSG v Barcelona (6-1 comeback from 4-0 down). We've been fantastic away from home, winning against Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham.

''Goals change games, if we get the first one we might back ourselves even more. Never... never mission impossible. ''I think everyone expects us to go out, and go out easily. But that doesn't happen with Man United.''

The boss spoke about the game in Manchester: ''When you concede a set-piece that is always disappointing, the next ten minute’s were bad. We know their qualities on the counter-attack and that 10 minute period it looked like they would score every time.
''I've got to say I was disappointed, not unhappy. At half-time we spoke about keeping a clean sheet and I was disappointed in the way we conceded the goals. But the reaction has been really good after.''
He concluded: ''We are playing good football, you have to be. The form has improved all the season, hopefully we can put that together tomorrow night with 10 or 11 players really hitting form.''
