Three things we learned from Man Utd v PSG

Three things we learned from Man Utd v PSG

Sanchez was named on the bench for United's Champions League first leg clash with Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford on Tuesday night but he was called to warm-up after Lingard picked-up a hamstring problem during the closing stages of the first half.

He was, however, to see Sanchez make little impact during a second half showing which saw Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe find the target for PSG and Paul Pogba see red for United.

The Norwegian, nicknamed "the baby-faced assassin" in his playing days, is a huge favourite with the club's fans thanks in no small part to his last-minute goal to clinch the Uefa Champions League title against Bayern Munich in 1999.

Di Maria scored just four goals in 32 games for the club, but believes the fault lies with the manager who didn't allow him to express himself. We work every day for it. But if you can win the Champions it will be welcome.

"I think this result is not going to hurt us because of the way we lost", he said. "We are working hard for it". Ahead of the rematch at Parc des Princes, PSG will be feeling much better, after being demoralized for missing two or three important players.

"I am not scared of any comeback, because if you are scared you can't reach any goal", Alves added.

'I'd say other teams will be taking notes, knowing they too can mark Pogba out of the game.

The New York Times and the Washington Post are said to be among the publishers that are not happy with Apple's terms. But it also says Apple only wants to give 50% of that fee to news publishers - and keep the rest for itself.

"We're delighted to have secured agreements to extend the contracts of a number of our players, Anthony Martial, Scott McTominay, Ashley Young, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling", Woodward said.

"We are all optimistic and positive - we are building something good".

Meanwhile, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi heaped praise on the Ligue 1 champions.

"It is a blow", he said, according to Manchester Evening News.

"Don't be sorry, [it is] something we have to learn from", Solskjaer said of the message he will give his players.

Lingard and Martial were replaced by the time play resumed for the second half, which quickly saw the already-booked Kimpembe haul back Rashford only to get away scot free. Under caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær the club have won 10 out of 12 matches in all competitions and are now fourth in the Premier League.
