Manchester United fans rightfully gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praise for his role in the outstanding performance vs PSG.
The legendary Norwegian’s men were certainly not the favourites for the clash but ended up winning convincingly.
Although the scoreline was just 2-1, it so easily could’ve been more for United who were in total control of the fixture.
Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford were the two to score the goals but the whole team performed superbly to grab the brilliant win.
Solskjaer has often been criticised of late but it’s safe to say he set the team up perfectly for success.
Solskjær was tactically brave, man. He left his CFs up the pitch for counters. Then, instead of bringing on a defender when we were defending deep he fought fire with fire and brought Pogba on and WENT WITH A DIAMOND. Man, that was something else.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – tactically outplayed PSG away in the Champions League yet you’ll still hear people repeating the phrase “he has no tactics” that they’ve read from someone on the internet.

People saying Ole fluked his way through this game are actually stupid, he set up perfectly and we outclassed them 👍

The scoreline might suggest it was a smash and grab win or a counter-attacking masterclass but there was actually far more to it.
Manchester United stemmed PSG world-class attack while offering plenty of threat themselves in what was the perfect big game performance.
Had they had a little more luck and tiny bit more quality, Solskjaer’s men could’ve run away with the result.
Not only was the original setup perfect from the former Molde boss but he reacted perfectly to PSG’s attempts to change the game by making his own adjustments.
Even Solskjaer’s substitutions were spot on and allowed United to remain in charge of the tense fixture.
