Following Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Leicester on Sunday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Mike Phelan travelled to Lyon to watch them beat PSG 2-1. The home side went a goal behind early on after former Red, Angel Di Maria, found the back of the net. However, Moussa Dembele drew his team level in the first half before Nabil Fekir scored the winning penalty early in to the second half.
PSG’s captain, Thiago Silva, claimed Solskjaer may be happy with what he saw ahead of the Champions League tie next week, but insisted PSG would be in better form at Old Trafford.
Solskjaer must be happy with what he saw. We started the game well, but then we lost our concentration and did not have a good first half. For me, too, it was difficult. The second half was better but that was not enough. We missed a lot of things. We need to be more focused when we do not have the ball, for example. Solskjaer possibly walked away from here happy because we did not play really well.
Do not be worried about us. Next Tuesday, in Manchester, it will be another competition, another environment, another atmosphere. In the meantime, we have to work between us to show something else. It’s going to be a great clash against Manchester. We will be facing a great team. Manchester United are on a run of nine wins in 10 games. To beat them we will have to be at 110 per cent.
