Man Utd welcome PSG to Old Trafford in the Champions League on Tuesday

Manchester United have enjoyed a change in fortunes on the pitch since Ole Gunnar Solskjær was appointed caretaker manager.

United held their own in the first half but were forced into a reshuffle because of injuries just before the interval to Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.

However, Herrera insists they aren't getting too down on themselves after the defeat at Old Trafford and believes they've seen further confirmation that they're heading in the right direction.

Woodward joined those paying tribute to former youth team coach Eric Harrison, who died on Thursday aged 81, describing his passing as "especially poignant" for Manchester United and underlining the club's commitment to young players.

"I honestly thought PSG were very comfortable".

Neville hopes Sanchez can find some kind of form by then, with the former Red Devils defender telling Radio 5 Live: "There was a 20-minute period in the second half and United didn't touch the ball and Alexis Sanchez definitely didn't". They were levels above us, we have to be fair. It is a hard mountain to climb, but not impossible.

However, Solskjaer feels there's still plenty of improvement to be made and Metro.co.uk understands he's been taking sessions with his forward players after training to help them improve on their positional play, anticipation and movement.

Solskjaer's side turn their attention to the FA Cup with a trip to Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea in the fifth round of the competition up next. "If you lose being worse than the opponent, that could hurt us".

"It was an experience that can go either way, it's not going to be a season defining one, it's one we have to learn from".

He has now progressed to become a star player who is already being followed by a number of big sides including Liverpool, Arsenal, Paris Saint Germain and Barcelona. "We have character, because it's not easy to play here".

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.
