Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United are capable of springing a surprise in the Champions League this season, and claims that his side could not be in better shape going into their last-16 clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

United came into the game eight league games unbeaten under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and took the lead after just 14 minutes, with the rejuvenated Paul Pogba scoring a fine effort at the near post.

A twinkle in Paul Pogba's eye in the Fulham post-match interview while saying "we have some big games coming up" suggests it's a challenge that the team are relishing, and you nearly get a sense of this side being like new kids on the block, who want to now test themselves against the best.

Italy made the scoreline more respectable when Allan exploited a gap and teed up Edoardo Padovani into the right corner. But Gatland warned: " Italy will be hurting after last weekend, but they are a different proposition in Rome".

"Perhaps it is easier to play this style of football and not the style of football (Mourinho) asked".

Solskjaer told a news conference on Monday: "Of course, any team that has a missing player like Neymar or Cavani will feel the effect, but that will give the other players a chance".

"There will be moments when we need to defend deep, as I expect United to attack us, but we must be at our best everywhere". I want for us to be able to help him by finding him with good passes.

If Mr Sanchez is unable to approve his budget, he could call elections before his term is over in 2020. He met twice with Catalan chief Quim Torra.

He was also keen to emphasise that United's revived fortunes since he took over in December from Jose Mourinho were about the whole club's work and not just his own influence.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, caretaker manager Solskjaer said that he wants his side to continue their ascent up the Premier League table. It was towards the end of the game and we played a very poor game and Cristiano scored it. The midfielder has been involved in more goals in Europe's top five leagues than anyone else in that time.

PSG: No Neymar makes things incredibly tough, but when you considered that Cavani may also miss the match due to injury, you have to wonder if the scales are even balanced in this tie. Now he is looking forward to a great European night at Old Trafford, admitting they have been few and far between in recent years. "I think our right-back thinks it is not too bad he will not be here".
