PSG 1-2 Manchester United PLAYER REVIEWS: Axel Tuanzebe and Aaron Wan-Bissaka shine

Marcus Rashford again hit the winner in Paris when Ole Gunnar’s side rightfully beat Solskjaer in last season’s Champions League.

Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring for the visitors, but the Ligue 1 giants were right after Anthony Martial headed the ball into his own goal. But with minutes to go, Rashford turned out to be the hero in France for the second time.

Here, Sportsmails Chris Wheeler leads the line on both sides at the Parc des Princes.

PRESNEL KIMPEMBE 6.5

The man whose handball last cost PSG was more reliable on this occasion.

Ex-Everton man was solid, but first submerged when PSG was looking for a creative spark.

DANILO PEREIRA 5.5

His debut ended badly when he lost to Rashford in the run-up to the winning goal.

NEYMAR 5

Arm. Concerned United with his running from very early but faded afterwards.
