Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the first Manchester United manager in history to lose a home tie by more than one goal after his side’s 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Red Devils kept with the Ligue 1 giants during a tense first half but were outclassed after the interval and goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe gave the French club a healthy lead going into the second leg.

The Norwegian had made a near-faultless start to life at Old Trafford before tonight, winning 10 of his 11 games in charge.

However, the 45-year-old set an unwanted record by becoming the first manager to lose a tie at Old Trafford by two goals.

Paul Pogba was sent off in the dying minutes for a second bookable offence.

United lost both Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard to injury in the first half and struggled to lay a glove on PSG after the interval.

The second leg in Paris takes place on March 6th
