Manchester United must take game to PSG at Old Trafford, says Solskjaer

Paul Pogba is now enjoying more freedom playing alongside Herrera

United were stuck in a rut under the management of Jose Mourinho, while the French champions topped the toughest section of the group stages.

Solskjaer has made himself the favourite to land the Old Trafford role full-time, a situation which could become clearer over the next two weeks as United face high-profile matches with Chelsea and Liverpool in the FA Cup and Premier League respectively.

Anthony Martial has beaten Cristiano Ronaldo's time to reach 50 goal involvements for Manchester United and has been tipped for greatness by club boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Edinson Cavani is expected to join Neymar on the sidelines for PSG, heightening the sense of a tie very much in the balance.

"It's not about making a case for me to stay", he told Sky Sports. The basics under Solskjaer may seem simple but they contrast sharply with Mourinho's conservative approach that left a host of expensively assembled stars paralysed by fear of making mistakes.

"It's a winning identity, it's a confident identity".

And Jones said: "Everyone's going to take us seriously now. We are really happy to have him [Solskjaer] here and we hope we can continue [together], but the final decision isn't with us".

"He is asking me to attack more", Martial said. "Now I am always smiling".

Upfront, Jesse Lingard and Martial should flank Marcus Rashford - another man whose performances have soared since Solskjaer joined the club.

The France forward's talent has never been disputed during his time at Old Trafford but the 23-year-old has struggled to find a level of consistency.

So it looks like Lindelof and Rashford will be available for Tuesday's clash with PSG but Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia are set to miss out once again as they were absent at today's training session.

Mourinho spent most of his final season complaining that he had not been furnished with the experienced centre-back he demanded in pre-season, while chopping and changing his defence.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to entertain questions over his long-term ambitions at Manchester United on the eve of what could prove to be a defining period of his tenure.
