Home   /   Post-Match Reaction: Manchester United 1-3 PSG- “Big Moments and Big Chances” Cost United

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire described United’s loss against PSG as a “disappointing night” and a “game of fine margins”. PSG claimed all three points at Old Trafford to send Group H to the final day and keep United sweating in regards to qualification from the group.

Maguire also claimed United “deserved something from the game” and they can take “plenty of positives out of tonight”. Maguire felt hard done by the opening two PSG goals saying, “their two goals were scrappy goals, they haven’t opened us up with the talent they have in the team”

United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer described it as a “very good game of football” but his sides’ missed chances left him disappointed. “More clinical finishing, we should have finished the game by midway in the second half, I thought they were there for the taking”, with the United boss left frustrated by his side sides inability to take “big moments and big chances”.

Solskjaer was left unhappy with the decision that saw Fred sent off saying, “the second yellow is nowhere near a foul”, he admits he decided against substituting the Brazilian at half time saying, “Fred played really well, we spoke about being calm and staying on your feet”.

United head to Leipzig for the final game of the group knowing they must avoid defeat to qualify. However, Solskjaer laid a marker down for his side saying, “we go into games of football wanting to win.”
