Solskjaer hoping to spring surprise in latest stage of United's rapid revival

Imagine him returning to Old Trafford alongside Kylian Mbappe up top, bagging a 90th minute victor at the Stretford End.

Anthony Martial believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's tactics are "easier" for Manchester United players to understand than those of Jose Mourinho.

Ahead of Manchester United's Round of 16 first leg clash against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday night, the French club's manager has spoken highly of the influential and in-form Paul Pogba.

Fellaini said of that contest: "I think Manchester United are the favourites".

"We have got a coach who has different intentions and we are trying to do what (Solskjaer) asks", he said. To make the difference, to be more decisive. Draxler said. "We will need him without Cavani and Neymar".

But the Frenchman recognises that he must become more adept at sniffing out what Solskjaer calls the "ugly" goals, not least by better timing his runs in behind defenders, if - like Mbappe - he is to regularly contribute 20 or more goals a season.

Horton says, if not for injuries that put a bit of a damper on his career, Granderson could have ended up like Robinson. Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred released the following statement in the wake of Robinson's passing.

The 37-year-old, who is a France worldwide himself and most recently played for West Ham United last year, started his address with: "This is a message for all the United players and United fans. And I think I don't really want to talk about the result but we want to score perhaps more than one (goal)".

The Uruguay striker left the pitch on the stroke of half-time holding his thigh, just after opening the scoring with a penalty in the 43rd minute. It promises to the biggest test yet of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly's renaissance.

Co-owner Avram Glazer travelled to Craven Cottage for Man United's 3-0 win over Fulham over the weekend and spoke with both Solskjaer and his agent Jim Solbakken after the game. They had a problem with [Adrien] Rabiot because he is maybe going to leave in the summer and he is a good player for them.

Pogba v Verratti: United are oozing confidence from every pore at the moment, but the biggest swagger off all belongs to Paul Pogba.

PSG's Kylian Mbappe set the benchmark for young French players, winning the World Cup at the age of 19.

He said: "I only stayed [for] one year".
