Manchester United's four best players against PSG

Manchester United’s Champions League campaign will go down to the wire.

A 3-1 home defeat to Paris Saint-Germain has left us needing to go to RB Leipzig and come away with a point in order to qualify.

There were several poor performances, which we will get to in a separate piece. This one is focusing on the players who did manage to give a good account of themselves.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

Manchester United’s right-back chose a good moment to provide his first assist of the season.

He got forward well to join the attack and slipped a ball in to Marcus Rashford who scored United’s equaliser, with the help of a deflection.

It was one of two chances Wan-Bissaka created on the night.

Wan-Bissaka defended well during this game, as he did in Paris. His performance in France helped him here.

PSG’s attackers were reluctant to attack down his side and they tried to focus down United’s left. Wan-Bissaka coped well with what was thrown at him.

Victor Lindelof

Victor Lindelof coped well with Kylian Mbappe for the second successive game.

While the game got frantic towards the end as United threw players forward, beforehand, Lindelof and Harry Maguire defended well.

The Swede was the pick of the two, blocking two shots. United’s backline was not the problem here, even in a match where the team conceded three goals.

Scott McTominay

While midfield partner Fred could not stay out of trouble, Scott McTominay was impressive in evading it.

He made a total of seven tackles during the contest and caused the ire of Neymar, for the second game in a row.

McTominay is likely to have a big role in the away game against RB Leipzig next week, especially with Fred suspended for the fixture.

Marcus Rashford

“Rashford, for me, he was unplayable at times,” former United star Rio Ferdinand told BT Sport after the game.

Rashford scored United’s goal and was particularly lively in the second half.

His Champions League tally now stands at a very impressive six goals in five games this season.

The one bad note for Rashford was his early indecision in attack which led to PSG scoring on the counter-attack.

He certainly made up for it with his goal, and it was his cross which played in Anthony Martial for a clear cut opportunity which the Frenchman skied over.
