Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s tremendous start as manager of Manchester United shows little sign of abating with the Red Devils’ unbeaten run continuing with a 3-0 thrashing of struggling Fulham last time out. United have now gone eleven matches without defeat under the guidance of Solskjaer, this run including impressive wins over the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, however the Norwegian will be bracing himself for what will be his toughest test since taking the reins, namely a Champions League last-sixteen meeting with French champs PSG.
The Parisian side are running away with the French title once again despite a slight wobble of late but their big ambition will doubtless be to become European champions. The big-spending owners will be desperate for their side to edge past the Red Devils over two legs although they have been dealt a major blow with star-player Neymar being out of action due to injury. Nevertheless this is a star-studded squad even without the Brazilian in the ranks and it is certain that they will pose United plenty of stubborn opposition along the way.

That said, PSG have dropped points in three Champions League group matches and they suffered a surprise defeat to Ligue One’s worst side in a cup competition as well as needing extra-time to edge past a third division side in the same competition.
With United enjoying some excellent form under their Norwegian boss, it is a realistic possibility that the home side can beat PSG at Old Trafford. Nevertheless it would be very foolish to write PSG off completely due to a few disappointing results. The French side would be more than happy with a draw given that they will be confident of finishing the job on their own turf while it certainly wouldn’t be a bad result for a Red Devils side which are continuing to improve under Solskjaer, William Hill Bookmakers going 12/5 on a draw.
