Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were in top form as Manchester United continued their unbeaten run under Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer by securing a comfortable 3-0 win over Fulham.

French World Cup victor Pogba wanted to leave the Red Devils during Mourinho's reign but has played a central role in United's turnaround in the last two months.

Solskjaer has been credited for getting the best out of United's star players and for his preferred style of play, which harks back to the glory days under Ferguson.

"He does have similarities, of course", said Solskjaer, who replaced the sacked Mourinho in December.

"You can't just place all the burden on him but we're talking about Kylian Mbappé - he has his own qualities, it's not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar, and he can't do all three things at the same time", said Tuchel.

PSG have been boosted by the news that Marco Verratti is fit to play in this match, and he makes it into central midfield alongside the in-form Paul Pogba, who has re-established himself as United's main man under Solskjaer and added another two goals to his growing tally at the weekend. "We might have been a bit of a laughing stock at the beginning of the season but we're certainly not now".

The Champions League round of 16 kicks off on Tuesday with a big one from "The Theatre of Dreams" as red-hot Manchester United hosts a banged-up Paris Saint-Germain squad without Neymar and Edinson Cavani.

"To play in this moment at Old Trafford against Manchester United is again like in our group stage one of the toughest challenges that you can have". He is a Manchester United player.

Injuries to the likes of Rashford or Martial might not be the end of the world if somehow Alexis Sanchez can finally find the form that made him a world class player before his arrival at United.

"I have played a couple of games when we played Real Madrid and Ronaldo and (Luis) Figo and all those were coming to Old Trafford.

I have to say I don't think I would have hit it like he did, so fantastic goal".

"His attacking play, when he arrives in the box, there is always going to be a chance of scoring a goal, or an assist or a goal". I've said it in the past: we've not achieved anything yet, we're under no illusions but we're heading in the right direction. Now he is looking forward to a great European night at Old Trafford, admitting they have been few and far between in recent years.
