Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been widely lauded for his tactics and team selection that helped Manchester United to a stunning 2-1 win against Paris Saint-Gemain on Tuesday.

Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford scored on either side of half-time to secure the best possible start to what is set to be an incredibly tough Group H campaign.

Solskjaer's decision in terms of starting personnel and substitutions played a huge part in the momentous win.

Speaking in the aftermath of United's triumph, Rashford made sure to pay tribute to his manager.

"I think the manager got it spot on. The system allowed us to express ourselves going forward and to be tight defensively, which I think we did as well as we could. Of course, it’s a big win and a perfect position to be in because we got a lot to improve on as well. It’s a good performance and a performance we have a lot to build on. I always believe in the team, as players it’s important to believe in the system the manager wants us to play. Today we did that fantastically.

"It was difficult at times, especially late on it’s tough. Like I've said before, we kept the intensity high. At times we had to defend really deep. They have some unbelievable players, Neymar, Mbappe, Di Maria. You know, players who play the ball forward. In a low block, it can be tough but the fullbacks, they defend unbelievably. When you defend like that, man to man, we can do great things.”
