United are severely depleted with up to 10 players missing the trip through injury.

But Solskjaer has insisted that the club's history is laced with great comeback wins and he stressed that the tie is far from over.

Centre back Chris Smalling picked up his dry cleaning while fellow defender Diogo Dalot, now enjoying a run in the side, went for a fresh trim.

United appeared to be heading towards a disappointing home draw until substitute Fred exchanged passes with Luke Shaw and found the in-form Belgian on the edge of the area before Lukaku did the rest with a pinpoint 18-yard finish into the bottom corner.

The Red Devils face a tough task of overturning their two goals deficit when they battle PSG in the second leg of their Champions League clash this week. Despite the side's list of injuries and lack of depth available to them and the manager, a brace from Romelu Lukaku as well as an incredible goal from Andreas Pereira allowed the hosts to pick the victory over the hostile visitors in the end.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's unbeaten start to Premier League life continued on Saturday as Old Trafford bore witness to a helter-skelter thriller. If we are in the game with 20 to 30 minutes to go then who knows. The midfielder made the most of the space he was allowed to beat Gunn with a rising shot from just outside the area to claim his first Premier League goal, but what was noticeable was that Dalot had produced more in a couple of minutes than the laboured Sanchez had managed in nearly an hour.

Cherries boss, Eddie Howe, repeatedly finds a way to dig his team out of a rut and they're certainly in one at present, despite the freakish Chelsea victory that followed a 2-0 home win against West Ham. It was an open game and they came here to beat us.

"Paul wants to take, that for me is fantastic".

Old Trafford bore witness to an electrifying encounter on Saturday afternoon, when Andreas Pereira's stunner and a thumping Romelu Lukaku strike cancelled out an outrageous first-half effort by Yan Valery. Predicting a Pep Guardiola line-up is notoriously tricky but I suspect Sterling will play and he'll probably score. Focusing back onto Lukaku, he may not be the fan's favourite player or a clinical forward, but he is showing huge signs that he has improved since the managerial change. If the Cherries do fail to score, [5.0] about City -3 goals is juicy enough too. You feel a lot of emotions and I'm very happy and hopefully, there will be many more to come.
