PSG 1-2 Manchester United PLAYER RATINGS: Axel Tuanzebe and Aaron Wan-Bissaka shine

3 min read

Marcus Rashford hit the winner in Paris again as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side deservedly beat last season’s Champions League runners-up.

Bruno Fernandes opened the scoring for the visitors but the Ligue 1 giants were level after Anthony Martial headed the ball into his own net. But with minutes remaining Rashford proved to be the hero for a second time in France

Here, Sportsmail’s Chris Wheeler runs the rule over both sides at the Parc des Princes. 

PSG (4-3-3)

KEYLOR NAVAS 7 

Penalty save counted for nothing but made a number of other great stops.

ALESSANDRO FLORENZI 6 

On-loan Roma defender had his hands full with Alex Telles and United’s front two.

Ex-Everton man was solid but first to be subbed as PSG sought creative spark.

His debut ended badly as he lost Rashford in the build-up to winning goal.

ANDER HERRERA 6 

Former United man wanted to make an impression against his old club. He didn’t.
