Three things we learned from Man Utd v PSG

2:55                                            Highlights from Manchester United's 3-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League 2:55 Highlights from Manchester United's 3-0 win over Fulham in the Premier League

Manchester United suffered the heaviest home defeat in the club's European history in losing 2-0 at home to Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG failed to muster a first-half shot on target as United held their own at the start, only to wilt as Di Maria made light of rough treatment from former team-mates and fans.

Man United's woes were worsened in the penultimate stages of the game after Paul Pogba was shown a second yellow for a nasty challenge on Dani Alves.

"It was one of those experiences that can go either way, it's not going to be a season-defining one for us. It has to be one that we are going to learn from".

"You can see we haven't played games at this level for a while", Solskjaer said.

They won at Juventus in the group stage under Jose Mourinho before securing impressive victories at Tottenham and Arsenal with Solskjaer.

Zaniolo has emerged as one of Serie A's most promising talents this season since his transfer from Inter Milan in the offseason as part of the deal which saw Radja Nainggolan move the other way.

The midfielder has scored eight goals in his past eight Premier League appearances and will be a big loss for United in the return leg on March 7, but Solskjaer defended Pogba.

'I think he was lucky because it was not necessary, ' said Tuchel. "Celebrating under the Curva Sud was an incredible emotion, I hope I will score many more important goals for Roma".

The Frenchman, who only turned 20 in December, terrorised the United back-line with his speed.

Solskjaer gave United one of their greatest European nights when he scored the last-gasp victor in the 1999 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

"We can't lay down and say it's over". A repeat of that 3-0 win in Paris next month would take United through to the quarterfinals.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to break their transfer record with a move for Paris Saint-Germain attacker Neymar in this summer's transfer window.
