Solskjaer says he 'can’t do anything' about Alexis Sanchez's Man Utd form.

PSG are a level up from what we have played against, says United interim boss.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expecting Alexis Sanchez to improve his all-round display after the forward failed to make an impact in Manchester United's defeat to PSG.

It was a bit of footballing lesson by the French champions after they beat United 2-0 in the Champions League at Old Trafford, thanks to second-half goals by Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe.

Sanchez, who has continued to be a shadow of the player he was at Arsenal, replaced Jesse Lingard shortly before half-time, but the Chilean failed to adapt to the speed of the clash.

And, Solskjaer said of the 30-year-old after the defeat as the Standard reported: ‘I can’t do anything about Alexis Sanchez. When he plays he needs to find himself.

‘That’s the reality, that Jesse and Anthony have been big parts of our squad and second half we didn’t have the pace and movement to get in behind them.

‘It was an even game and it’s always going to be difficult against good teams. The first goal is always going to be important. The way we conceded it was disappointing. The second goal was quality – the ground he makes up to get into the box is brilliant.

‘He [Mbappe] is lightning quick. You need to get your body in against him. This is a level up from what we have played against. That’s the level we want to get to. Top four is one thing, but Manchester United should be at the top.’
