The United mood and the game (especially offensive) has been much better since Solskjær got the coaching post on Dec 19th. More freely, less heavy. At the same time:
There is no naïve play: In the lead, Solskjær gladly leaves the initiative to the opponent, making the rooms small and counter-threading.
During the Norwegian, Utd is 9-1-0 with goal scorer 25-8 and is back in the PL game about CL tickets.
The midway has marked itself with the French world champion Pogba as inspirator and Matic + Herrera as a solid foundation.
In the offensive, fast and powerful Rashford has shown his great talent, and the creative sector is broader now with Sanchez back from injury.
Goalkeeper De Gea: Excellent shotstopper. Not the best in the air, but apart from Cavani, PSG is rather airy. Also defensive. Small middle defenders.
PSG must do without creator / next-top scorer Neymar (since 19/1).
PSG leads the French league supremely, while United in addition to CL have to worry about the Premier League where there is fierce combat in the subtop.
United’s defense is not on par with the other chains. Allows too many chances. The Gea is good, but the team has also been a little lucky.
At the same time, the offensive – despite progress under Solskjaer – has in between problems with opening compact defenses.
PSG hardly digs, but can focus on defensive + versus Old Trafford. And game benefits Verratti, back after injury, is good against pressure.
The Parisians have excellent Thiago Silva as a defense force, and behind him is the super veteran Buffon (or the fast-acting great talent Areola).
The PSG defensive has fast / aggressive people in, for example, Marquinhos, Bernat, Kehrer (alternative: attack strong Meunier) who can frustrate United’s offensive.
At the other end, PSG is weakened without Neymar, but has two world-class competitors in effective Cavani and fast-paced Mbappé.
There are several toxic counter-arms, eg technician (dribbles and shoots) Di Maria. And flexible and intelligent Draxler.
Football Prediction of the Day Manchester United vs PSG
The main absence and doubts should be mentioned above. In addition: United still without backs Valencia (ideal starter on the right, I think but been away long) and reserve Darmian. Doubts on defense replacement Rojo.Keep an eye on the comment thread below for updates.Rabiot is better forward than as a stabilizing factor. There are Lassana Diarra who are actually 6’s, but he doesn’t enjoy the coach’s confidence, and it’s hard to imagine he’s going to play against United (if at all that time; China is an option). A starting point in the midfield could rather go to the January buy-in Paredes, but first of all he is not played in, secondly he is not really 6er, rather boxing boxer or game advantages. Trainer Tuchel has tried with either midfielder Marquinhos or right back Alves as 6s, but with limited success. Now, Verratti (back in training on February 4 after 2 weeks of break) is ready and he is a proficiently deep-seated game distributor, but he lacks a 6-mate who can conquer balls and intelligently be a balancing actor and divider when he the other midfield goes forward.
