The main concern among Manchester United fans was about the midfield scenario. the United folklore has been accustomed to witnessing someone like Paul Pogba or Anderer Herrera run the show from the middle but to their displeasure, both were unavailable for this match.

Solksjaer deployed Fred in the middle and the Brazillian surprised the fans with his energy which proved to be instrumental in the successful completion of United's mission.

Fred was like a live wire, running all around the park to win the ball back from the PSG players. A sure shot contender for the Man of the Match award.


#3 Buffon's Rare mistake

Gianluigi Buffon is undoubtedly one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time but sometimes even the greatest of the greats make mistakes and this evening was an apt example of that.

Buffon made a horrendous error as he tried to save Rashford's long-range effort and failed to collect the ball properly which then fell for Romelu Lukaku to score and restore United's lead on the Evening.

It was a sort of rare mistake not very often committed by the Italian but it seems like United's lucky day as the mistake did help United get that all-important second goal.
