With about nine players out injured, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be left big decision to make when he selects his team to face Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night.
The Norwegian boss will be without the services of nine players, plus the suspended Paul Pogba who got suspended for the game after he was sent off in the closing minutes of the game at Old Trafford.
Still, the Red Devils defender Ashley Young, as quoted via nine players out injured, is denying the odd makers and experts as he insists his side will not go down without a fight in spite of very long odds.
“We know what we’re capable of.
“People can write us off. People were writing us off at the start of the season and people are writing us off now. It’s no different. Obviously it’s going to be tough. It’s not going to be easy.
“We’ve got to go over there, win the game and score goals. I’ve got every faith if we defend well and if we create the chances that I know we can do, we can win the game.
“We’ve got to go out there and win the game. We can’t worry too much about them, it’s all about us.”
The Red Devils are going in to the second leg of the UEFA Champions League last 16 tie with 2-0 down after goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe gave the Ligue 1 side a big advantage at Old Trafford.
Not only does Young’s and his cohorts have to fight back this two goals down but they’re going to have do it without a number of their key players.
With nine players out, it means they will be without the service of Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Nemanja Matic, Alexis Sanchez, Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian who are all injured and Phil Jones who has been missing through illness.
According to Manchester Evening New, it’s not yet clear whether or not Anthony Martial will be present for this return leg having been out of the club’s past three games due to injury.
