Manchester face PSG in a UEFA clash bearing in their minds that they face Arsenal in a EPL clash and with the injury eating into the club, interim Manager is likely to shield a youth side.
Manchester United have jetted out to Paris ahead of their Champions League clash with PSG. United trail the French champions 2-0 from their first leg at Old Trafford last month.
Solskjaer must do without as many as 10 players in the last-16 encounter amid an injury crisis within the United squad. Paul Pogba is also suspended for the Red Devils, who face an uphill battle to qualify for the quarter-finals.
Solskjaer was pictured arriving at Manchester Airport on Tuesday morning ahead of the trip to Paris.
He was soon followed by legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who is believed to have helped his former player during his short stint as interim boss.
United won’t risk Anthony Martial as he continues his recovery from an injury while Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are also sidelined.
Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera are still missing while Alexis Sanchez is out for up to eight weeks with a knee problem. Solskjaer is again without Antonio Valencia, who is though said to be well recovering at his home town in Ecuador, Phil Jones and Matteo Darmian.
That means Solskjaer is again likely to turn to his youth players, having given James Garner, Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong opportunities from the bench in recent weeks. They were joined by fellow youngsters Mason Greenwood and Brandon Williams at Manchester Airport.
Greenwood was called up by Jose Mourinho for the final group stage match with Valencia but didn’t feature. Williams, 18, is a left-back and signed his first professional deal a year ago.
Speaking about his side’s approach to the clash, Solskjaer said this week: “We’re going to go out there and enjoy the game.
“We know it’s a difficult place to come and they [PSG] played really well at Old Trafford, so it’s a great challenge for our players to go out there and show what they can do,” he said.
“We’d rather win 4-2 than try to get a 2-0. We’ve got to get to half-time better off than we are now. If you can get to 1-0 at half-time then anything can happen in the second half.
“We can go there and score a goal and make it chaotic in the last 15 or 20 minutes.”
Those who have travelled include, De Gea, Romero, Grant; Bailly, Dalot, Lindelof, Rojo, Shaw, Smalling, Williams, Young; Fred, Garner, Gomes, McTominay, Pereira; Chong, Greenwood, Lukaku, Rashford.
