Second half goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe handed PSG a crucial victory ahead of the the second leg in Paris.

Wenger now believes United's lack of quality in the midfield contributed hugely to their defeat, contending that PSG boss, Thomas Tuchel, tactically outwitted Solskjaer.

"In the Champions League it is an important thing that you cannot be dominated in midfield and the whole evening Man United were dominated in midfield,’' Wenger explained on beIN SPORTS after the game.
"And they lost the battle there, in midfield. When you play at home and you cannot keep the ball, you’re always in trouble and that’s what happened," he added.

The Norwegian tactician started Paul Pogba, Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera in the midfield, with Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial leading the attackline.

The Red Devils will be seeking to make amends when they face Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup in their next fixture.
