Marcus Rashford once again put Paris Saint-Germain to the sword with another late winner at the Parc des Princes to earn Manchester United a vital three points in the Champions League, which also eases the pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

During United’s last trip to the French capital in March 2019, Rashford scored a last-minute penalty.

And he once again proved to be the hero on a memorable night.

Solskjaer was under pressure because the Red Devils have only won two of their opening Premier League matches.

But United may have kickstarted their campaign with a brilliant victory over last season’s Champions League finalists, who had Kylian Mbappe and Neymar leading the line.

Both sides created a number of chances but it was Rashford’s late effort which proved the difference.

The England international backed his boss after netting the 20-yard winner which found the bottom corner via the post.

“Of course it’s a nice feeling,” Rashford said. “More importantly, we won the game. We’re in a strong position now in the group but it’s the first game.

“The concentration levels we showed today we have to take forward into the next game.

“For me, they were both opportunities to win the game. As a striker, in the game late on, that’s the mentality. You might only get one chance. It gets us the three points.”
