There were some exceptional Champions League ties earlier in the week, from Ajax's complete dismantling of Real Madrid at the Bernabeu, to the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer-spun wizardry that saw Manchester United vanquish PSG, to Porto's extra time slugfest against Roma.

The agent of Gianluigi Buffon has leaped to the defence of the Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper following his cosyly howler against Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League round of 16.

Solskjaer, though, insisted it was impossible to have a dual contract in place, and his Molde contract was terminated, ensuring he could sign a new, short-term deal with United.

"With the contract issue, you can not have two contracts when you are a manager".

Lukaku believes that Solskjaer will get the Old Trafford job on a permanent basis.

We have been learning fast about Solskjaer and, here, we discovered how long it takes him to correct a significant error.

"I love Rashford man, I love Rashford". It will be very welcomed up here, certainly by myself because I think the percentage of getting decisions right is close to perfection. He calmly slotted home the ball and gave United a 3-1 lead on the night.

Here are the player ratings for the Manchester United players from the game.

Bookmakers have also slashed the odds on Manchester United to win the Champions League.

Solskjær will have Anthony Martial available for Arsenal after a groin injury, with Nermanja Matic and Ander Herrera also having a chance of making the squad following respective maladies.

"We're looking better for it".

Criticism of him had surged in the final months of a year ago as Mourinho floundered and Neville accused the executive vice-chairman of lacking "leadership" as well as questioning if he was fit to run the club.

"Micky Phelan has been a genius inclusion into his team and they're doing some great work".

"I was happy that he scored", Lukaku said in an interview with Gary Neville on beIN Sports.

"The driver pulled over to get them out of his taxi, before pulling out a knife and threatening the female passenger in the group", claimed Sky.

"Rashy's goals are sometimes worldies, and he does have a sensational strike of the ball but you see the improvement and maturity and change in Cristiano's goals from when he was young to now".
