Thomas Tuchel arranged his team in 4-3-3 with an attack made up of Neymar, Mbappé and Di Maria. In midfield, Danilo had his first start while in defense Marquinhos had to give up and was replaced by Diallo. In this configuration, Paris did not shine and bowed for its first Champions League match of the season.
Navas: 7. The Parisian goalkeeper delayed the defeat, with three very important and not obvious saves on powerful strikes of Fernandes then Rashford twice. He also thought he had stopped the Mancunian penalty, but he had left his line and it was logically given to withdraw. He can’t help Rashford’s magnificent strike.
Florenzi: 3. Convincing in Ligue 1, the Italian did not successfully pass the Champions League test. He struggled in construction and didn’t fly over his game defensively. Replaced by Dagba (78th).
Diallo: 4. His match was weighed down by his avoidable fault on Martial who brought the penalty and the opening of the score of the English. For the rest, the French defender did not seem very comfortable even if he did not commit big blunders. He sticks out a McTominay head.
Kimpembe: 4. A bizarre match where the Parisian captain was less in demand than Diallo. But he had difficulty coming out with clean balls in the face of pressure from Mancun and missed an intervention in front of Rashford.
Kurzawa: 5.5. The left side provided offensive solutions, but he was not precise enough in his centers. He may have missed a little rhythm, he who had not played since September 13. But he hits De Gea’s bar on a loose cross. Replaced by Bakker (86th).
Herrera: 4. With the exception of a good shift for Di Maria (12th), the Spaniard did not offer much in the verticality and in the intervals. In fact, he abused a too lateral play. Replaced by Rafinha (78th).
Danilo Pereira: 4. For his first match with PSG, the Portuguese international recovered some balls in the midfield. But he had a lot more trouble in the forward game and finished very tired. Get knocked out on Rashford’s winning goal.
Gueye: 3. The Senegalese international crossed the first half like a shadow. He does not defend aggressively enough at the start of the action that brings MU’s penalty. Replaced by Kean (46th). At the center-forward position, the Italian (4) made his power speak without posing too many problems to the English defense.
Di Maria: 3. With the exception of his 12th-minute strike, he lacked juice and precision with every decision-making. He hadn’t played since September 27 and it showed. Replaced by Sarabia (86th).
Mbappé: 4. A failed first period where he was often caught in the trap of Mancunian defenders. He recovered after the break with a good strike, but he often missed the kick to conclude. The accumulation of matches perhaps.
Neymar: 3.5. He complicated his life during the first half of the match with questionable choices and approximations. Too bad because when he played simple, and therefore fair, the game of Paris was illuminated.
