Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is taking nothing for granted against PSG despite Manchester United’s opponents missing Neymar and other key players through injury.
The Norwegian manager has been on a roll since taking over his former team on an interim basis since December, but Paris St. Germain represent the toughest task in his short time in charge thus far.
On top of that, Manchester United will face Manchester City and Liverpool in the coming weeks, but Solskjaer is only taking things one game at a time.
“Of course we’re playing against some top teams in the next few games but we are just focused on the next one,” he said in the pre-match press conference.
“We don’t look too far ahead because then you lose your focus. I want my players to embrace the occasion.”
"We've given ourselves the best possible opportunity because of the way we've come into this game," Ole adds. "We're confident and we're looking like a team. If there was ever a time to go into big games, it's now." #MUFC pic.twitter.com/D4BIyrFrCZ

Man United’s chances of winning the two-legged have increased in recent weeks, with Edinson Cavani and Thomas Meunier joining Neymar on the injury list, but the ex-striker is taking nothing for granted ahead of Tuesday night’s clash.
“Any team that are missing players will feel the effect but that will give the others the chance.
“So it makes them more unpredictable, but we’ve got a good guesstimate of how they’re preparing for the game.”
Meanwhile, it has been reported in the Independent that the Glazer family have met with Solskjaer to discuss his future at the club, as the prospect of him taking the managerial reins on a permanent basis grows by the day.
