Solskjaer compares Rashford to Mbappe ahead of Man United vs PSG

Manchester United vs PSG

Manchester United host PSG on Wednesday in the first leg of their Champions League clash.

United will face PSG in the away leg on March 6th.

Heading into the first leg though, Man United have been in outstanding form.

After beating Fulham on Saturday, United have now gone 11 games unbeaten across all competitions under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, winning 10 and drawing one.

United would also move into the top four for the first time since the opening weekend of the season.

PSG, on the other hand, are top of Ligue 1 having lost just once all season.

However, PSG will be without both Neymar and Edison Cavani for the United game due to injury.

French outlet Telefoot have provided a probable PSG eleven to face United after the Neymar and Cavani injuries.

Rashford vs Mbappe

Heading into the game, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been comparing Marcus Rashford to Kylian Mbappe:

“Marcus is going to be a top-quality player. I love working with him. I am sure PSG will look at Marcus the way we look at Mbappe – he’s one of the main threats.

“Mbappe had a fantastic rise to stardom and he’s got a fantastic smile about him. A great enthusiasm. And there will understandably be comparisons.”As quoted by Metro.

The pair will both surely start on Wednesday and will both likely be their teams main attacking threat.

Rashford has been in good form of late, scoring eight in his last six league games.

Mbappe, on the other hand, has scored 16 in 18 Ligue 1 games this campaign.
