Young Reds could face PSG
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted that Wednesday night's UEFA Champions League second leg against Paris Saint-Germain could afford some of Manchester United’s travelling youngsters with a chance to play.
“Yeah, it looks like he [Alexis] might be out for a bit,”said Solskjaer.
“It was a bad knee injury, [so he could be out for] four weeks or six weeks. Hopefully he'll recover quickly.”

“It's just one of those situations that you come into that we've lost a few players,”reflected Solskjaer, before reporters asked for more information about 18-year-old defender Williams.
“We'll have a good team out there. Alexis was the only one that we struggled to get fit for now. Brandon is a full-back who can play both sides. He's quick and this is the first time he has travelled with us.”
“He didn't expect to come but that's part of being here that suddenly you're called upon. That's why you're in the Academy, that we believe in you and suddenly you have to step up. That's why we have good coaches for them, to make them ready.”
“I have no news of Ney,” Tuchel told the French media last week.
“I was too optimistic last time [about Cavani], it's my fault. We cannot take risks, it's too early. We are happy that he will resume with us. Being realistic, it's very short for him to play against Manchester United.”
