PSG suffered their first league defeat of the season at the hands of Lyon, who beat them 2-1 on Sunday.

Amidst the stands during the game was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who had rushed to France immediately after Manchester United’s win over Leicester City in an attempt to scout their Champions League Round of 16 opponents.

Now, Thiago Silva has issued choice words for Solskjaer after the defeat. Speaking to Sky Sports, the defender quipped: “Solskjaer must be happy with what he saw. We started the game well, but then we lost our concentration and did not have a good first half.”

The captain of the French giants went on to add: “For me, too, it was difficult. The second half was better but that was not enough. We missed a lot of things. We need to be more focused when we do not have the ball, for example. Solskjaer possibly walked away from here happy because we did not play really well.”

However, the Brazilian then went on to add that United need not get too happy about PSG’s setback. He stated: “Do not be worried about. Next Tuesday, in Manchester, it will be another competition, another environment, another atmosphere.

“In the meantime, we have to work between us to show something else. It’s going to be a great clash against Manchester. We will be facing a great team. Manchester United are on a run of nine wins in 10 games. To beat them we will have to be at 110 per cent.”

However, in view of the present state of affairs, United will certainly fancy their chances. The club under Jose Mourinho seemed certain to be battered by the French giants.

However, their present form will be a bringer of great confidence. In addition, the news that Neymar will miss both the legs of the Champions League draw due to injury, combined with PSG’s general injury line, will certainly not hurt their spirits.
