Ole Gunnar Solskjaer heaped praise on his Manchester United players after beating Paris St Germain with a performance that was even better than last year's jaw-dropping Champions League triumph at the Parc des Princes.
The Red Devils had been on course for a morale-boosting start to Group H rather than a victorious one after Anthony Martial's second-half own goal cancelled out stand-in skipper Bruno Fernandes' spot-kick.
But 19 months on from securing their historic last-16 comeback triumph in the French capital, Marcus Rashford struck late to secure another stunning victory at PSG as United ran out 2-1 winners in their Champions League opener.
While Solskjaer returns to the north west with a smile on his face, PSG head coach Thomas Tuchel was left perplexed by his side's performance.
"We played well before this, with five straight wins," he said.
"It was a performance without intensity, without aggression, without getting the ball back, without counter-pressing. It was a bit bizarre. I don't know why.
"It's clear we can improve and we must. We're not happy with the performance but now is not the moment to be too critical in public. We'll do that behind closed doors."
