Marcus Rashford the hero as Manchester United beat PSG 2-1.

It was a moment of deja vu as Manchester United once again picked three vital points away at Paris-Saint Germain. The suspect again, Marcus Rashford.

There were three minutes left when Paul Pogba, on as a second-half substitute, held play up on the edge of the area, shielding the ball and spying Rashford in a dangerous corridor.

The striker made his call and, ball at his feet, simply burst into life, streaking through and finishing with a shot across the body of Keylor Navas.

Manchester United were much the better side in the Parc des Princes on Tuesday night. Hungrier, more ambitious and diligent. Their forwards were more threatening, their defenders more resolute.

The game got off to the perfect start for the visitors when Bruno Fernandes reliably put United ahead from twelve yards in the first half with a retaken penalty.

A header from a corner, straight into his own net by Anthony Martial was what got PSG back into the game and for a while seemed sure to deny Manchester United a deserved victory.

But Rashford had other plans on the night, grabbing the winner with a sublime finish.
