Manchester United beat PSG in the Champions League last night, turning a 2-0 deficit on its head to prevail 3-1 at the Parc des Princes.

Romelu Lukaku fired the Red Devils into the lead with just two minutes on the clock, before Juan Bernat hit back for the home side.

Many had Manchester United down and out but, when Lukaku struck, it gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, his coaching team and the supporters reason to dream.

And their prayers were answered right at the death with Marcus Rashford scoring to send United through and the travelling support into ecstasy.

Man Utd player one: Romelu Lukaku
There has been a lot written about Lukaku in recent times – something the United star even alluded to when celebrating with Paul Pogba at the final whistle.

But the Belgian responded to his critics with a brace on the biggest stage of all.

Some reports have claimed United could sell Lukaku to bring in Juventus hitman Paulo Dybala.

But, when he plays like this, why would they?

It appears the powerhouse could be about to become a key player in the big games for United. And Solskjaer, now, has reason to trust him.

Man Utd player two: Scott McTominay
It has been a strange start to life at United for midfielder Scott McTominay.

Last season, he was resented by fans after Jose Mourinho would often drop Paul Pogba to play the Scotland international instead.

But, against PSG last night, he was immense.

The youngster coped with the combative nature of Marquinhos and Marco Verratti in the middle of the park.

And he now looks like he can live up to the Darren Fletcher comparison that Solskjaer recently made.

Man Utd player three: Victor Lindelof
A year ago, questions were being asked about whether Victor Lindelof was good enough for United.

But now we have an answer.

Keeping Kylian Mbappe was never going to be easy. At times, it looked as if the France international had his number for the second game on the spin.

But Lindelof is a plucky character and his calm and composed performance showed he is good enough for United after all.

Good enough to emulate Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand, though? Only time will tell.
