Paris Saint-Germain captain Thiago Silva says Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have enjoyed their defeat at the hands of Olympique Lyonnais this past weekend.

PSG suffered their first Ligue 1 defeat of the 2018/19 season when they were down 2-1 on Sunday night by Lyon.

United caretaker manager Solskjaer was in the stands to have a closer look at PSG ahead of the UEFA Champions League last 16 clash between the Red Devils and the Parisians, with the first leg set for Old Trafford next Tuesday.

"Solskjaer must be happy with what he saw," Silva said after the match. "We started the game well, but then we lost our concentration and did not have a good first half.

"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.

"But do not be worried about us. 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.

"We will be facing a great team. Manchester United are on a run of nine wins in 10 games."

PSG are set to be without Brazilian talisman Neymar for the matches against United, with the forward ruled out with a foot injury.
