Anthony Martial's poor form continued in Man United's 2-1 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford, where he wasted two great chances.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer refused to pin any blame on Anthony Martial for Manchester United's Champions League defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

Martial blazed over with the goal gaping and the game deadlocked at 1-1 early in the second-half and soon after had a shot blocked from close range by Marquinhos, who restored PSG's lead in the 69th minute.

Solskjaer selected Martial on the left wing for the Frenchman's second start running to accommodate Edinson Cavani up front even though Martial aspires to be recognised as a centre forward.

Martial, who turns 25 on Saturday, has only scored twice this season after a season-best tally of 23 in 2019-20 and Solskjaer reacted despairingly to his wastefulness against PSG in the dugout.

"I thought they were there for the taking at beginning of the second," Solskjaer said. "Until they scored we were the team most likely to get the important 2-1.

"But it wasn't to be and we’ve just got to dust ourselves off and be ready for Tues but before that we go down to London for West Ham so it’s a great week ahead of us.

"I thought [Martial, Rashford and Cavani] posed PSG a threat, I think we've always got the pace against teams, the individual quality as well, and they're getting used to each other.

"So that was positive but missing chances happens and it's a matter of running through the ball and keeping it low and sometimes you miss and that's allowed.

"I thought we played really well and I don’t put any blame... you don’t sit here and blame people. We know we could've done some things better, it was decided by fine margins, their goal from corner kick, it almost looks like he's offside, there was not even an inch in it.

"There is no blame culture in this team, we all look at ourselves and know we could have done bits and bobs better but in general I thought we played a very good and it was a very good game of football."
