Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Manchester United are not yet finished in the Champions League despite a 2-0 defeat to PSG in the Champions League last 16.

The interim Norwegian coach watched United overwhelmed by the French champions in the second half at Old Trafford with Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe netting to leave PSG in the driving seat before the second leg in Paris on March 6.

"You can't lay down and say it's over," said Solskjaer, who saw his unbeaten run as United manager end at 12 games with Paul Pogba sent off for a second yellow card in the closing moments.

"We have to play a good game in Paris. They had the momentum after the first goal and controlled the game.

"You could see that we hadn't played at this level for a while and we will have to learn.

"It was an experience that can go either way, it's not going to be a season defining one, it's one we have to learn from.

"We are going to have to go down there, believe in ourselves, play a good game and improve from today obviously.

"Today was a kind of a reality check on the level of the top teams."
