After beating Leicester City last weekend, the interim Manchester United boss hopped on a private plane to Lyon to watch the French champions? surprise 2-1 defeat ? their only loss in Ligue 1 this season.
PSG travel to Old Trafford on Tuesday night for arguably the biggest test of Solskjaer?s reign so far, and he says he learned several things from his scouting trip – not least how quick Kylian Mbappe is in the flesh.
Solskjaer was joined by assistant Mike Phelan in Lyon for the game (Picture: BT Sport) Asked what he gained from watching PSG, Solskjaer explained: ?I think it?s difficult to compare games because when they play in the league, they know they are going to win the league anyway.
?They approach games maybe different to what they do in the Champions League.

?But it?s always nice to see players live because you get an impression on television and you see them over a period, but when you see live you see different spaces, different patterns, principles.
?And you see how lightening quick Mbappe is! You just try to do due diligence as it?s called. You just go and watch whatever opponent.?
