This was some performance against the Ligue 1 champions and last season’s finalists.

United in their new zebra print away strip had once again earned their stripes in the French capital.

United’s last visit to the Parc des Princes got Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the manager’s job permanently.

Marcus Rashford was the hero that night with a last-minute penalty and he did it again.

This time it was the 87th minute as he received a ball from Paul Pogba, turned his man and drove a shot into the far bottom corner.

Manchester United in control

Manchester United had taken a deserved lead in the 23rd minute from the penalty spot.

Martial won it with a driving run that Abdou Diallo could only stop with a foul.

Now, Bruno Fernandes had ended his run of 18 successive penalties scored in the league for Sporting Lisbon and United with his miss against Newcastle.

It didn’t cost in the end in that game as they ran out 4-1 winners but what it had done is plant a seed of doubt.

Kaylor Navas was ready for the trademark jump before the kick and went the right way to save it.

The only problem was he was about a foot off his line when he did it so the kick was retaken.

Now in this position you might think Fernandes, his confidence perhaps shot, might hand the responsibility over for the retake.

He did his little jump again and this time Navas had leaned slightly to his right inviting a low show to the left.

Martial gave the hosts a route back into the match when he nodded Neymar’s inswinging corner into his own net.

However, Rashford repeated his late heroics against Paris St-Germain with a superb winner.

Manchester United marked their return to the Champions League with a fine win at the home of last season’s beaten finalists.
