Ashley Young is confident Manchester United’s mentality will help them overcome Paris Saint-Germain in Wednesday’s vital Champions League second leg.

The Red Devils head to PSG for their last-16 tie with a 2-0 deficit from the first leg at Old Trafford last which remains Solskjaer’s only loss till date as a caretaker manager.

Even though the Ligue 1 leaders are well placed to qualify, Young still believes his team-mates are capable of pulling off another shocker.

The 33-year-old said: “We know what we’re capable of. People can write us off. People were writing us off at the start of the season and people are writing us off now. It’s no different.

“Obviously it’s going to be tough. It’s not going to be easy. We’ve got to go over there, win the game and score goals.

“I’ve got every faith if we defend well and if we create the chances that I know we can do, we can win the game.”

Asked what United need to do better to turn the tie around, Young revealed via Sky Sports: “Win the game.

“That’s exactly what it is. We’ve got to go out there and win the game. We can’t worry too much about them, it’s all about us.”

The Red Devils will be without the services of Paul Pogba following his red card in the first game and that might be too costly to their ambitions.
