Man Utd stars Fred and Tuanzebe awarded just 4/10 and 5/10 ratings against PSG by L'Equipe despite winning over fans

MANCHESTER UNITED duo Axel Tuanzebe and Fred starred in helping their team defeat PSG – but French newspaper L'Equipe wasn't too impressed.

Tuanzebe was playing his first game for ten months and marshalled superstars Kylian Mbappe and Neymar brilliantly in a coming-of-age performance.

Yet L'Equipe, who are notoriously stingy with their match ratings, only awarded him a five out of ten.

Fred, alongside Scott McTominay, easily won the midfield battle against fomer United star Ander Herrera and ex-Everton man Idrissa Gueye.

That was demonstrated when PSG boss Thomas Tuchel hooked off Gueye at half-time.

Yet L'Equipe only awarded the Brazilian a FOUR out of ten.

In fact, despite United earning a brilliant 2-1 victory in their opening Champions League game against last-season's finallists, only three players even managed sevens.

They were David De Gea, Victor Lindelof and Alex Telles.

Eleswhere, matchwinner Marcus Rashford, fellow scorer Bruno Fernandes and own-goal gaffe Anthony Martial all scored sixes.

But the French newspaper was similarly harsh to PSG, with them splashing the word 'unrecognisable' on their front sport page.

Neymar, Mbappe and former United man Herrera all scored four.

Gueye, who failed to come out for the first half, ranked with a THREE.

Only goalkeeper Keylor Navas came out with any respectability, registering a seven.

The 2-1 victory for United was well deserved according to a delighted Solskajer speaking afterwards.

He told BT Sport: "When you go away to a team like this against Neymar and Mbappe you have to defend well and your keeper will have to make saves.

"Axel Tuanzebe is a top defender and his first game in 10 months was testament to the quality he has.

"Bruno missed two penalties in a row but he's not going to stop taking them – he showed focus and character.

"We know we need 10 points to get through so next week's game is very important. There are so many games."
