MANCHESTER, England (AP) — When the reality check came for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United, it wasn't even handed out by a full-strength Paris Saint-Germain.
A 2-0 victory in the Champions League — consigning Solskjaer to the first loss 12 games under his caretaker command — was produced by PSG on Tuesday without two of the French club's fearsome forwards.
PARIS (AP) — Paris Saint-Germain fans were no doubt brimming with confidence about facing Manchester United when the Champions League draw was made nearly two months ago.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's winning start at Manchester United came to end on Tuesday as his team needed a late comeback just to salvage a 2-2 draw against Burnley in the Premier League.

LONDON (AP) — Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shifted the acclaim onto his players as a Manchester United managerial record was broken. Juergen Klopp praised the character of title-chasing Liverpool. Maurizio Sarri, though, chose Saturday to eviscerate his Chelsea squad.

"Ole's at the wheel," the United faithful chant about their new manager. "Tell me how good does it feel."
Much, much better than it did under Jose Mourinho.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Paul Pogba is feeling so good at Manchester United these days that he's practicing his goal celebrations during the pre-game warmup.

Pogba scored another two goals and added an assist as United continued its resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with a free-flowing 4-1 win over Bournemouth in the Premier League on Sunday.
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Paul Pogba scored twice as interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer marked his first home match in charge of Manchester United with a 3-1 win over bottom club Huddersfield in the English Premier League on Wednesday.
Solskjaer, whose first match in charge on Saturday was a 5-1 victory at Cardiff, received a warm reception from the crowd as he returned to Old Trafford 11 1/2 years after representing them as a player.
Paul Pogba was soccer's most expensive player two years ago. He was lifting the World Cup with France only five months ago.
So how has it gotten to the stage where, on Sunday, one of the world's most talented midfielders didn't even get off the bench for Manchester United in one of its biggest matches of the season against Liverpool?
MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United ended a four-match Premier League winless run as Jose Mourinho's sixth-placed team eased to a 4-1 victory over rock-bottom Fulham in the Premier League on Saturday.

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial scored either side of halftime as Manchester United beat Everton 2-1 to secure a much-needed victory for under-pressure manager Jose Mourinho on Sunday.

PARIS (AP) — Far away seem the days when Paul Pogba was praised for the mature displays that helped France win the World Cup.

LONDON (AP) — At Manchester United, you can criticize the team on Jose Mourinho's terms.

But players giving a glimpse of what it's like at United right now run the risk of repercussions.
LONDON (AP) — Far from turning Manchester United back into title contenders, Jose Mourinho is instead matching the lows of David Moyes.
A 3-1 loss at West Ham on Saturday left United with 10 points from seven games — matching the club's previous worst English Premier League start under Moyes in 2013 immediately after Alex Ferguson's retirement.
Defending champion Manchester City is already nine points ahead of its 10th-place neighbor, which was runner-up last season.
What to watch in the leading soccer competitions in Europe this weekend:

Chelsea winger Eden Hazard, who scored the winner at Anfield on Wednesday after dribbling past several opponents, said "we won against one of the best in the world at the moment." Liverpool is the only team with a 100 percent record in the league after six games.
