When the draw was made for the Champions League last-16, Man United would not have been favourites to overcome Paris Saint-Germain.

But the Premier League club's fortunes have shifted markedly. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains unbeaten as manager after replacing Jose Mourinho.

And he has them back in the Top 4 when that goal seemed impossible. Now the challenge is to take on PSG.

Ex-Chelsea winger Pat Nevin joined us as always on a Monday and he's making United favourites.

The absence of Neymar and Edinson Cavani is one reason.

"The 'No Neymar' is really big," he said.

"Having watched a few games in the French First Division this season, Neymar and Mbappe together have been out of this world. Absolutely out of this world."

With PSG weakened and United gathering momentum, the pendulum is swinging towards Old Trafford.

"Man United have got a great chance. I would put them favourites for the tie now because they're playing that well," he said.

Nevin also added that Ligue 1 "doesn't even test" PSG every week.

Pat also discussed his former club Chelsea who suffered embarrassment in a 6-0 loss at Manchester City. What does that mean for under-pressure manager Maurizio Sarri? You can watch the full chat above on the video player.
