PSG go away to Manchester United in the last 16 of the Champions League tonight

United have been charged with the throwing of objects by fans and blocking of stairways.

Di Maria was clearly in ecstasy after the goal and wasted no time in taunting the fans Old Trafford with abusive gestures during the celebrations.

Di Maria was the architect for PSG's victory, which will only further rile those who remember his failed United stint well.

United now face a fine for the bottle incident involving Di Maria, who took the corner that led to PSG's opening goal for Presnel Kimpembe and also set up the second for Kylian Mbappe as the French champions seized control of the last 16 tie.

Eventually, it was made clear that Pogba had been shown a second yellow card for his poorly timed challenge on Dani Alves, having already been booked in the first half.

Later, he blew kisses to the stands and imitated drinking from a bottle that was hurled at him by a fan.

In addition, Man United captain on the night Ashley Young also "pushed" Di Maria into the hoardings in the first stanza, with fans enjoying every bit of the action.

Di Maria stayed down for an extended period of time while players argued with each other and complained to the referee Daniele Orsato.

Di Maria's Old Trafford return was filled with drama and controversy.

There wasn't much doubt which way it was going to go for Angel di Maria.

Speaking on RTE Sport, former Liverpool midfielder Didi Hamann felt the Englishman should have been sent off: "I think he should have gone. If you tease him, it does not make him weaker", said his manager Thomas Tuchel, summing up his contribution perfectly, even noting Di Maria's weak start to the game as he won just one of his nine duels. There are still 90 minutes left.
