United were charged with blocking stairways and throwing objects, and PSG with setting off fireworks, and throwing of objects.

The French champions ran out 2-0 winners, handing United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer his first defeat since taking over from Jose Mourinho.

United midfielder Paul Pogba was sent off late on and will miss the return leg in Paris.

After a heated first half, the visitors were clinical with two quick-fire goals; first Presnel Kimpembe turned home at the far post from an Angel Di Maria corner in the 53rd minute before Kylian Mbappe finished off from another Di Maria assist in the 60th, giving United a huge task to overcome.

It would have been worse for United but for some great saves from David de Gea.
