Manchester United have the odds stacked against them for the trip to PSG but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is invoking their finest hour. Having endured such a long run without a goal towards the end of previous year, Lukaku's four strikes in a week mean he is now United's top Premier League goalscorer, and has staked a claim to be their central striker for the clash with Paris St-Germain in the Champions League in midweek.
"We know what we're capable of". We did it away to Juventus, a very tough game, and very few people do that. "It's not going to be easy".
Alexis Sanchez added to a stacked injury list when he suffered apparent knee ligament damage during Saturday's 3-2 win over Southampton and, with Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata having all succumbed to muscular injuries of late, Solskjaer could be without 10 senior first-team players.
The England global left-back said: "We just need to defend well and when we get our chances, take them".
United still had one more goal up their sleeve though - a strike in the 88th minute by Lukaku that gave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men their 17th win of the season.
However, Young is confident the spirit that fuelled Saturday's 3-2 fightback victory over lowly Southampton will serve his team well once again.
"They know they're part of a special club that can do something like this.
Players that can create and players that can score wonderful goals and I'm sure we'll have a strong enough squad". Couple of loan spells and unconvincing matches were simply not good enough for him to become a starter, but with Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera - to name just few - now injured, Pereira got his chance to shine.
"I think he can continue to improve so much more at a club where he has stability and can be the main man on and off the pitch".
United, who are suffering from an injury crisis of their own, will need all the help they can get as they attempt to recover from the 0-2 defeat to PSG at Old Trafford in the first leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie.
