Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has not given up hope of reaching the Champions League semi-finals this season.

United lost the first leg of their quarter-final to Barcelona on Wednesday night.

Pogba, though, believes his team-mates can still go through by winning at Camp Nou next week.

“We have to think about the next one, the next game, get some rest and get focused on Barcelona,” the midfielder said after beating West Ham on Saturday.

“That’s why we play football, to play against those teams, to play those games.”

Pogba scored two penalties as United saw off West Ham at Old Trafford on Saturday, lifting the club to fifth in the Premier League table.

“A Champions League quarter-final is just beautiful. We just have to enjoy it, give our best and trust ourselves.

“The game is not done, it’s not closed. I know it’s Barcelona, we’re playing in their home, but it’s never closed. It’s still 90 minutes.

“The first half is gone, now it’s the second half.”
