Midfielder Paul Pogba insists Manchester United players must “focus” on achieving their “two goals” which are “to win the Europa League and the FA Cup” this season.

The Frenchman says the Red Devils are really “pleased with themselves” after they continued their winning habits against Aston Villa on Thursday night.

United thrashed Aston Villa 3-0 to close the gap on fourth-placed Leicester City to a point.

A spot-kick from Bruno Fernandes and goals from Mason Greenwood and Paul Pogba at Villa Park helped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side extend their unbeaten run to 17 games.

And, France midfield star Pogba says United have to continue working hard as they have a lot to do going forward.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the 27-year-old said: "We are really pleased with ourselves because we know we have to carry on. We talk before the game, in training, Manchester is a big club and we want to keep the level up always. The performances of the past few weeks are Manchester United.

"We have to keep working, there is a lot to do."

On Mason Greenwood, he said he will continue to push the 18-year-old to reach greater heights.

"I enjoy to see them play, this kid in training and in the game and will keep pushing him to reach the top, he has so much to do again, he can do even more than what he is doing, he is a talent," he said.

"I have been injured for a very long time, I focused on myself to get back - this year we have two goals, to win the Europa League and the FA Cup, so we focus on that," Pogba concluded.

After the win yesterday United became the first team in Premier League history to win four successive games by a margin of three or more goals.
