Paul Pogba has warned his Manchester United team-mates that the job is not yet done after their 1-0 victory over Celta Vigo in the Europa League last week.

The Red Devils are looking to book their place in the Europa League final later this month and will host the Spanish side in the return leg of their semi-final clash at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

Manchester United know that winning the Europa League this season could represent their best chance of Champions League qualification, with Jose Mourinho’s men currently in fifth place in the table.

Pogba helped Manchester United seal a 1-0 win over Celta Vigo in the first leg last week thanks to Marcus Rashford’s second-half free-kick in Spain.

The France international is confident that Manchester United can set up a final clash against either Ajax or Lyon, but says the Red Devils are not taking anything for granted.

Pogba told MUTV: “It was a good result for us against Celta, and a very important goal.

“We now need to focus on the second leg and have another big game coming up too, against Arsenal. We have to get our head into this game, and then we can think about the second leg.

“I feel good, but you have to be careful as well. It’s not finished, we won 1-0 in Spain and the team did a good job, but we’ll have to be focused for the next game.

“It’s the objective for us, and it would be great to win the competition. As I said, we’re not there yet, we have to keep going and be focused on the next game.”
