Manchester United midfielder, Ander Herrera has said that his side’s chance of qualifying for the Champions League quarter-final stage would be ‘difficult’.

Herrera stated this following Man United’s 2-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League round of 16 first leg encounter on Tuesday night at the Old Trafford.

Goals from Presnel Kimpembe and Kylian Mbappe gave Thomas Tuchel’s men all three points against Ole Gunnar Solkjaer’s side.

Speaking after the match, Herrera told MUTV: “I think this result is not going to hurt us because of the way we lost.

“If you lose being worse than the opponent, that could hurt us. But I think until the corner I couldn’t say we were better (but) the game was under control.

“They were not creating too many problems, we neither but 0-0 could have been an OK result because everything would be open.

“Now it is more difficult for us, but we have good examples (of getting good away wins).”

Herrera added: “But this is football. Something to learn (from). We can’t concede goals from set-pieces against this kind of teams because everything turns much, much (more) difficult, much harder.

“I think we are not going to lose time thinking about what happened tonight.

“Right now, we have to think about the FA Cup against Chelsea and keep our place in the top four.

“Chelsea is a big game for us away. FA Cup is a competition that we lost the final last year (when) deserving to win, in my opinion.

“So, we have a good opportunity to fight for FA Cup and keep our position in the top four.”
