Paul Pogba fears Manchester United are not learning from their mistakes when it comes to winning trophies.

United have been left licking their wounds following Wednesday night's Carabao Cup semi-final defeat to neighbours Manchester City at Old Trafford.

The fallen giants have now lost four semi finals in the last 12 months under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, which is more than Sir Alex Ferguson lost during his 26-year reign as boss.

United have not won silverware since 2017 and Pogba admits things will not change until his side learn how to win the biggest games of the season.

The French World Cup winner said: "It is very annoying to lose because there is a trophy behind all of this. We have to do better, we have to do better for sure.

"It is about details. Details make the difference all of the time and now, when it is big games like this, it is details and at set-pieces we lost. We have to learn, because it is not the first time.

"We have to learn, we have to get through this because, after this, there are big games coming up. Next time, we will do better.

"The club is built on winning and big things, so that is all we want to get - the big stuff.

"We are still going far and that is what we want, but now it is about details. It is good to improve, but we have to go to the next step now, all of us."

United will be looking to bounce back when Watford visit Old Trafford in the FA Cup third round on Saturday - and Pogba insists the disappointment of losing to City must not derail their season.

He added: "There is no time to be disappointed for a week because we know where we are. We don't have time to be disappointed. We will get through this and go again.

"It is difficult and it is going to be difficult, and you learn from these games. It is going to hopefully help us to get better and have a positive result in the next games.

"Football and playing for Manchester United is not easy, it will never be easy, but it makes the victory prettier and more beautiful when we get through a tough time, then we get through this.

"That is all we want. That is what the fan wants, that is what the team wants. Everyone wants this."
