Cape Town - Andreas Pereira is hoping he has done enough to keep his place in the Manchester United side for the clash with Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian, who has had his ups and downs since arriving at Old Trafford, inspired the comeback against Southampton on Saturday with a stunning curling effort from distance.

The 23-year-old now hopes he has done enough to keep his place in the side for the clash in Paris.

Alexis Sanchez has joined United's lengthy list for a match that Paul Pogba is suspended for, meaning Pereira could well start as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side look to overturn a 2-0 deficit and progress from the last-16 tie.

"It's a very important win for us," he told MUTV. "We showed big spirit and, hopefully now, we can take it on to Wednesday and show it again.

"I'm just here to help the team and hopefully I can keep helping.

"The manager shows a lot of trust in me and I'm very thankful for that. I just want to do all I can on the pitch.

"We're back in the top four and hopefully we can keep going and get the Champions League spot."
