Paul Pogba has said that he would stop playing football if he didn't believe Manchester United can be crowned Premier League champions at the end of the season.
The French international has been missing for the Red Devils since September after picking up an injury on matchday one of the Champions League group stage.
However, Pogba returned to first-team action this weekend against Newcastle and after getting a goal and an assist, the former Juventus midfielder told BBC Sport that he still thinks United can catch their Manchester rivals.

"The season is very long, of course," Pogba said after United's 4-1 victory over the Magpies at Old Trafford. "If I don’t believe that, I’d stop playing.
"If I don’t believe we can still win the league, I better stop. I’ll leave my boots and stop playing football. I’m a believer, we keep fighting."
The Frenchman also spoke about his good friend Romelu Lukaku, who has scored scored 12 goals across all competitions this season, after the Belgian striker ended a four-game goal drought on Saturday.
"I come back and Romelu scores again? I like that," Pogba said. "We’ve got a lot of good players, a lot of talented players. We have to trust each other.
"Romelu is the best striker in the Premier League. We know his quality. We know everything. We don’t worry about him."
