Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has rallied his teammates ahead of the crucial second leg meeting with Spanish champions Barcelona in the Champions League.

In his pre-match thoughts via Goal, De Gea called on the other Manchester United players to step up their game ahead of the Barcelona clash.

The Red Devils boosted their chances of a top-four finish in the Premier League with a 2-1 home win over West Ham United at the weekend.

Star player Paul Pogba scored twice for the Red Devils from the spot either side of the halftime interval to secure three points for the Old Trafford outfit.

Spanish international De Gea said that the Manchester United players have to improve on their outing against the Hammers when they take on Spanish champions Barcelona on Tuesday.

Manchester United trail 1-0 from the first leg played at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.

Luke Shaw put through his own net as early as the 12th minute to give Barcelona the first leg advantage ahead of the second leg clash at the Nou Camp.

Spanish La Liga leaders Barcelona rested several players at the weekend in the goalless draw at lowly club Huesca in their league meeting.

Barcelona need to win just three of the last six league games of the season to win a second successive Spanish La Liga title.
