Chris Smalling believes Manchester United "nullified" Barcelona, despite losing 1-0 at Old Trafford in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final tie.

Luke Shaw's own goal from a Luis Suarez header ensured Barcelona head into the second-leg favourites next week.

United are left hoping to perform another Champions League miracle and overturn this defeat, but Barca are a more superior and mature side than PSG, leave alone the Red Devils have won only once in the Camp Nou, when they beat Bayern Munich there in the final of 1999. At times it felt like a proper United team - the crowd were behind us, we got out wide and got crosses in.

The England striker has been in good form this season, and has scored 10 goals and made six assists in 27 Premier League outings for the Red Devils.

"We didn't start great, but it was a great goal and movement from Messi and Suarez but they're fortunate it comes off Luke Shaw". It could have gone both ways. We go there with work to be done. After their goal we settled and played well.

"We had very good individual performances in midfield".
