Paris Saint-Germain manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed his side are close to "achieving what they want" following their 3-0 win over Angers on Wednesday.

PSG moved to within a point of regaining the Ligue 1 title after beating Angers courtesy of goals from Kylian Mbappe, Sergio Ramos and Marquinhos. They cruised to victory without the likes of Lionel Messi and Neymar, who missed out through injury and suspension respectively.

PSG now have a clash with Lens on Saturday where they could win the championship, and Pochettino's focus immediately went to that game following the victory.

He said: "I think it was a good game and a very professional performance. The three points are the most important thing and yes I think we are closer to achieving what we want.

"The title? It's important to win the games, to play well, to be focused on the game and then we'll see. The most important thing is to be focused Saturday and try to put in a very good performance again."

PSG now need just a point to dethrone Lille after Marseille fought back against Nantes to delay their title coronation.

Pochettino is facing an uncertain future at PSG, despite their impressive performances in the league. Their failure in Europe was disappointing and he had also been linked with Manchester United's vacant manager post, though 90min understands Erik ten Hag has agreed to take over instead.
