The Citizens suffered their first domestic defeat of the campaign on Sunday after going down 4-3 to Liverpool at Anfield, allowing United to close the gap at the top to 12 points after they shot down Stoke City on Monday.
And, with City having shown chinks in their armour against the Reds, Pogba says the belief is back in the Red Devils squad that they can still reel in their city rivals this season.
"Obviously we see Manchester City in front of us and they lost," he told Sky Sports.
"They are first so we always want to catch them, so it was good that they lost, so for us we have to think about ourselves.
"It's good that they lose points but we have to go back to winning because we want to catch them again.
"We're not looking to the past. We're just looking to the future and the next games.
"We just want to catch City. We just have to focus on ourselves, keep winning and I think we will be okay."
