Manchester United vs Sevilla

Pogba sat out of Manchester United's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday after sustaining a thigh injury in training on Friday.

Mourinho-managed teams, too, are hard to beat when they are ahead - a fact highlighted by a prolific Liverpool side's struggles to break down United after the Portuguese set his side up defensively in the second period following Marcus Rashford's two-goal salvo in the first 24 minutes.

But the Frenchman now faces a race against time to be fit for the Champions League last 16 second leg clash against Seville at Old Trafford tomorrow night.

But Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial both took part as United begin a big week, which also includes an FA Cup quarter final against Brighton.

Tonight's opposition Sevilla have had mixed form since they met United at home and have fallen away from the top four.

"I think we are not one of the best teams in the competition", he told a pre-match news conference.

"I do not feel like we have any advantage at this moment". It was the kind of game that United would have dropped points in earlier in the season. But it was different at Selhurst and that propelled Jose Mourinho's side to a 2-1 win against Liverpool on Saturday.

Despite being second in the Premier League table to arguably one of the strongest teams in Europe, Manchester City, Mourinho is apparently looking to spend big money during the off-season. It came in United's 3-2 Champions League win over AC Milan at the San Siro in 2010. But a second-half comeback was typical more of the teams of old.

It was the 20-year-old's first English Premier League start since the 2-2 draw with Burnley last December - and former Inter Milan, Ajax Amsterdam and Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer opined that it was a pity that the Englishman was managed by a results-orientated coach like Mourinho. But when you draw away, even though it's a 0-0, we get to decide the tie at home.

"I think the Europa League final was our most important match in the last few years, because we won it and that victory brought us to our natural habitat, which is the Champions League", said Mourinho. It's something you've got to accept so that's where I am at.
