Scott McTominay Hailed as "Brilliant" and "Fantastic" by Jose Mourinho

Scott McTominay Hailed as

However one potential issue with Mourinho's claim that he would only feel comfortable starting players who were 100 per cent came with the fact that he trusted Ander Herrera from the start. He pressed a lot, really high; we started the match not giving one inch to [Ever] Banega. I think Scott was brilliant.

"He was good in possession, good in pressing. You don't have other questions", he asked.

They looked nervous from the offset and struggled to gather any form of a foothold in the game. The stats are what it is.

Mourinho also seemed to question the United medical staff after Herrera's early withdrawal, saying: "I think it is a bad injury. We didn't play him to give him more work and more protection, but it looks like he was not fully fit".

The Red Devils showed a toothless display in the attacking third with Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Pogba unable to create any clear-cut opportunities.




The former Manchester City winger continues at right-back for Sevilla while N'Zonzi, who had a spell in England with Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City sits in front of the defence. Sometimes you have 15 shots, but 13 of them were what I call statistic shots.

"And everybody knows that I'm not big friends with Roy Keane or Paul Scholes, but I will ask them: 'When your team lost the ball, did you drop back?" The Spaniard has made more saves than any first-choice 'keeper in the Premier League this season, which is remarkable when you twig that he plays for the team sitting in second place.

Nonetheless, the Man United manager is confident that Old Trafford will get behind his team in three weeks to earn a quarterfinal spot. "Is that hard? Yes".

United have progressed to the Champions League knockout stages for the first time since the 2013-14 campaign but Manchester City, Spain's Barcelona and Real Madrid along with Paris St Germain are considered favourites for the title.

When United's next game arrived, Mourinho was adamant that Pogba would feature against Huddersfield in the FA Cup but, on the morning of the match, the 24-year-old announced himself unavailable because he was feeling unwell.
