Ball in Manchester United's court as Old Trafford prepares for Sevilla

Ball in Manchester United's court as Old Trafford prepares for Sevilla

Even if Paul Pogba was fit I don't think he would get in the United team, as he has suffered from the confusion that Alexis Sanchez's arrival has brought to the team.

Manchester United were given a huge boost in confidence as they managed to put daylight between them and their arch-rivals, Liverpool, after a deserved 2-1 victory over them at Old Trafford on Saturday.

But United will have fond memories of the last occasion we welcomed a Spanish side to Old Trafford - in May previous year when the Reds booked a place in the UEFA Europa League final as a 1-1 draw completed a 2-1 aggregate win over Celta Vigo in the semi-finals of the competition.

Mourinho insisted the game against Sevilla was "more important" than the one just gone against Liverpool.

Jose Mourinho gives a priceless assessment of Man United's "complete performance" versus Liverpool and follows up with a message to his critics.

Manchester United came into this fixture the bookmakers underdogs for the first time since the 1980s but, in the end, Jose Mourinho's tactics worked out for the best as his side eked out a 2-0 win.

MANCHESTER - Paul Pogba could yet be available for Manchester United's Champions League meeting with Sevilla, according to Jose Mourinho.

The two midfielders Angel Gomes and Ethan Hamilton were also not included in the training session.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic also trained with the squad although Mourinho did not offer any clues as to whether the Swedish striker might be involved against Sevilla. "I'm not sure anymore".

United will be without Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind, who all missed out through various problems.

The clash gets underway at 7.45pm on Tuesday. The 35-year-old, from Willemstad, has already handled four Champions League matches this term - including games involving Liverpool, Chelsea and Celtic during the group stage. The biggest games at this time of the season.

"Not yet, but when a team reaches the last eight, anything is possible", Mourinho said. Now, I have only one name in my mind.

"We are going to give everything we have out on the field because, apart from it being a huge game, afterwards there is an worldwide break and that will give us a chance to recover".

"We're going to try and be courageous in an iconic stadium and against a great opponent, we're excited as we can only be by the prospect of achieving something important, which is being in the quarter-finals after 60 years", Castro said before leaving to England. They register one win on the road, but it was against a lowly Malaga side that can't get a win to save their lives at the moment.
