Mourinho: Anything is possible if United reach Champions League quarters

MourinhoKlopp- Cropped

He is not the only player posing selection posers for Mourinho, though, with Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind also nursing knocks which kept them out of United's latest training session.

United head in to the second leg having drawn the first leg 0-0 in Spain so Mourinho will be confident of getting the job done on home soil to book their place in t he quarter finals of the Champions League.

With Pogba missing, Mourinho could well go for the same starting line-up as we saw against Liverpool. It is a very important game for us. There were, however, wins against both Malaga and Athletic Bilbao in between that sandiwch of defeats.

The Portuguese had told reporters on Pogba's possible availability following a win over Liverpool: "I don't know".

"I can imagine that if we lose against Sevilla, everyone will have forgotten what we did in the last couple of weeks". Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford also were far more comfortable in their roles while United caught Liverpool on the counter repeatedly in the early minutes, leading to Rashford scoring twice. But all that good feeling generated inside Old Trafford at the weekend will mean nothing if the Reds fail to win tonight, according to manager Jose Mourinho. The biggest games at this time of the season. Think a 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town, a draw away at Leicester City.

17 - The number of major trophies Carrick has won during his his time at United (6 Community Shields, 5 Premier League titles, 2 League Cups, 1 FA Cup, 1 Champions League, 1 Club World Cup and 1 Europa League).

And Red Devils boss Mourinho chose to single out Lukaku for special praise after Saturday's important 2-1 victory over Liverpool FC.

As things stand after a boring affair in the first leg, it's 0-0, with no away goal for United in Spain, and Sevilla failing to capitalise on their home advantage.

Hello and welcome to VAVEL UK's live minute-by-minute commentary of Manchester United's UEFA Champions League round of 16 second leg against Sevilla.

"I said when he first signed, he is a Man United player, he suits the way we play, he has got that excitement, he always looks forward, he is dynamic and in the end you can judge him in the first few games or whatever but I think over time he will be terrific and I have no doubts about it". I am expecting United to go through, mainly because this is the poorest Sevilla side in years.
