Mourinho Talks Up United's UCL Chances, Confirms Martial Return, Unsure Of Pogba

Mourinho Talks Up United's UCL Chances, Confirms Martial Return, Unsure Of Pogba”

With Pogba missing, Mourinho could well go for the same starting line-up as we saw against Liverpool. Scott McTominay formed a sturdy midfield partnership with Nemanja Matic, who seemed to be more comfortable with the Scottish youngster's tendency to stay behind and defend while going forward, unlike Pogba.

Man United held an open training session on Monday morning before Jose Mourinho spoke to the press. Ander Herrera and Marcos Rojo are yet to be back in training but may yet make it to the squad for this tie. It came in United's 3-2 Champions League win over AC Milan at the San Siro in 2010. There were, however, wins against both Malaga and Athletic Bilbao in between that sandiwch of defeats.

Asked after the win over Liverpool if Pogba would be available for Sevilla, manager Jose Mourinho said: "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".

Marcus Rashford rose to the occasion in his first Premier League start since Boxing Day, scoring twice against Liverpool. The result now means that Mourinho's side have beaten everyone inside the top six this season apart from rivals Manchester City, in what has been a good run for the Old Trafford outfit.

Antonio Valencia has been effective in most games this season and should keep his place as a right-back while Luke Shaw could replace Ashley Young, who put in a superb shift at the weekend.

The 36-year-old club captain has featured sparingly for United this season, having been sidelined earlier in the campaign due to a heart scare.

And Red Devils boss Mourinho chose to single out Lukaku for special praise after Saturday's important 2-1 victory over Liverpool FC. But a second-half comeback was typical more of the teams of old. They rarely allowed United any meaningful time on the ball during the first leg and created a number of chances. I am expecting United to go through, mainly because this is the poorest Sevilla side in years.

With Manchester United now trailing table-topping Manchester City by 13 points and likely to finish a distant second this term, Jose Mourinho has plenty of work to do to get his side up to the standard of title challengers ahead of next season.

"There comes a time when, as much as you don't like, your body tells you it's time to stop playing football", he said.
