Pogba misses training ahead of Sevilla tie

While this United side may not have accrued the Champions League nous of the Sir Alex Ferguson sides, they still have players such as Juan Mata and Antonio Valencia, who have played in the competition's finals. Mourinho is unsure if he will be fit for the Sevilla game.

The pair was reunited once more after last season's Europa League final, which Mourinho's side won, and the two took a brief moment to catch up with each other after the full-time whistle.

I think he will again here in front of a cracking atmosphere and Roma look good value at even-money to qualify, although I can see it being a tight one.

Paul Pogba was unavailable for the Liverpool game after a training ground accident.

With Anthony Martial available for this match, the manager has a good dilemma on his hands, as he chooses the players to complement his system, and play alongside Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, who will most definitely start the match.

"For me, the performance is globality and I'm really happy with Marcus". Going by his recent choices, not a lot of rotation should be expected. One shows Ronald Koeman, then the Barcelona centre back, trying to block a Lee Sharp shot during United's Champions League draw against Johan Cruyff's... "So, yes, we beat Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool - only City we have not beaten in the current top six - but that means nothing because in football these days you have to prove it every day". "He trained a little bit after you left".

Steven N'Zonzi and Ever Banega should line up in midfield, with the latter taking up a more creative role and the former being the defensive shield to the back-four. Luis Muriel's strength and power will also come in handy, apart from his abilities in front of goal.

The Red Devils have scored 46 goals and conceded only 10, and have used their home form to rise to second in the league and propel their season.

Following Tuesday's tie, with a place in the last eight of the competition at stake, there is the visit of Brighton & Hove Albion to the Theatre of Dreams on Saturday in an Emirates FA Cup quarter-final.

Sevilla have lost all three of their previous UEFA Champions League Round of 16 ties. Although United would be looking to win, they will also have to make sure they do not concede away goals.
