Key Manchester United player set to miss Sevilla clash

Key Manchester United player set to miss Sevilla clash

At the same time, it has to be remembered that Sevilla were the team disappointed with the fact that the first leg ended goalless. He started, he had a good match and I'm not just speaking about scoring goals because, for me, the analysis of a performance is much more than analysing the number of goals or assists.

"I read some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank de Boer", Mourinho said.

The former Juventus man has not been at his best in recent matches, but has impressed a lot this season, his mini-slump aside. Beyond an FA Cup win at Yeovil Town and his home debut against Huddersfield Town in early February, Sanchez's contributions have been somewhat covert to this point.

Of course, as Mourinho would himself retort, the low block proved to be enough to negate Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham at Old Trafford this season.

Carrick is, though, expected to remain at United as part of Jose Mourinho's coaching staff next season. That was the first official meeting between both clubs, and it will also be the first official match for the Andalucia side at Old Trafford.

1 - Starting with the 2011 final, Manchester United have only won one of their last eight Champions League knockout games (D3 L4). The biggest games at this time of the season. We don't have many with that know-how.

"I'd back Rashford for another double but I don't know whether he's going to play".

Tuesday's game will be the first time that Sevilla have visited Old Trafford for a competitive European fixture.

The last-16 tie is delicately balanced at 0-0 after Mourinho resorted to type by concentrating on obtaining a clean sheet at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan three weeks ago.

Well after the shambles of Arsenal's last home game in this competition, when they almost blew it against Ostersund, Arsene Wenger will play a strong line-up with a free weekend to follow.

With Pogba and Herrera doubtful, Mourinho has little options in the midfield.

"Beforehand we never looked like a team that could win the Champions League, but with him there stranger things have happened", Macari told Goal recently.

In addition, Lingard will incur a suspension on his next Champions League yellow card and, given Rashford's brace against Liverpool, you'd think Mourinho would want to give the in-form boy wonder the nod.

McTominay showed experience beyond his years against Liverpool.

Often criticized for failing to bring through youngsters at the clubs he has managed, Mourinho has made the development of McTominay one of his special projects in his 20 months at United.
