Mourinho delivers Paul Pogba fitness update ahead of Manchester United vs Sevilla

Mourinho delivers Paul Pogba fitness update ahead of Manchester United vs Sevilla

Carrick, who was capped 34 times by England, underwent a procedure to correct an irregular heart rhythm, having initially felt unwell during the EFL Cup win over Burton Albion last September.

"Liverpool was Liverpool, it was a big match, a match against a direct competitor for the top four, but nothing is decided yet".

"We didn't take it for granted, but it was just what we did for so, so many years".

"I can imagine that if we lose against Sevilla, everyone will have forgotten what we did in the last couple of weeks".

That team news will be out at 18:45GMT, so stick with us until then, and beyond, for build-up and then live updates from Old Trafford as Mourinho looks to guide United into the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in three years. But when you draw away, even though it's a 0-0, we get to decide the tie at home.

Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella was also keen to move on from Saturday's 2-0 loss to Valencia and focus on a potentially historic European tie.

"I don't think we're candidates to win the competition". "We are going to try to prove that we are better [than the first leg]".

Sevilla were the better team in the first leg against the English giants but they failed to score goals and ended the game with a goalless draw.




Sanchez has scored once in nine appearances since arriving from Arsenal in the January transfer window and he will be back in the spotlight on Tuesday night when United take on Sevilla for a place in the Champions League quarterfinals.

"I do not feel like we have any advantage at this moment".

"We have put a lot of planning and preparation into this game with different strategies and ideas on how we can hurt them". We have to know where we made mistakes to improve.

The Belgian forward was in solid form for the Red Devils as he helped to set up one of Marcus Rashford's two goals as Mourinho's men claimed an important victory over their bitter local rivals.

The only English opponents they have faced in the Champions League were Leicester City last season, a fixture at the end of which they were on the wrong side of a 3-2 aggregate score.

However, Rashford insists he is learning more on the training ground from his boss than on the pitch on matchday.

"I understood that I wouldn't be playing as many games, but I've been training hard and trying to keep fit".
