Sevilla fired 25 shots at De Gea's goal while United only had six attempts, only one of which was on target.

Mourinho stressed the French worldwide gave "stability" to United in their goalless draw against Vincenzo Montella's side.

And everybody knows that I'm not big friends with Roy Keane or Paul Scholes, but I will ask them: 'When your team lost the ball, did you drop back? I say, it's not good, it's not bad. "It's knockout football and it will be a big Champions League night".
