Man Utd v Sevilla: Another tactical Jose masterclass needed

He needs another on Tuesday when Manchester United welcome Sevilla to Old Trafford in their second leg round of 16 clash.

News Agency of Nigeria reports that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp claimed in his post-match interview that his side should have had a penalty when Sadio Mane was challenged by Marouane Fellaini and they deserved at least a point.

At Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho's side should have the encouragement to attack from the off, but they still need to be wary of conceding an away goal, which could be detrimental, as they would then have to score at least twice, to stay in the competition.

Delivering two major trophies last season and a return to the Champions League represented a foundation base upon which to build, and while they are not at Europe's elite level yet there are signs that something big is building.

Even if Paul Pogba was fit I don't think he would get in the United team, as he has suffered from the confusion that Alexis Sanchez's arrival has brought to the team.

But sources have told ESPN FC there is hope that Anthony Martial will recover from the thigh problem that has kept him out for the last two games.

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

Marcus Rashford: 'I'm learning most in training'
In Saturday's 2-1 win over arch-rivals Liverpool, Manchester United's Marcus Rashford eclipsed Sanchez's form. The first goal against Liverpool was just another proof of this claim.

In a game of musical chairs, Bradford goes from the Vikings to the Arizona Cardinals. It was a wise move to bring back McCown on a one-year, $10 million deal.

Doubters may have been quietened by successive wins over Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Liverpool, with a mix of performances ultimately doing enough to give the Red Devils a cushion in second place.

"He was getting minutes and getting experience and the best way to improve is to be on the pitch".

"I'm really happy - probably I think that Gareth Southgate doesn't mind that". United remain the favourites to progress, but if Correa arrives fired up and focused, Sevilla might just have a chance of upsetting the odds.

The first leg at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium ended in a 0-0 draw, but it was only because David De Gea made one of the saves of his career to deny Muriel a point-blank header.

Daley Blind, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are also absent as he tries to guide United into the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2014. "There are plenty more to play, and as long as I am playing well and the manager's happy, I want to be pulling on the shirt".

Mourinho will therefore have to make a late decision over whether to include Pogba in his starting line-up against the Spanish side.
