Mourinho sweating over United injury woes for Sevilla clash

Mourinho sweating over United injury woes for Sevilla clash

"I didn't rest one single player [against Huddersfield], so we had every player available here", the Portuguese coach was quoted as saying by Sky Sports after the win over Huddersfield.

For Manchester United this season, we have seen glimpses of what Pogba's capable of, and he does have nine assists to his name in the Premier League, but Mourinho should look to change to a more orthodox 4-3-3 formation in order to get the best from the Frenchman.

"Rashford, Herrera, Valencia, I think they have a chance". Paul Pogba had missed the game due to illness and is expected to be back in contention for the Champions League tie which will bolster United's attack and will also provide them with the stability at the back.

Manchester United won 2-0 at Huddersfield Town yesterday, and they did it without: Marcus Rashford, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Antonio Valencia, Daley Blind, Marouane Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"Honestly I think Scott deserves more than what he's getting. It's a big lie that the relation is not good, a big lie that we don't communicate, a big lie that we don't agree with his positions and his involvement in the dynamic of the team". "We know it is a very hard match - but we go for it".

Lukaku's early goal in particular was to be an important one as David Wagner's team responded impressively.

Pogba was conspicuous by his absence for the FA Cup tie given the week had been dominated by speculation over his relationship with Mourinho.

Pogba has reportedly been unhappy in recent weeks at the style Mourinho has adopted, generally playing him alongside Nemanja Matic in a two-man midfield. "Twice cold in front of the keeper, good decisions, good shots, good goals, important goals from us".

Mata played a fine throughball to Lukaku, who charged into the penalty area before cutting back on his right foot and firing low past the wrong-footed goalkeeper Jonas Lossl.

United still managed to send out a strong line-up despite their injury issues, with Romelu Lukaku capping a fine display with a match-winning double.

Where that leaves Pogba's future at Old Trafford is anyone's guess for the moment, although the Daily Star says he won't be offloaded to Real Madrid. "We're a great side and we can achieve things", said Navas.

"You have to ask him how he feels".

"I'm not going to play Hamilton, but I would prefer to have him and I'm pretty sure he's happy to be here".

"They have to do it in 30 seconds, so after two minutes we are cold and this is the only problem". Their compact shape forced Huddersfield to try and pick holes in their back line, which they struggled to do after their initial flurry of chances.
