Mourinho hits back at De Boer over Rashford comments

Mourinho hits back at De Boer over Rashford comments

It has also been said - rightly - that atmosphere is lacking at Old Trafford, but that was not the case on Saturday.

What's the team news?

Zlatan Ibrahimovic also trained with the squad although Mourinho did not offer any clues as to whether the Swedish striker might be involved against Sevilla. "The more you do, the easier the results come on the pitch".

Mourinho confirmed that Anthony Martial is back in contention after an injury of his own, and that Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones remain absent. On Tuesday, the Manchester United boss will be able to welcome one player back from the sidelines, although he can still be without as many as six first-team players.

How have we been doing?

However, United have fallen behind their target of challenging for the English title in 2017/18 season. TheAndalusian side, who won the Europa League in three successive seasons prior to the Reds' triumph last term, have won two and lost two of their four games since the first leg on 21 February. Pep Guardiola's side walloped the Ukrainians 7-0 in the second game at the Allianz Arena, the largest margin following a scoreless opening game in Champions League history.

What happened in the first leg? Yes, there were three penalty shots, but Liverpool barely pressured United's keeper David de Gea. Jose Mourinho's men will enter this game against Sevilla looking for a place in the tournament's quarter finals after drawing 0-0 on the road in the first leg.

The former Dortmund duo combined to tee each other up for Arsenal's second and third goals after Shkodran Mustafi had opened the scoring.

How are Sevilla doing? .

Vardy's stunning one-touch volley finish, off of a ideal 30-yard lob pass from Riyad Mahrez, was a reminder of the telepathic connection the two seemed to share during Leicester's once in a lifetime title run two seasons ago.

United are more comfortable this term with eight league games to play and can switch attention to two big cup games at Old Trafford this week against Sevilla on Tuesday and Brighton & Hove Albion four days later. Routine wins against Malaga and Athletic Bilbao followed, but defeat to Valencia in their last game means that the Sevillistas have fallen 11 points behind the top-four.

The last time United made it into the knockout stage, Sir Alex Ferguson was the manager.

What's our record like against Spanish opposition? It is just the all-round game is starting to become more clear. This is what Sevilla have to face and this is a Sevilla side with doubts.

"Don't take too much risk, you pass, you come around the touchline, you have the crosses, you have the set-pieces, you have the finishes from distance, 18 yards, all these things".

What time is the kickoff scheduled for the Champions League Round of 16 match between Manchester United and Sevilla?

When is the quarter-final draw?

Victories against the Blues and the Reds will fill United with confidence heading into their match with Sevilla as the Red Devils begin to firmly hold their grip on second spot in the Premier League. The draw will be streamed live on UEFA's website and broadcast on BT Sport in the UK. I saw it. [Klopp] was very upset with his player and not at the referee.

All games will kick off at 19:45 GMT.
