What a classic Man U-Liverpool match could mean going forward

  • Rashford's understanding with Lukaku was crucial to United's win

The Champions League last-16, second-leg clash at Old Trafford is finely poised after the first leg 0-0 at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

Paul Pogba was involved later in Monday's session at the Aon Training Complex, but Mourinho is unsure yet whether he will be able to face Sevilla.

The players who are certain to miss the tie are Ander Herrera (hamstring), Marcos Rojo (knock), Phil Jones (knock), Daley Blind (ankle) and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, although the Swede has returned to training. Jose Mourinho must hope his cautious tactics in Spain are not what costs his side across the two legs.

Since their first meeting with Sevilla, United have won three league games on the bounce.

The native of Manchester is presently enjoying his third season as a senior United player.

There has been much speculation about the future of Pogba at the Old Trafford.

Klopp was given a talking to by the official after leaving his technical area to berate centre-back Dejan Lovren in the latter stages of his side's 2-1 loss. But the tough games do not stop for United, as they are back in action this week when they welcome Spanish giants Sevilla in the Round of 16 second-leg of the Champions League this week.


However, Mourinho stated Pogba did actually train once journalists had left and left open the possibility that the Frenchman could be fit enough to return.

Incredulity greeted the raising of an electronic board to indicate six minutes of stoppage time, but United held on for victory against Liverpool to end a run of four straight draws and a Europa League defeat.

"If we manage to win the tie and go to last eight, I think [it] is a good achievement but life goes on and hypothetically, we have a quarterfinal to play and we don't go thinking we don't have a chance".

Jose Mourinho's injury problems seem to be improving, if only just, ahead of Sevilla's visit.

United are in a good run of form this season, and they seem to be getting hotter at the flawless time. The Spaniardscurrently sit in fifth position in La Liga, one place worse off than where they finished last season.

"If Pogba's going forward and Sanchez is dropping, you can nearly throw a blanket over them - and that will be music to the ears of opponents".

The Red Devils need to part way with these players and bring some new recruits who are desperate to make a mark and learn. Rashford has experienced the kind of inconsistency many his age show but the 20-year-old offered a timely reminder of his brilliance against Liverpool to also prove to Mourinho he can be relied upon in the big moments. Meanwhile, Sevilla will be without former Manchester City player Jesus Navas, who wasn't included in the 22-man squad that travelled to Manchester because of an injury to his right calf.
