Confirmed Line-Ups: UEFA Champions League, Manchester United vs Sevilla

Share

Historically, 21 of the 30 teams to advance from a 0-0 draw in the first leg of the knockout rounds of the Champions League have done so with the return leg at home. "The first leg leaves everything open", said Mourinho.

Predictions: Sevilla have performed well in European championships especially in Europa League final when they ripped Liverpool apart.

"Can he play against Sevilla?".

Against Liverpool on Saturday, Mourinho reverted to his much revered 4-2-3-1 formation, pitting Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic together as the two defensive midfielders, while Alexis Sanchez was utilized as the attacking midfield man. "I don't have a preferred opponent: they are all strong teams, but we will play to win against anyone". Somehow Fellaini avoided a yellow card but he gave way to Pogba in the 60th minute. However, the same ploy backfired against Sevilla, who were more defensively sound than the Reds.

Banega was dynamic in the middle of the park, completing 49 of 52 passes in the first half alone, double that of any Manchester United player.

Manchester United created nothing going forward outside of a late consolation goal from Romelu Lukaku off a corner kick. The game against the Spanish outfit is finely poised after a drab goalless draw at the Ramon Sanchez Pijuan last month, meaning that United progressing to the next round is not cast in stone.

Wissam Ben Yedder was introduced on 70 minutes and he made the ideal impact four minutes later when he broke the deadlock with a clinical finish into the bottom corner.

Former Manchester City winger Jesus Navas is unlikely to make the squad as he recovers from injury. United are nearly two years and £350m into the Mourinho project and they have little progress to show for it.

"It's a big comp, it would be the first time in 60 years for us to get through to this stage".

After two seasons at White Hart Lane, he secured a move to Old Trafford, where he went on to win five Premier League titles and the Champions League and became club captain following Wayne Rooney's departure to Everton in the summer. Not yet, but when a team reaches the last eight anything is possible.

"He did [train] after you left", he told the club's official website.
