However, there was better news regarding the fitness of Anthony Martial as the French global returned to full training today and has been passed fit to take on Sevilla tomorrow night which will be a big boost for the Red Devils.

Sevilla have never won in six trips to England (D3 L3), although on their most recent visit they emerged with a 2-2 draw from their trip to Liverpool FC on Matchday one this season.

In many ways, Sevilla's game was also the more significant because their position was more desperate to begin with and the consequences of defeat more immediately apparent in terms of the club's financial state going forward.

United's performance against Liverpool worked without Pogba because Mourinho employed a low block with two holding midfielders, with the emphasis more on the visitors to attack.

They've also spent this season looking up at Manchester City, now 13 points ahead of United at the top of the table.

"But when a team reaches the last eight anything is possible". From the first whistle he was running at Trent Alexander-Arnold, driving him back and unsettling the Liverpool defence.

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

Two goals from Kenedy, on loan from Chelsea, and a Matt Ritchie strike were enough for a second successive Premier League home win for Rafael Benitez's side.

The hard-won, but fragile optimism can easily be punctured. In that scenario, Sevilla would be compelled to throw caution to the wind and there's abundant evidence of them crumbling defensively against superior opposition. Since then he's only netted once, in the FA Cup against Yeovil Town.

The challenge for Mourinho is to pass on his knowledge of how to handle the big occasions, especially the more inexperienced ones in his squad. They have every reason to expect to join Manchester City and Liverpool in the quarterfinals.

On Saturday against Liverpool, it was impressive.

As a result, it seems a handshake will do little to brush the drama under the carpet and Robbie Fowler drew up a damning theory on Pogba and Mourinho in his column for the Mirror.

"Maybe they are not in the best shape. but still they win ugly".

With five Europa League triumphs in the past 12 years - lifting the trophy three successive times between 2014 and 2016 - their European pedigree is excellent. He is starting to adapt to how Mourinho wants him to play.

"I've tried all sorts of different things to bring the best out of me over the years and I can say that I've given my best, so I can look back with no regrets". I'm really happy too.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said that he is "happy with the decision" of referee Craig Pawson to not send off Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp during Saturday's clash at Old Trafford. He fights for the team, he runs a lot.
