Mourinho: Sevilla clash bigger than Liverpool

"We have another chance tomorrow [Tuesday], we know that United have beaten Chelsea and Liverpool and have come back against Crystal Palace".

On the other hand, Sevilla do not have confirmed absentees but several players are doubtful and could miss the game at Old Trafford this Tuesday.

The clash gets underway at 7.45pm on Tuesday.

Most clubs would be delighted to be sitting second in the Premier League, into the FA Cup quarter-finals and on the verge of a return to the last eight of the Champions League. Paul Pogba is doubtful, and all signs indicate he will be a game-time decision.

The Frenchman had sustained an injury during warm-up before the match but United thrived without him.

One person with knowledge of the decision said Woods reached out to the PGA Tour about his interest in being the next captain. Captains alone will not change the outcome, a position that former global captains Greg Norman and Nick Price have expressed.

That included choosing among the draft prospects that include Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield and others. Elway said in recent weeks he still believed the team could get back into the postseason mix with an upgrade behind center.

The United boss confirmed that Paul Pogba was able to take part in some of today's training session after the media had left but it's not yet clear if the midfielder will be available tomorrow.

Rashford's second, from a near identical position in the box, was slightly fortuitous as his drive flicked in off Alexander-Arnold after Juan Mata had been denied, but it was to prove enough despite Bailly's second half own-goal. McTominay and Matic plugged the gaps and, along with Ashley Young hounding Mohamed Salah, blunted Liverpool's lethal forward line. Even during their current three-match winning run, the 29-year-old's influence has been minimal.

Marcus Rashford was exceptional at Old Trafford and should start yet again.

He knows the fans don't hate him, they're just angry with him, but it was the first time I've heard him use the word "hate" and I just think he's realising he needs to do something to ease the anger. That means United must win.

"He's fantastic. He was one of the best players on the pitch, so I am happy that we have him in the team, and he needs to continue in this way". 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. After the goalless Round of 16 draw, Sevilla have lost two of the four matches they have played. The former Manchester City star is the only one who would be a starter if fit, however, while the absences of Corchia, Carrico and Carole certainly weaken the side defensively. The ball is now in the Mancunian court.
