Pogba misses United's pre-Sevilla training

Pogba misses United's pre-Sevilla training

Yet, the Belgian almost made the breakthrough with United's best move of the opening period when he latched onto Alexis Sanchez's layoff and his powerful effort was turned behind by Sergio Rico.

With Jose Mourinho believed to be keen to splash the cash in the coming transfer window, the latest reports suggest that he wants to lure a £70 million rated Brazilian to Manchester United and make him one of the club's highest paid stars.

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. Sevilla fell to a demoralizing 2-0 defeat to Valencia at home and will look to bounce back.

"It's a very special occasion for Sevilla, a really important game and we dream of a place in the quarter finals, it's a big competition and to reach that stage would be momentous for us".

Mourinho has confirmed that a number of players will be available for the clash including French duo Anthony Martial and Paul Pogba, both of who missed the Liverpool clash on Saturday.? But I think when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen. I don't know whether Sanchez deserves to be in the line-up but if he is then it certainly shouldn't be at Rashford's expense.

Indeed, of Sevilla's 10 efforts on goal in the first period only one weak Muriel effort forced De Gea into making a save.

However, I can see him having another frustrating evening, knowing he's not got the supply or support to show his potential, and will be left day dreaming of playing against Barca for Real Madrid next season. First Chelsea, then Liverpool, and now Sevilla.

The Champions League round of 16 completes on Wednesday, and the draw for the quarterfinal round will take place on Friday, with no restrictions placed on which teams can be paired together.

This team still have issues despite the 3-0 win at the weekend but they are slowly getting a response. We will have four defenders and I have to decide which players.
