Manchester United vs Sevilla

Tottenham and Chelsea took advantage of Liverpool's loss in the battle for the top four with comfortable wins, but Spurs' 4-1 success at Bournemouth was marred by a nasty looking ankle injury suffered by Harry Kane.

Mourinho revealed that he does not know the extent of Paul Pogba's injury which might see the French midfielder miss this game as well while Anthony Martial, who also missed the game against Liverpool, will undergo a late fitness test before the game.

What time does the Manchester United vs Sevilla match start?

It is clear Sevilla will be confronted with the most in-form Manchester United of the season.

The La Liga outfit visit Old Trafford tomorrow evening (7.45pm) in the Champions League.

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol insists that Jurgen Klopp is the second best manager in the Premier League, ahead of Jose Mourinho.

Sanchez, who has scored just once in nine matches for his new side since joining from Arsenal in January, normally plays on the left of a front-three for United, which puts him on the same side of the field as Pogba.

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.

Liverpool see off Porto to reach Champions League last eight
Some Liverpool fans defended him, stating that criticism of the 29-year-old is unnecessary when he has barely played this season. And when called upon after half-time Karius was on hand to deny Vincent Aboubakar's effort from range.

Mourinho clearly would have seen it as a calculated gamble, with Champions League history being largely on United's side as they look to complete the second half of the task by winning at home in the second leg.

The Portuguese coach has won the Champions League twice with Porto and Inter Milan but suggested his United side are not ready to emulate those teams.

"I think with all the minutes around the two goals we conceded then a draw would have been deserved for us, but because we made these two mistakes we have to take the result like it is".

"We'll be playing 100 percent to try and achieve that".

The expectations created by United's illustrious name and their roster of big name players far exceeded the actual level of their performance in Andalusia. The team are second in the table and have a nine-point cushion for a Champions League place, which has been the focus in each of the last four seasons, during which they finished in the top four just once. I know it is very hard to go through.

The 200th league matchup between United and Liverpool, wasn't the most glamorous of games, but it was fascinating in its own right.

Rivals Watch: Following the four ties that were played last week, there are four more last-16 games taking place this week. They have every reason to expect to join Manchester City and Liverpool in the quarterfinals. 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.
