Manchester United vs Sevilla

Manchester United vs Sevilla

It was an extremely newsworthy prematch news conference session yesterday with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and midfielder Michael Carrick.

Manchester United are set to face Sevilla in the return leg of the Champions League last-16 clash at Old Trafford.

Despite the significance of Saturday's victory over Liverpool, Mourinho was keen to play down the win ahead of a "more important" meeting with Sevilla.

United fans will be hoping that their side follow the example of Bayern Munich in 2015 when they drew 0-0 in the first leg of their last-16 clash with Shakhtar Donetsk.

Anthony Martial is back and Zlatan Ibrahimovic trained with his United team-mates ahead of the match, but Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Daley Blind remain sidelined.

Ronald De Boer has told Sky Sports his brother Frank "respects Jose Mourinho a lot" after the two became embroiled in a war of words over Marcus Rashford.

Shaw made his return to the United starting lineup in the Champions League against CSKA Moscow in December.

Man Utd 2-1 Sevilla: United will know 0-0 is a unsafe scoreline as an away goal will leave them needing to score at least 2 to progress. "I don't feel we have any advantage at the moment".

Of course, the league titles races in England, France and Germany were all done and dusted by Christmas, with Italy's Serie A the only genuine title race among Europe's big hitting leagues.

Rashford has scored three times in seven Champions League games this term, and he'll be aiming to add to that record if given the chance to do so against Sevilla.

Sevilla were eliminated at this stage a year ago by Leicester City and they are the underdogs ahead of their first ever competitive match at Old Trafford.
