"He's always the first out on the training pitch", Mourinho told a news conference on Monday. The biggest games at this time of the season.

Pogba sat out of Manchester United's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday after sustaining a thigh injury in training on Friday.

Despite the Red Devils holding the advantage of playing the second leg at home without a deficit to overcome, Sevilla president Jose Castro believes his side are on the cusp of reaching the last eight of European football's premier cup competition for the first since 1957/58.

Despite being second in the Premier League table to arguably one of the strongest teams in Europe, Manchester City, Mourinho is apparently looking to spend big money during the off-season.

As things stand after a boring affair in the first leg, it's 0-0, with no away goal for United in Spain, and Sevilla failing to capitalise on their home advantage. Scott McTominay formed a sturdy midfield partnership with Nemanja Matic, who seemed to be more comfortable with the Scottish youngster's tendency to stay behind and defend while going forward, unlike Pogba.

But United managed to down Liverpool without the France global on Saturday and have a number of their key players in good form, including Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.

But all that good feeling generated inside Old Trafford at the weekend will mean nothing if the Reds fail to win tonight, according to manager Jose Mourinho. It was no different for him against Liverpool, although he was taken off only in injury time.

Sevilla are a different side from Liverpool.

The 24-year-old remains a doubt for the second leg of the last-16 clash against Sevilla at Old Trafford, which is tantalisingly poised after a 0-0 draw in Spain.

The Andalusians also have history to deal with - Sevilla have played six times in England and not won even once. It came in United's 3-2 Champions League win over AC Milan at the San Siro in 2010. The Ukrainian club have a 2-1 lead from the first leg.

At the same time, it has to be remembered that Sevilla were the team disappointed with the fact that the first leg ended goalless. The ball is now in the Mancunian court.
