Sevilla boss Vincenzo Montella has suggested that one goal could be enough for his side to overcome Manchester United for a place in the Champions League quarter-finals.

"Mourinho said: "[Pogba] did [train] after you left.

Jose Mourinho briefed the media on Monday ahead of the game. "So I think his humble nature is what is making him a good player for us". There have been 30 previous occasions in which a first leg has been drawn 0-0 since the competition moved into the Champions League format in 1992, and the team playing away first has gone on to progress 21 times at a 70 per cent success rate.

Manchester United are now in second place in the Premier League table as they look to try and finish in the top four this season.

The France worldwide missed Saturday's 2-1 win over north-west rivals Liverpool due to a thigh injury, but Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News confirmed he was back in the squad ahead of Tuesday. It was the Portuguese manager's fourth major European title and he will be hungry to land the Champions League once more.

"But tomorrow and Saturday against Brighton are the matches where, in the end, you go to the next draw or you don't go to the next draw".

Mourinho hinted Marcus Rashford is in line for another start after his two-goal display against Liverpool.

The Andalusian supporters are looking forward to the clash with Man United, pushing aside the memory of three recent unsuccessful attempts to reach the Champions League quarterfinals. "We are going to try to show we are better but I don't feel we have any advantage", Mourinho added.
