Key Manchester United player set to miss Sevilla clash

Key Manchester United player set to miss Sevilla clash

Old Trafford has become a theatre of very thin dreams. However, Jose Mourinho is learning of the exacting demands of being Manchester United manager with incessant questions over not just results, but the manner in which they are obtained. United have got an fantastic record at Old Trafford, having only lost to Manchester City in 20 home games this season.

If Mourinho hoped the Frenchman's introduction would inspire United, he was desperately disappointed as it was Pogba's compatriot who proved the star turn.

"They played well in the first half without creating many unsafe situations".

With United reeling, Ben Yedder soon added his eighth goal of this season's Champions League, De Gea unable to claw out the striker's looping header.

Mourinho has reached the quarter-finals eight times in his managerial career but saw his United side humbled 2-1 on aggregate by Sevilla after substitute Wissam Ben Yedder's brace on Tuesday.

Lukaku's thunderous 84th-minute volley from a corner kick was merely consolation with the hosts in need of two goals to overturn the tie after Sevilla's pair of away strikes.

While Sevilla have lost two of their four league games since, with Valencia leaving Andalusia with a 2-0 victory on Saturday.

The bookmakers seem to agree with Mourinho, as United now have only the seventh most favorable odds of winning the tournament, out of the 12 teams still competing.

Manchester United, as Scholes suggested, were undone by their manager's perversity.

With Nemanja Matic alone in the defensive midfield role, Fellaini was all over the midfield in his usual aggressive fashion but provided little composure or balance. "Mourinho, look how hard it's to win when you don't want to", Spanish sports daily Marca said in a withering critique of the Portuguese's set-up. Last night he began on the right.

Rashford is young desperately-talented footballer who grew up in the streets of Northern Moor, an area of Manchester where the local Nisa appears like Harrod's.

"We didn't take it for granted, but it was just what we did for so, so many years". While Liverpool and Manchester City went through against overmatched opponents, Chelsea faces Barcelona on Wednesday to determine if the EPL finishes above or below.500 for the round.

That midfield setup also afforded Mourinho the rare opportunity of playing Marcus Rashford on the left side of Manchester United's attack, something the Portuguese has found hard to do since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez.
