Manchester United vs Sevilla Preview

And Jose Mourinho's team will go into the game full of confidence off the back of Saturday's 2-1 win over arch-rivals Liverpool.

Despite a tiresome 0-0 draw with Sevilla in the first leg, Manchester United face off with Sevilla again in the second leg of the round of 16. Last season, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho did an admirable job convincing his club and everybody else that winning the Europa League was the point. He played against Chelsea two weeks ago, but was benched by Mourinho in the previous games due to poor form.

Asked whether the 24-year-old, who missed the win over Liverpool, could face Sevilla, the United manager said his participation was still up in the air.

Michael Carrick has confirmed he will retire at the end of the season.

United's next two outings will see them turn their attention to knockout football, with a midweek showdown with Sevilla in the Champions League set to be followed by an FA Cup quarter-final clash with Brighton.

Ander Herrera would happily concede the Premier League title to Manchester City in exchange for Champions League glory at Manchester United.

"I understood I'd be getting back fit that I wouldn't be playing as many games as probably I might have done, but that's something that I understood".

"They are a tough team and we still have to work hard to go through". I think we're not one of the best teams in the competition but when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen.

Vardy's stunning one-touch volley finish, off of a ideal 30-yard lob pass from Riyad Mahrez, was a reminder of the telepathic connection the two seemed to share during Leicester's once in a lifetime title run two seasons ago. United were not at their best offensively, but weathered the storm of a persistent Sevilla attack, who finished the game with 25 attempts on the United goal.

On Tuesday, however, his team will need to bring the fight to Sevilla, and you can only hope they have what it takes to dominate the midfield battle without their star man. You expect so much from him but it's going to take time for him to get used to the way United play.

In addition, Lingard will incur a suspension on his next Champions League yellow card and, given Rashford's brace against Liverpool, you'd think Mourinho would want to give the in-form boy wonder the nod.

Paul Pogba's Manchester United career has been "mixed" to say the least. "For me, the performance is globality and I'm really happy with Marcus".

The story of last week's Champions League ties were of experienced European powerhouses Juventus and Real Madrid respectively edging past Tottenham and Paris St Germain, both comparatively green at these stages of the tournament.
