"He's always the first out on the training pitch", Mourinho told a news conference on Monday. 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.

Anthony Martial is available after missing the last two games with a thigh injury but Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind have been ruled out.

Mourinho insisted the game against Sevilla was "more important" than the one just gone against Liverpool.

How have we been doing?

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

Young, 32, is just six games away from equalling his highest number of appearances in a season for United, having made 27 so far this term in comparison to the 33 he racked up during his first campaign at Old Trafford in 2011-12.

Pogba was believed to have picked up a knock before the game last weekend, and is now a doubt for the Round of 16 second leg clash against Sevilla, as he was not pictured alongside his teammates training for the game at United's training ground, Carrington. They now sit fifth in La Liga, but their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next season were dealt a blow at the weekend after a disappointing 2-0 defeat at home to fourth-placed Valencia.

Oil down on continued concerns over US output
Additionally, new government data showed speculators cut bets on oil, suggesting more selling could be seen over the near-term. Despite the lower rig count, an early indicator of future output, activity remains much higher than a year ago.

He also helped United win the UEFA Champions League (2008), FIFA Club World Cup (2008) and the UEFA Europa League (2017). Their form since the first leg is not encouraging.

Pablo Sarabia and Joaquin Correa will be the key men in the wide areas, providing a burst of pace to unsettle the Manchester United full-backs.

"But the biggest problem at the moment to resolve has only one name and that name is Sevilla".

The Portuguese coach has won the Champions League twice with Porto and Inter Milan but suggested his United side are not ready to emulate those teams.

How are Sevilla doing? .

A tie that is hanging in the balance, all three results will be possible when Manchester United host Sevilla. Sevilla fell to a demoralizing 2-0 defeat to Valencia at home and will look to bounce back.

McTominay will now also be put through his paces at global level.

What's our record like against Spanish opposition? "It's something you have to accept", Carrick said.

The 20-year-old striker ended a goal drought with two goals in the 200th competitive fixture between Manchester United and Liverpool on Saturday afternoon, rising to the occasion in his first Premier League start for the Reds since Boxing Day.
