Sevilla manager Montella confident of progressing in Champions League

Mourinho confirmed Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Phil Jones are all injured and will play no part against Sevilla.

Mourinho's men earned a goalless draw in Spain last month and tonight's return tie may still come too soon for the Pogba to return to action after the he suffered a gashed leg in training.

And the Portuguese admitted United have no advantage as a score draw would see Sevilla progress. Sanchez remains one of the most experienced players in a relatively young United team with most number of Champions League appearances to his kitty. "I don't know. We don't know yet, but he trained a little bit after you left".

Manchester United is now second in the EPL standings, while Sevilla holds the fifth position in the La Liga table.

'I think he will stay, ' Mourinho told La Sexta.

Bayern closer to another title
A well-angled strike from Serge Gnabry made it 2-0 on 77 minutes, before a calamitous Joshua Guilavogui own-goal secured victory. With eight games left, Bayern are a huge 20 points clear of second-placed Schalke, who won 1-0 at Mainz on Friday.

Delivering two major trophies last season and a return to the Champions League represented a foundation base upon which to build, and while they are not at Europe's elite level yet there are signs that something big is building.

Few managers have the know-how of Mourinho in European competition - last season's Europa League may not have been its strongest version yet Manchester United emerged unbeaten from their nine knockout matches. Mourinho retaliated against Frank de Boer for the criticism made by the Dutchman, and absolutely destroyed the Dutchman.

"He was saying that it's not good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me because the most important thing for me is to win".

De Boer - who lasted 77 days at Palace after losing four consecutive league games without his side scoring a goal - suggested after Rashford started his first game of 2018 against Liverpool, scoring twice, that he would be better off playing under another manager.
