Pogba doubtful for Sevilla clash

"Sevilla and Brighton are more important games than Liverpool", said Mourinho, via the Mirror. It is Sevilla. I know it is very hard to go through.

That team news will be out at 18:45GMT, so stick with us until then, and beyond, for build-up and then live updates from Old Trafford as Mourinho looks to guide United into the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in three years. There is a school of thought that Sanchez's teething problems have come in part due to him wanting to occupy the same space which Pogba favours, but that can not be claimed to be an issue if the midfielder is absent on Tuesday.

The Red Devils will be without defenders Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind, and midfielder Ander Herrera. That was the first official meeting between both clubs, and it will also be the first official match for the Andalucia side at Old Trafford. The result now means that Mourinho's side have beaten everyone inside the top six this season apart from rivals Manchester City, in what has been a good run for the Old Trafford outfit.

Had Alexis Sanchez made a better fist of things in the No 10 role, United might have had even more to show for their solid midfield and defensive foundations, in which the return of centre-half Eric Bailly helped to draw outstanding performances from Chris Smalling and Ashley Young. Out of the title race, this is United's biggest game of the season so far and it's a must-win. It is a very important game for us. Keep your best stuff for the @FIFAWorldCup this time.

United have won all three of their matches since drawing in Seville, including coming from 2-0 down to beat Crystal Palace 3-2 and Saturday's 2-1 triumph over in-form Liverpool.

Mizzou back in the dance, faces Florida State in NCAA first round
Eighth-seeded Missouri (20-12) opposes ninth-seeded Florida State (20-11) in West Regional action on Friday in Nashville, Tenn. Martin didn't clarify one way or the other whether Barnett would return if Missouri made the second round.

Manchester United have been in pretty good form at the moment. The start of the month saw the Reds come from behind to defeat defending Premier League champions Chelsea at home in a 2-1 win.

"We have put a lot of planning and preparation into this game with different strategies and ideas on how we can hurt them".

Manchester United go into Tuesday's game as favourites to qualify after their goal-less draw in the first leg, and they have their goalkeeper to thank for holding that advantage.

Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Anthony Martial has recovered in time to feature in Manchester United's last 16 Champions League clash with Sevilla.
