Manchester United Given Big Fitness Boosts Ahead Of Sevilla Clash

Jose Mourinho has insisted that Tuesday night's Champions League clash with Sevilla significantly outweighs last weekend's win over Liverpool in terms of importance.

Sevilla won three Europa Leagues in a row before United won the old UEFA Cup last season, with both sides will be looking to go one better and progress in the more prestigious Champions League this year.

Pogba not starting Tuesday's clash against Sevilla has nothing to do with any perceived rivalry between him and his boss.it will only be risky to try change what looked like a balance United midfield against Liverpool, when the France worldwide missed the game through injury. I did my best, the players did their best. "We lost, that's football".

Find out what time Manchester United vs Sevilla gets underway where you are in the world.

According to Manchester Evening News, Pogba passed a late fitness test - he had received a knock in the last session of training before the Liverpool game.

It wouldn't be bad if a fit Paul Pogba start the game from the bench. "We know that our supporters are sad because of this result, so we need to go back to winning ways. After that it was clear that the first goal was going to change the shape of the game and they were the ones who scored it". There's been a spark in this team since the addition of Alexis Sanchez at the end of the January transfer window, and it's helped propel them to find a gear that's been absent since their excellent early-season run of form. Had David Moyes uttered such comments during his brief reign as United manager, he would have been lambasted, but even Moyes was able to take United into the Champions League quarterfinals. We were in control for the first 10 or 15 minutes, then after that Sevilla started to hide the ball. He has not always been this way, though.

The Champions League Round of 16 is almost done, but there's still a little more distance to go before the quarterfinals are drawn. There will be a confidence and swagger.
