Paul Pogba absent from training ahead of Seville tie

Paul Pogba absent from training ahead of Seville tie

Fellaini replaced goalscorer Marcus Rashford in the 70th minute. Read the main points below... Sometimes you are in the team, sometimes you are not in the team. But anything can happen, so let's see what happens tomorrow.

Phil Jones is also still unavailable and Mourinho says the centre-back won't be ready for action before the worldwide break so it looks like he'll miss the upcoming England friendlies.

Liverpool legend Steve Nicol insists that Jurgen Klopp is the second best manager in the Premier League, ahead of Jose Mourinho.

"I think it's his mentality. But the reality in this moment is that we have no advantage at all". People have been saying there hasn't been enough great Manchester United moments.

"But if you go to his numbers and how many games he played with me". They need only six more points from their remaining eight games to achieve their highest points total since Sir Alex Ferguson's final championship winning season in 2013.

Lionel Messi had a nice rest at the weekend to be ready for this one, so I don't give Chelsea much hope at all. He is starting to adapt to how Mourinho wants him to play.

"There's lots of things (I'm learning). But we will try".

The France global midfielder was a late withdrawal from the Red Devils folds to face Liverpool in Premier League competition on Saturday. Five games and five defeats and zero goals.

However, he does have a history of making mistakes in important games, including the loss to Tottenham where he was subbed off before half time, so it is not too surprising that this trend has emerged again. "I'm really happy with Marcus".

The bigger picture is shaping up quite nicely for Manchester United and Mike Holden thinks they should win comfortably against a defensively shaky Sevilla. Does he play every match from the start? No. No, of course not.

"In modern football you have to live day-by-day, week-by week and match-by-match and I can imagine that if we lose against Sevilla on Tuesday everyone will have forgotten what we did in the last couple of weeks". I am really pleased with everything.

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE QUALIFICATION CHANGES ARE GOOD FOR ENGLISH CLUBS "Because I work in England, I'm happy with that". It's better than playing that last play-off, which is always a risk, and be already qualified.

Manchester United's stunning win against Liverpool was the ideal example of Mourinho's pragmatism, coupled with his team's effectiveness in front of the goal.

In fact, United have beaten every team below them at least once this season - from Spurs in third to bottom-placed West Brom - and have a (slim) chance to beat leaders Manchester City, as well as Arsenal for a second time, before the season is out.
