Mourinho Talks Up United's UCL Chances, Confirms Martial Return, Unsure Of Pogba

Mourinho Talks Up United's UCL Chances, Confirms Martial Return, Unsure Of Pogba

In the Champions League, the team has a slight edge ahead of this game since the first leg ended with a scoreless draw.

Speaking at a news conference on Saturday after the game, Mourinho said: "In every press conference I come to, I say the same about Lukaku". Sevilla fell to a demoralizing 2-0 defeat to Valencia at home and will look to bounce back. They register one win on the road, but it was against a lowly Malaga side that can't get a win to save their lives at the moment. "In modern football, you have to live day-by-day, week-by week and match-by-match". 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. "Alexis played Champions League for a few years with different clubs, at least one club that is feeling the responsibility to win it when he was at Barcelona".

United are in a good run of form this season, and they seem to be getting hotter at the ideal time. We had also the in the first half (a chance) to finish the game and make it 3-0 but we didn't use our chance.

Manchester United are coming off a deserved 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Sen. Jeff Flake introduces legislation to nullify Trump's plan to raise tariffs
The competing economic instincts that are dividing Trump from the rest of his Republican Party were on full display Thursday. Dan Simmons, president of United Steelworkers Local 1899 in Granite City, Ill., said they "will allow us to compete".

The problem for Mourinho is not just United's tradition for winning while playing on the front foot under great European Cup-winning managers Matt Busby and Alex Ferguson, but that United are no longer even the best team in Manchester. Away in London a week later, at Crystal Palace, a typically frustrating lethargic and complacent performance at Selhurst Park seemed to be set to put United into third.

But, as United prepare to face Sevilla in the second leg of their Champions League round-of-16 clash on Tuesday having drawn 0-0 in Spain, they need to start getting more out of the former Arsenal and Barcelona attacker.

As things stand after a tiresome affair in the first leg, it's 0-0, with no away goal for United in Spain, and Sevilla failing to capitalise on their home advantage. They rarely allowed United any meaningful time on the ball during the first leg and created a number of chances. Sevilla will go through if it ends in a score draw, and another 0-0 will see the tie go to extra time. Kick-off is at 19:45GMT, but we'll have build up for you before then before team news is out an hour before we get underway at Old Trafford.
