Sevilla the most important game of the season: Matic

Sevilla the most important game of the season: Matic

However, with City seemingly just a few weeks away from sealing the title and having already booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals, the pressure is on United to join them in Friday's draw when they host Sevilla on Tuesday.

Pablo Sarabia and Joaquin Correa will be the key men in the wide areas, providing a burst of pace to unsettle the Manchester United full-backs.

At the back of his mind, Vincenzo Montella will be holding onto the fact that Manchester United have struggled against underdogs this season.

"But the biggest problem at the moment to resolve has only one name and that name is Sevilla". This was a Sevilla side who, not to do them a disservice, have conceded five goals on no less than four occasions this season, including to sides like Real Betis and Eibar.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic took part in training before the Sevilla game, although it remains to be seen whether the veteran Swedish striker is in any condition for his first competitive action since Boxing Day. Luis Muriel's strength and power will also come in handy, apart from his abilities in front of goal.

Both Giroud and the out-of-form Alvaro Morata were left out of Chelsea's line-up for the 1-1 draw against Barca in the last 16 first leg as Conte preferred to use Eden Hazard as a "false nine".

Sevilla have never won in six trips to England (D3 L3).

Liverpool needed luck to overcome Manchester United after suffering those initial shocks and they were in short supply of that precious commodity today. The French midfielder has been a revelation for the Andalucian side, screening the back-four remarkably.

"We have to be at our best level and be able to compete".

He also praised the recent contributions of Scott McTominay, included in the Scotland squad for the first time, and Marcus Rashford: "I have to be honest and give the credit to the people of the Academy that was responsible for [Rashford's] formation". United enter the game on the back of a morale-boosting run of three consecutive wins in the Premier League. McTominay is likely to play against Sevilla in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 matchup on Tuesday.

The United boss, Jose Mourinho has finally bought the winning mentality to the club and the bar has been raised at the Theater of Dreams.
