Ball in Manchester United's court as Old Trafford prepares for Sevilla

Ball in Manchester United's court as Old Trafford prepares for Sevilla

Marcus Rashford's first-half brace proved the difference as United increased their stranglehold on second spot in the Premier League and got a key week off to a flying start, with the FA Cup quarter-final against Brighton following Sevilla's visit.

And with the onus now on United to attack, to bring the fight, Mourinho simply can not neglect the explosive attacking influence offered out wide by Martial. There were, however, wins against both Malaga and Athletic Bilbao in between that sandiwch of defeats.

Manager Jose Mourinho had on Saturday after the Liverpool game replied that he did not know if Pogba will be available for the winner-takes-all tie.

"I can imagine that if we lose against Sevilla, everyone will have forgotten what we did in the last couple of weeks". He came in for a big game and did the business, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's back on the bench.

The 36-year-old club captain has featured sparingly for United this season, having been sidelined earlier in the campaign due to a heart scare.

HBO is re-teaming with key auspices behind its breakout Big Little Lies , including star Nicole Kidman and writer David E. Nicole Kidman ( Big Little Lies ) is set to star in the upcoming limited HBO series The Undoing , according to Deadline .

He may have downplayed the importance of United's win over Liverpool as compared to their upcoming fixtures but it certainly augurs well for them that they beat one of their biggest traditional rivals at Old Trafford just before a crucial Champions League clash.

And Red Devils boss Mourinho chose to single out Lukaku for special praise after Saturday's important 2-1 victory over Liverpool FC. 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.

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.

After the Red Devils secured a nervy 0-0 draw in Spain last month, Sevilla arrive on Tuesday evening for the return leg of an evenly-poised last-16 clash. 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.

He said: "We're close to achieving something significant after 60 years without reaching the quarter-finals".
