Mourinho names the game that restored Man Utd's reputation

"I am expecting United to go through, mainly because this is the poorest Sevilla side in years".

Rivals Manchester City, Liverpool, Real Madrid and Juventus have already booked their places in the last eight and Mourinho added: "If we manage to win the tie and go to the last eight, I think it's a good achievement".

The Red Devils are favourites to progress from Tuesday evening's last-16 second-leg tie at Old Trafford after claiming a goalless draw in the reverse fixture three weeks ago.

United boss Mourinho is wary of the threat Sevilla pose, however, having witnessed the Spaniards - fifth in La Liga - hold Liverpool to 2-2 and 3-3 draws in the group stage of this season's competition.

Manager Jose Mourinho was unsure whether his midfielder would still make the matchday squad against Sevilla at his pre-match press conference on Monday: "He trained a little bit after you left".

"I don't think we're candidates to win the competition".

Mourinho has begun the process of reversing that decline, even though United snuck into the Champions League through the back door, by winning the Europa League last season.

Carrick has won 18 trophies in 12 years at United, including five Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008.

"I think when you are in the last 16, it looks really, really far".

"United has to be a team in the Champions League, so that victory was very important for us because we finished outside the top four".

Paul Pogba has overcome the injury that ruled him out of Manchester United's weekend win over Liverpool and is in the squad to face Sevilla on Tuesday.

"We don't know yet", said Mourinho.
