Manchester United Captain Michael Carrick Set to Retire This Summer

Rashford repays Mourinho's faith, raises question about Pogba's place

Rashford repays Mourinho's faith, raises question about Pogba's place

A runner-up finish is another target for United, with "a miracle" required to remove City from the Premier League summit.

Steven N'Zonzi of Sevilla in action with Marcus Rashford in the Round of 16 First Leg against Manchester United on 21 February 2018. "Sometimes you are in the team, sometimes you are not in the team".

"If we manage to win the tie and go to last eight, I think [it] is a good achievement but life goes on and hypothetically, we have a quarterfinal to play and we don't go thinking we don't have a chance".

The decision to not go looking for an away goal against a side that has lost heavily to the likes of Spartak Moscow, Eibar and Real Betis this season will come back to haunt Mourinho if United fail to progress.

0 - Sevilla have never won a Champions League game in England (D1 L3), with that one draw coming at Liverpool in this season's group stages.

"In these types of games, when the pressure is on you, you just be yourself and I think that's what seems to happen in these games and the team seems to react well, when maybe we don't react as well in other games", said the 20-year-old.

"Liverpool are a very good team, with an important stadium and with a big tradition, so it says Sevilla are a really good team".

The 2-1 win over Liverpool at the weekend saw Pogba miss out through injury, which he suffered last Friday in training and it has now been confirmed that he has missed the open training session on Monday morning.

"I do not feel like we have any advantage at this moment". We know it's going to be tough.

With Jesus Navas injured and Miguel Layun not registered for the Champions League, Vincenzo Montella with a bit of a selection headache.

In the side due to injury from Anthony Martial, which is how Rashford first broke into the United team, the Englishman was thoroughly impressive, netting twice and terrorising the Liverpool defence.

Mourinho's men are now locked at 0-0 in a two-legged European tie and Herrera is determined to help the Red Devils reach the last eight of that competition.

During his seven years at United, the Champions League is the only major trophy to elude Young, but he insisted that Mourinho's team can win the competition this season if they overcome Sevilla. The Portuguese had stated then that it is high time that Old Trafford experienced a big Champions League night. But that quickly passed and I got back fit. After Mourinho came out after the Liverpool game criticising the fans who booed McTominay for his "negative" play', it will be interesting to see how the youngster deals with the pressure of a Champions League knockout fixture.

I'd back Rashford at Sky Bet's 14/1 for another double but I don't know whether he's going to play.
