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

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.

This might not be as big for the fans, but this is as big as Saturday in terms of it being huge for them to be in Champions League quarter-finals. The Portuguese had stated then that it is high time that Old Trafford experienced a big Champions League night.

Carrick, who was capped 34 times by England, underwent a procedure to correct an irregular heart rhythm, having initially felt unwell during the EFL Cup win over Burton Albion last September. The Chilean cut a forlorn figure in Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and was subbed off for Marcus Rashford in the 75th minute.

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

This is perfectly balanced. He didn't score but, for me, he's been fundamental.

Chelsea looked decent for some of the game against Crystal Palace when Olivier Giroud was holding the ball up, allowing Willian and Eden Hazard to be found in more advanced areas.

Mourinho added: "I remember his beginning when he was not always on the bench but I was taking him with the team as an extra player".

"He was getting minutes and getting experience and the best way to improve is to be on the pitch".

United's midfield three of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata in the first leg was designed with counter-attacking purposes in mind - a triumvirate capable of supplying and finishing off one killer pass to make all the difference - but it ultimately caused the visitors to stagnate and regress during the game. Their form since the first leg is not encouraging.

Bayern are the masters of seeing these ties through.

Well after the shambles of Arsenal's last home game in this competition, when they almost blew it against Ostersund, Arsene Wenger will play a strong line-up with a free weekend to follow.

"I don't know (if he can play), we don't know yet, but he trained a little bit after you left".

"I understood that I wouldn't be playing as many games, but I've been training hard and trying to keep fit". It was no different for him against Liverpool, although he was taken off only in injury time.
