Paul Pogba Named in Manchester United's Champions League Squad to Face Sevilla

The first leg ended in a 0-0 draw in Spain, leaving the tie delicately poised this evening.

Manchester City and Liverpool both secured big away wins to put their respective ties to bed with 90 minutes still to play, yet United approached a trip to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan with a more safety-first style and secured just a 0-0 draw. I know it is very hard to go through.

Sevilla have been a shadow of the team that won three successive Europa League titles between 2013 and 2016, with the Spanish side now sitting fifth in the La Liga table, a massive 11 points adrift of the top-four.

Joaquin Correa flashed a near-post header narrowly over the crossbar from Banega's left-wing corner, with Luis Muriel then wasteful after Eric Bailly's sloppy pass played Sevilla in.

Lukaku sparked a late fightback by turning in a Marcus Rashford corner but United could not match Sevilla's clinical edge in front of goal. "We're bringing everything we've got".

"I'm pleased the players aren't hiding their sadness, but we have no time for drama".

He knows the fans don't hate him, they're just angry with him, but it was the first time I've heard him use the word "hate" and I just think he's realising he needs to do something to ease the anger.

"But that quickly passed and I got back fit".

"But anything can happen, so let's see what happens tomorrow".

To reach those lofty heights, however, his team will likely have to perform better than they did three weeks ago in Seville.

Despite the evidence suggesting United lose more often with Pogba starting than they do when he's out of the team, Mourinho will undoubtedly want the club's record signing at his disposal against Sevilla.

"[Pogba] did [train] after you left."

The Spaniards progressed by the same score on aggregate after a goalless first-leg draw.

"Tomorrow's a very hard match".

"It's important to understand that we must be prepared to suffer, if we play with Hazard as number nine, or if we play with Giroud or Morata as number nine and Hazard as number 10", Conte told Chelsea TV.
