Pogba misses United training ahead of Sevilla clash

  • Jamie Redknapp would prefer to play for a Mourinho team based on his record of winning titles

Michael Carrick has confirmed this will be his last season as a player at Manchester United. "Martial is fit yes".

He has not played since Dec 26.

In Saturday's 2-1 win over arch-rivals Liverpool, Manchester United's Marcus Rashford eclipsed Sanchez's form. Asked if United have the potential to go all the way this season, Mourinho was cautious. Mourinho hopes for a repeat on Tuesday, for Old Trafford to be the "hell" he said it was when he brought his Porto team there in 2004. I try to give the best to the kid. "I don't know. We don't know yet, but he trained a little bit after you left".

Paul Pogba was forced to sit out Manchester United training on Monday, casting doubt over his involvement in their Champions League clash with Sevilla.

Making Sanchez's start at Manchester United worse is the form of other players in the league.

Some onlookers later questioned the wisdom of such an approach though, with Jose Mourinho having made a decision to take his chances back in Manchester despite the knowledge that a score draw would see United dumped out of the competition at the round of 16 stage.




Mourinho-managed teams, too, are hard to beat when they are ahead - a fact highlighted by a prolific Liverpool side's struggles to break down United after the Portuguese set his side up defensively in the second period following Marcus Rashford's two-goal salvo in the first 24 minutes. Should Manchester United make it to the final, that's a scenario that could outdo the Premier League champions.

But away from the field Rashford does not feel the need to express any frustration to Mourinho, thanks to maturity that belies his age. But the Portuguese disputes the idea that Rashford is being held back under his charge. Vincenzo Montella's men have won two and lost as many games in the last three weeks - a sequence of results that has left them lagging well behind in the race to finish inside the top four.

"I would say he was in the top five with more matches for two seasons", Mourinho said. Nemanja Matic has been ever-present for the Red Devils this season and should start at the heart of the midfield and could be partnered with Scott McTominay, who is fast turning into an important player for United. "You want to see this player every week". We will carry on of course, but in the moment it's a big disappointment.

United are more comfortable this term with eight league games to play and can switch attention to two big cup games at Old Trafford this week against Sevilla on Tuesday and Brighton & Hove Albion four days later. "As if any of that rhetoric will have any bearing on the harsh reality facing Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard for that matter", Crooks wrote in his Team of the Week column for BBC Sport.

United, who were playing their first Champions League knockout game in four years, have won 15 of their 18 home games so far this season.
