Mourinho: Anything is possible if United reach Champions League quarters

Mourinho: Anything is possible if United reach Champions League quarters

With Manchester United holding the aces on the defensive front, they only just tip the scales in their favour, which is why The Hard Tackle predicts a narrow 2-1 win for Jose Mourinho & co.

Manchester United go into the Champions League Round of 16 second leg with Sevilla needing goals, following a stalemate at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium three weeks ago.

Most clubs would be delighted to be sitting second in the Premier League, into the FA Cup quarter-finals and on the verge of a return to the last eight of the Champions League.

"Seville and Brighton are more important games than Liverpool", the United manager said.

"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".

However, Jose Mourinho would be well aware of the importance of this week's two fixtures.

Paul Pogba missed the Liverpool game after picking up an injury in training on Friday, and Mourinho is uncertain whether the France worldwide will be available against Sevilla.

With Anthony Martial available for this match, the manager has a good dilemma on his hands, as he chooses the players to complement his system, and play alongside Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, who will most definitely start the match.

Paul Pogba was not present at Manchester United training ahead of their crunch Champions League clash against Sevilla on Tuesday. "It says nothing. In modern football you have to live day by day, week by week and match by match".

He added: "I don't think we are one of the best teams in the competition".

According to Manchester Evening News, Pogba passed a late fitness test - he had received a knock in the last session of training before the Liverpool game. Now, I have only one name in my mind.

Mourinho was sent to the stands against Southampton in September after momentarily stepping foot on the pitch at St Mary's but praised referee Craig Pawson and fourth official Martin Atkinson for applying some common sense in relation to Klopp's behaviour.

Mourinho said: "Scott is playing very well". That's pretty much where I'm at.

"I still see myself as a winger because I've played there for so long".

The 24-year-old is now being denied the opportunity to play his way back into form, with another spell on the sidelines being taken in at the worst possible time.
