Mourinho: Sevilla clash bigger than Liverpool

Mourinho: Sevilla clash bigger than Liverpool

The first leg tie between the two teams finished in a goalless stalemate in Spain, and United will be confident that home advantage on Tuesday night will work in their favour.

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.

They've also attempted more shots per 90 minutes (13.8) and created more chances (10) in the league than they have in Europe (13.57/9.29). The Old Trafford supporters, unhappy with the failure to take the game to Sevilla, began to chant for greater attacking urgency even before the half-time whistle. Substitute Wissam Ben Yedder scored twice after coming on in the second half, with Romelu Lukaku pulling a goal back for United.

Sevilla have never reached the Champions League quarter-finals but did make the European Cup quarter-finals in 1958. "I don't have a preferred opponent: they are all strong teams, but we will play to win against anyone".

Just three minutes after the restart Sevilla broke and Correa was inexplicably allowed to run free into the box.

Jose Mourinho has said Paul Pogba could feature against Sevilla on Tuesday evening, despite missing Monday's training session through injury. But the Frenchman's injury before the game turned out to be a blessing in disguise for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.

Bolton was declared the Player of the match , and after the match she said how the match-winning knock nearly knocked her out. Leggie Amanda-Jade Wellington picked up three wickets and Ashleigh Gardner removed Smriti Mandhana (12).

Neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona sidelined their attacking players to stifle N'Zonzi when facing Sevilla but Fellaini's selection was purely a result of the presence of the former Blackburn and Stoke player.

Unsurprisingly Mourinho did not share the critics' view that United had been poor.

In 11 games under Montella, Sevilla have picked up only 16 points to fall 11 points back of Valencia for the final Champions League spot.

"Do I have the ideal team for Champions League success?"

The Argentine started the move that led to Ben Yedder's first goal, the score that gave Sevilla a vital away goal and all but put the team into the quarterfinals. The Spanish outfit will fight to get a goal.
