Manchester United vs Sevilla

Manchester United vs Sevilla

Charlie Nicholas is back with with his European predictions as Manchester United and Chelsea look to progress in the Champions League, while Arsenal have a healthy lead to defend against AC Milan in the Europa League.

The Red Devils failed to break Sevilla's resistance at Sanchez Pizjuan but also kept a clean sheet, and will believe that they can get the work done at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Had Alexis Sanchez made a better fist of things in the No 10 role, United might have had even more to show for their solid midfield and defensive foundations, in which the return of centre-half Eric Bailly helped to draw outstanding performances from Chris Smalling and Ashley Young.

Sevilla appear to have highlighted David de Gea as their main obstacle to reaching the Champions League quarter-finals ahead of the second leg against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

It's been one of the best spells in Manchester United's season in recent weeks. The buzz in the stadium will be an obvious plus for United on Tuesday night but apart from that, the Liverpool match provided a glimpse of how Manchester United can adjust without Paul Pogba.

The Frenchman had sustained an injury during warm-up before the match but United thrived without him. Juan Mata was not as productive and might not retain his place.

But Mourinho insists it may be a while until the 29-year-old hits top form at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford rose to the occasion in his first Premier League start since Boxing Day, scoring twice against Liverpool.

Sevilla are a different side from Liverpool.

Mourinho was content to allow Liverpool's middle three time, instead encircling the front three so Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino would have found playing in a telephone box more comfortable.

"I think we are not one of the best teams in the competition", he told a pre-match news conference. Jose Mourinho's men will enter this game against Sevilla looking for a place in the tournament's quarter finals after drawing 0-0 on the road in the first leg.

At the same time, it has to be remembered that Sevilla were the team disappointed with the fact that the first leg ended goalless.

Former Manchester City winger Jesus Navas is unlikely to make the squad as he recovers from injury. The ball is now in the Mancunian court.
