Michael Carrick confirms retirement and plan to join Jose Mourinho's coaching staff

It was the kind of game that United would have dropped points in earlier in the season.

United sealed a 2-1 win over their arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford in the Premier League clash on Saturday.

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.

Mourinho has been building up to the Round of 16 second leg clash right from the time he gave his first interview after the 0-0 draw in Seville.

The problem for Mourinho is not just United's tradition for winning while playing on the front foot under great European Cup-winning managers Matt Busby and Alex Ferguson, but that United are no longer even the best team in Manchester.

The Frenchman had sustained an injury during warm-up before the match but United thrived without him.

McTominay and Matic plugged the gaps and, along with Ashley Young hounding Mohamed Salah, blunted Liverpool's lethal forward line.

The midfielder confirmed it will be his last season at Old Trafford and revealed the logical transition to Jose Mourinho's coaching staff in the off-season. The Chilean cut a forlorn figure in Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan and was subbed off for Marcus Rashford in the 75th minute.

Sevilla are a different side from Liverpool. That means United must win.

That team news will be out at 18:45GMT, so stick with us until then, and beyond, for build-up and then live updates from Old Trafford as Mourinho looks to guide United into the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in three years.
