Charlie Nicholas states his prediction for Man United v Sevilla

"He trained after [the media] left", Mourinho said.

He has not played since Dec 26.

"I think we're ready for United", Lenglet said in an interview with COPE Sevilla.

Sevilla defender Clement Lenglet, meanwhile, believes his side are ready for the Red Devils and warned that United will see the best of the La Liga side if they score first.

The midfielder, who moved over to Old Trafford from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006, will hang up his cleats at the end of 2017-18, and will likely join manager Jose Mourinho's coaching staff next season.

The 36-year-old has made only three appearances since experiencing an irregular heart rhythm in September. As a footballer, you always want to play and I wanted to be involved in more games this season. The Reds have largely struggled against teams from Spain in Europe, winning just 13 of our previous 51 games.

"When you are in the last 16 it looks really, really far [away] but when the team gets in the last eight you start smelling semi-finals".

However much an initial difficulty might have been expected, Mourinho has previously admitted that part of the reason they signed Sanchez was his potential to make a real difference in Europe. It's kind of been sorted out. We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing to totally confirm as yet.

The former England global won five Premier League titles, the UEFA Champions League and Europa League, the FA Cup and the EFL Cup on three occasions during his time at Old Trafford.

Manchester United came into this fixture the bookmakers underdogs for the first time since the 1980s but, in the end, Jose Mourinho's tactics worked out for the best as his side eked out a 2-0 win.

However, Jose Mourinho is learning of the exacting demands of being Manchester United manager with incessant questions over not just results, but the manner in which they are obtained.

Rashford, 20, has been on the bench 15 times in the league this season but scored twice to secure a 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday having been named in the starting line-up. While this United side may not have accrued the Champions League nous of the Sir Alex Ferguson sides, they still have players such as Juan Mata and Antonio Valencia, who have played in the competition's finals.

"I say Liverpool because they are an example of a very good team".

Antony Martial has suffered as well but it is their biggest young talent, Marcus Rashford, who has suffered the most. But the Portuguese disputes the idea that Rashford is being held back under his charge.

Alejandro Moreno and Steve Nicol applaud Manchester United's first-half display against Liverpool, but explain what went wrong in the second half of their 2-1 win.

"I don't know", Mourinho told British media when asked about Pogba's availability for the second leg of their last 16 match.

Alternatively, Mourinho can buy a few experienced players so as to give players such as Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw or Victor Lindelof a source of learning.
