Martial fit for Sevilla clash: Mourinho

Martial fit for Sevilla clash: Mourinho

With Sevilla and Brighton reaching the shores of Manchester for their respective matches in UEFA Champions League and FA Cup, the Portuguese knows this week might very well go onto define his entire season.

How Lovren, with 35 Croatian caps and 133 Premier League appearances behind him, is deemed aware enough to take his place in central defence for Liverpool for so long is one of life's great mysteries.

United host their LaLiga opponents on Tuesday with the last-16 tie all square at 0-0 following a drab first leg at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan.

United moved to 65 points and five points clear of fourth-placed Liverpool with the victory.

Sevilla, who were comfortably the better team in the first leg but who could not score, have been far less convincing domestically and have lost at home to Atletico Madrid and Valencia since playing United, though they have beaten struggling Malaga, plus Athletic Bilbao.

"It's a very special game tomorrow night for Seville".

Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera, and Daley Blind also sat out.

Former Manchester City winger Jesus Navas is unlikely to make the squad as he recovers from injury. The reverse fixture at Anfield had ended in a drab scoreless draw but the game at Old Trafford came to life in just the first quarter of an hour as Marcus Rashford did extremely well to get past Trent Alexander-Arnold to slot his strike past Loris Karius and put Jose Mourinho's men 1-0 ahead.

Sevilla have never won in six trips to England (D3 L3), although on their most recent visit they emerged with a 2-2 draw from their trip to Liverpool FC on Matchday one this season. And the feeling was that he was improving a lot in the last few weeks.

Mattis: US to not change containment strategy against Russian Federation
But I do not know what the intent was because we know that at a basic level Putin is neither an anti-Semite nor anti-Israel". Russia's Defense Ministry released video footage that showed a successful launch of the missile hitting its intended target.

Liverpool, Man United, Real Madrid target will stay at Leipzig
The interest from the Red Devils is, thus, a bit surprising, unless Mourinho is considering deploying Werner in the wide areas. While he also added: "Next year, definitely, I will stay in Leipzig".

Rebels shoot dead protester in Syria's Ghouta: monitor
About 85 percent of the dead were civilians killed by the forces of the Syrian government and its allies, the Observatory said . The group also did not say when the evacuations would begin or where the wounded would be taken.

Having scored the injury-time victor against Palace, Matic produced an even better performance in the two victories against top six sides, Chelsea and Liverpool, as United consolidated their position in second place.

"Personally, taking the confidence from this game into the next games is important".

"It was flawless, in relation to what the game gave us", said United manager Jose Mourinho, who won the tactical battle over rival manager Juergen Klopp.

We have to see what we did well to continue like this.

Manchester City and Liverpool took big leads into their respective home legs last midweek and failed to win but still coasted into the quarterfinals, but I think Bayern - who had 35 shots in the first leg - will continue their winning run in the competition, which now stands at five. "We didn't defend the counter-attack so good when they had their moments".

With 6 goals and an assist to his name, Muriel is the top scorer at Sevilla.

However valuable Romelu Lukaku's goals have been, it's fair to say the comparative success of this United side is built mostly on organization, resilience and the brilliance of keeper David De Gea.

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. However, the responsibility to stop him lies on United's back line.
