Pogba could miss Manchester United's match against Sevilla

Man Utd Alexis Sanchez Paul Pogba Scott McTominay

Manchester United are uncertain about midfielder Paul Pogba's availability for Tuesday's Champions League last 16 clash with Sevilla, manager Jose Mourinho said after the Frenchman missed their 2-1 Premier League win over Liverpool at the weekend. Liverpool dominated possession but could only muster one goal, a spectacular miscued volley by United defender Eric Bailly into his own net in the 66th.

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.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford does not need verbal assurance from his manager about his importance to the team and said he is not anxious despite limited time on the pitch in the current Premier League campaign.

"I am a bit exhausted, we have a match on Tuesday".

He said: "He is an important guy for me".

"In terms of our first eleven we have arguably and equal to Man City, the difference in their attention to detail and tactics is far greater" he wrote on Twitter.

"We can split the halves".

Liverpool were denied the chance to go second in the Premier League as they were beaten 2-1.

"I think Liverpool in the second half were also playing a lot through the centre, allowed us to close more people in the inside, more people were close to each other, but Ashley was brilliant, yes".

"Our team was always in control. Even in set pieces, corners, unsafe situations. but we were in control so I think we deserved it".

"Probably you are not expecting my answer - but I'm happy with the decision".

The England global has been out of favour at the Theatre of Dreams but he rewarded Jose Mourinho's faith in him two quick-fire goals against the Reds. "It's hard to say after a game what exactly what it was but as a team we could have done better and defended the situations better".

"With Romelu Lukaku, he can win the headers sometimes - we did it afterwards [won the headers], but in these two situations we didn't".

Sanchez was signed in a swap deal that reportedly made him the Premier League's best-paid player but the Chile global has scored just one goal in eight United appearances, well below his career strike rate.

"Second half we had to continue chasing the game and then we scored a goal and should have been a penalty around Fellaini's situation with Sadio".
