Sevilla clash bigger than Liverpool, says Mourinho

Gerrard Banter with Ferdinand

But as the Champions League enters the knockout stages, only 12 teams remain and the quarterfinal of any cup competition is the point at which teams start to believe they can go all the way.

Jose Mourinho briefed the media on Monday ahead of the game.

Paul Pogba missed the win over Liverpool on Saturday with a minor leg injury but he was able to take part in training yesterday so could be in contention this evening.

"I think when a team gets into the last eight the feeling is you are [competing] among the best but anything can happen".

The La Liga side go into Tuesday's game knowing a score draw will be enough to seal their passage past Jose Mourinho's men, but, as they found out in the first leg, finding a way to beat De Gea is easier said than done.

"I remember at the beginning when I was taking him as an extra player, in the meetings, in the dressing room at half-time eating every word, listening to everything", Mourinho told reporters. There have been 30 previous occasions in which a first leg has been drawn 0-0 since the competition moved into the Champions League format in 1992, and the team playing away first has gone on to progress 21 times at a 70 per cent success rate. Or is he just goading Liverpool? Sanchez remains one of the most experienced players in a relatively young United team with most number of Champions League appearances to his kitty. "If he was coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose because he lost every game".

Anthony Martial is also making the quad after being sidelined recently, however, Rashford's match-winning performance against Liverpool is likely to keep the Frenchman in the bench. "I'm really happy with Marcus".
