Manchester United vs Sevilla

Sevilla appear to have highlighted David de Gea as their main obstacle to reaching the Champions League quarter-finals ahead of the second leg against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

"I'm sure Sevilla feel the same way, and they already showed in the first leg that they have players and football to make things hard for us".

And the Portuguese admitted United have no advantage as a score draw would see Sevilla progress.

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.

Manchester United's biggest game of the season takes place this evening in a winner-takes-all Champions League clash with Sevilla. Speaking ahead of his side's Round of 16-second leg clash with Los Rojiblancos, the Special One feels that United are not among the best teams in the ongoing competition but anything can happen if they arrive in the last eight of the tournament.

The French midfielder sustained an injury in Friday's training session and was ruled out of the weekend victory at home to Liverpool, and now faces a race against time to be fit for the Spanish side. Pep Guardiola's side walloped the Ukrainians 7-0 in the second game at the Allianz Arena, the largest margin following a scoreless opening game in Champions League history. And with United having finally made some kind of statement in the league, it's time for something similar in Europe. "If he was coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose because he lost every game".

On Rashford he added: "He started, he had a good match and I'm not just speaking about scoring goals because, for me, the analysis of a performance is much more than analysing the number of goals or assists".
