Jose Mourinho has suggested Manchester United are far from the strongest side left in this season's Champions League - but insists: "Anything is possible".

Pogba did not appear in much discomfort at Old Trafford after the Premier League clash, but he looks in danger of missing the Champions League second leg against Sevilla after missing training on Monday. Manchester United know any victory would suffice to ensure progression and barring a minor disaster, their name should be in the hat for the quarterfinal draw.

Mourinho confirmed Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Phil Jones are all injured and will play no part against Sevilla.

The Frenchman missed Saturday's 2-1 win against Liverpool after sustaining a kick in the "very last minute" of Friday's training session.

The first leg tie between the two teams finished in a goalless stalemate in Spain, and United will be confident that home advantage on Tuesday night will work in their favour.

Some onlookers later questioned the wisdom of such an approach though, with Jose Mourinho having chose to take his chances back in Manchester despite the knowledge that a score draw would see United dumped out of the competition at the round of 16 stage. Sanchez remains one of the most experienced players in a relatively young United team with most number of Champions League appearances to his kitty.

"Do I have the ideal team for Champions League success?" I don't know if he will be fit for tomorrow yet.' Mourinho told the media during a press conference. Mourinho retaliated against Frank de Boer for the criticism made by the Dutchman, and absolutely destroyed the Dutchman.
