Manchester United pair Nemanja Matic and Jose Mourinho sought to play down the 2-1 win over Liverpool last Saturday and highlight the importance of tomorrow morning's (Singapore time) clash with Sevilla.

As for Sevilla, they remain in the hunt for the Champions League places, but the defeat to Valencia now sees them sit 11 points behind.

"I think we are not one of the best teams in the competition", he told a pre-match news conference.

"But we are only concerned at the minute about getting past Sevilla because it is not easy". However, Mourinho stated Pogba did actually train once journalists had left and left open the possibility that the Frenchman could be fit enough to return.

Mourinho insisted the game against Sevilla was "more important" than the one just gone against Liverpool.

With Jesus Navas injured and Miguel Layun not registered for the Champions League, Vincenzo Montella with a bit of a selection headache.

Here's what likely awaits United at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. It was the kind of game that United would have dropped points in earlier in the season.

Adam's time in Part 1 puts him squarely in the medal hunt, with Part 2 - Slalom - coming up from 7pm NZT tonight on DUKE. This is New Zealand's 30th winter Paralympic medal and New Zealand's 220th Paralympic medal overall, summer and winter.

"I say Liverpool because they are an example of a very good team".

It is still not certain how much the Lancaster-born 21-year-old, who recently opted to play for Scotland internationally, will live up to his potential. Mourinho revealed that he does not know the extent of Paul Pogba's injury which might see the French midfielder miss this game as well while Anthony Martial, who also missed the game against Liverpool, will undergo a late fitness test before the game.

Attack: Marcus Rashford returned to the starting eleven with a bang as he scored both goals against Liverpool at the weekend and I'd be shocked if he didn't keep his place after such an impressive performance.

"We are still in the competition and we have the second leg coming up", he said.

"You don't give up but second position is there and confirms you will be in the Champions League".

Manchester United do not have a strong record in two-legged ties against Spanish clubs, having won just six of their 13 ties (L7). On Tuesday, the Sevilla boss will only be without three first-team players in the worst case scenarios.
