Manchester United vs Sevilla

Mourinho names the 'most important match' of his reign

Sevilla send funny tweet to David de Gea ahead of Tuesday's European clash

Despite the numbing inevitability of domestic football in the modern world, the final two-and-a-half months of a season remain the most entertaining.

Rico said in a press conference: "Both for Sevilla and me personally it's an important and special match".

Blind, Rojo and Herrera have made 13 Champions League appearances between them this season, but Jones is yet to appear in the competition.

Manchester United go into Tuesday's game as favourites to qualify after their goal-less draw in the first leg, and they have their goalkeeper to thank for holding that advantage.

Hotel - the Lowry, where Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho stays had to be cordoned off for a bomb check.

"They've been performing very well in Europe for many years and they are very competitive".

United fans will be hoping that their side follow the example of Bayern Munich in 2015 when they drew 0-0 in the first leg of their last-16 clash with Shakhtar Donetsk.

Jose Mourinho briefed the media on Monday ahead of the game. And with eight games to go, the Red Devils are already nine points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea. 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.

Scott McTominay, Nemanja Matic and Juan Mata did a fine job in midfield against Liverpool but having Pogba back for the huge game this evening would definitely be a plus. It was the Portuguese manager's fourth major European title and he will be hungry to land the Champions League once more.

Mourinho himself has a mixed record. Limiting the opposition to as few chances as possible with the knowledge his own troops have plenty in attack often proves hugely effective.

He has also moved back into the viewfinder of Real Madrid, who came within minutes of signing him in 2015, but Mourinho has told the Spanish giants he will be going nowhere this summer.
