Pogba misses training ahead of Sevilla tie


People were told to avoid Chapel Street, in Salford, as pictures shared on social media showed a large police presence in the area. Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, the central midfielder who is in the midst of a breakthrough campaign with Lazio, is reportedly the man to replace United's outgoing veterans in the middle of the park.

The 2017/18 Champions League last-16 second leg between Barcelona and Chelsea will be played at the Camp Nou, Barcelona, and kicks off at 20:45 CET on Wednesday 14 March, 2018.

David de Gea had a rather comfortable night against Liverpool and will love to have a similar outing against Sevilla.

Here we look at some of the best Opta numbers ahead of the two matches. "But when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen".

"I'm totally fine now, took a bit of time to get over".

With Newcastle United stealing three points of Manchester United recently, Jose Mourinho's side have also lost to Bristol City this season and dropped points to Stoke City. In a hectic season of all-round football, it would be essential to rest the big names in the first team.

"I do not feel like we have any advantage at this moment".

"We are still in the competition and we have the second leg coming up", he said. We know it's going to be tough. Sevilla have never reached the last eight of the Champions League and United will be hoping their additional experience works in their favour. "So not to win would be a disappointment".

Mourinho has begun the process of reversing that decline, even though United snuck into the Champions League through the back door, by winning the Europa League last season.

United club captain Carrick has enjoyed plenty of career highs during his time at Old Trafford, and was speaking as the club prepares to host a first Champions League knockout game in four years.

I think if they've got Alvaro Morata or Giroud up top then at least they'll be able to hold the ball up on a few occasions and give Hazard the chance of getting the ball in areas he can do damage.

Rashford, who faces fierce competition for a starting spot from the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard, said he did not feel the need to express his frustrations to manager Jose Mourinho. He responded by saying that, "I don't know, He's downstairs now and I will go and speak with him".
