Manchester United have been struggling of late, with the recent defeats against Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United putting any distant hopes they had of winning the Premier League title to bed. Now Jose Mourinho will be turning his attention to the Champions League and their tie with Sevilla on Wednesday night.
Sevilla have performed well in Europe in recent seasons with Europa League victories in both 2015 and 2016, whilst Manchester United won the trophy last season to qualify for this season’s Champions League. In the group stage, Sevilla finished as runners up to Liverpool, with Manchester United topping their group.
Mourinho will be confident of progressing to the next round against a fairly average Sevilla side, but he will need to see an improvement from the likes of Paul Pogba if they are to win the game on Wednesday. The mercurial French midfielder has turned in some substandard performances in recent weeks, being withdrawn on his last two starts and after missing the FA Cup win over Huddersfield Town through illness, there will be plenty of people interested to see how he gets on against Sevilla.
