Man. United v Sevilla: line-ups, Fantasy tips, form guide
Reporter’s view: After four years, this is United’s first UEFA Champions League knockout game here since 1 April 2014 and they go into it in good heart after comeback wins against Chelsea and Crystal Palace – not to mention Saturday’s victory over rivals Liverpool. The historical omens are good too, because they’ve won 11 of 15 UEFA competition ties in which they recorded a first-leg away draw and they’re facing opponents who’ve never won in England in six previous attempts.

José Mourinho, Man. United manager
Tomorrow’s a very difficult match. We’re playing against a team that didn’t lose against Liverpool home and away, scored goals against Liverpool, drew against Liverpool – and they [Liverpool] are a very good team, [at] an important stadium with big tradition, so it says Sevilla are a really good team. I don’t know [if Paul Pogba will be fit]. We don’t know yet. He trained a little bit after you left [following the 15 minutes open to the media].
Vincenzo Montella, Sevilla coach
We know this is a difficult venue and they are a team with a lot of clout. We know we have to give everything and hope the key moments go our way. We have to play the situations. There will be moments we have to defend, and moments where we have to attack – and moments to slow the game down and moments to speed it up.
