Manchester United vs. Sevilla

Manchester United vs. Sevilla

Confidence will be high ahead of the game, but United will need to be far more adventurous than they were in the first leg. Marcus Rashford scored both goals against Liverpool on Saturday, and striker Romelu Lukaku also put in a superb performance with his power and pace causing problems.

Mourinho's presentation of the League Cup and the Europa League as pots worth winning earned him a reprieve last season when, aesthetically, United were thoroughly underwhelming. Yet Mourinho believes the games against Sevilla and Brighton are more important as they are sudden-death contests.

The Manchester Evening News claims Mourinho wants Rashford to model his game on Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, with the Egyptian - despite a quiet afternoon at Old Trafford - emerging as one of the players of the season after netting 32 times in all competitions.

"They didn't use some chances also but, in the end, the most important thing is three points".

"United had done the main part of the job in the first half and then finished it off in the second".

"We have to defend these situations better".

Liverpool did have chances, including numerous penalty shouts, but couldn't quite do enough to bring the score back level and move five points below United in the league as a result.

Manchester United now switch their attentions back towards Champions League affairs and their crunch clash against Sevilla in the last 16 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

The victory against Liverpool follows previous league wins against Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham, yet Mourinho shrugged off their importance. "Liverpool is Liverpool, Liverpool is a big match, Liverpool is a match against a valid competitor for the top four, but nothing is decided. He's very young. He needs games, he's so talented - you want to see this player every week".

He said the players, while in the dressing room, told Bailly that he had scored an fantastic goal. "But you've got to always work hard and he does".

"He was upset with a player and the same happened to me against Crystal Palace [last Monday] where I was upset with my player and therefore they [the officials] understood that too".

Challenges were flying in from the outset and composure was in short supply but Mourinho felt that mood to the game helped his side.

Klopp said he was pleased with his side's reaction after they were 2-0 behind after only 24 minutes. "But you can't cross the line and come on the pitch", West Ham manager David Moyes said.

"Before the two goals, after the two goals, I thought we were dominant".
