Manchester United go into the Champions League Round of 16 second leg with Sevilla needing goals, following a stalemate at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium three weeks ago.

As for Sevilla, they remain in the hunt for the Champions League places, but the defeat to Valencia now sees them sit 11 points behind.

"If he was coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose because he lost every game". Their form since the first leg is not encouraging.

"But the biggest problem at the moment to resolve has only one name and that name is Sevilla".

Alejandro Moreno and Steve Nicol applaud Manchester United's first-half display against Liverpool, but explain what went wrong in the second half of their 2-1 win.

He even has the potential bonus of not having Paul Pogba under his feet, with the Frenchman having played only a minimal part in training on Monday following Friday's collision with Scott McTominay which left him with a gash in his leg.

Will Pogba be fit?

But, Anthony Martial is set to return to the matchday squad after spending a week on the sidelines due to a thigh injury.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has labelled Frank de Boer the "worst manager in the history of the Premier League" after the Dutchman criticised his handling of young England striker Marcus Rashford.

That being said, United certainly did not miss Pogba against Jurgen Klopp's Reds. Marouane Fellaini should be the option off the bench once again.

Only Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Kane, Edinson Cavani and Roberto Firmino have scored more times in the Champions League than Sevilla attacker Wissam Ben Yedder (six goals) this season. But these players have let their team down when called upon for the job.

Sevilla will be without defender Sebastien Corchia, while Daniel Carrico is also a doubt.

Steven N'Zonzi and Ever Banega should line up in midfield, with the latter taking up a more creative role and the former being the defensive shield to the back-four.

Disappointment aside, though, Manchester United will care little should they do what is expected of them on Tuesday and ease past the Spanish side.

One to watch: One man who has been in form of late for the visitors is Pablo Sarabia. Luis Muriel's strength and power will also come in handy, apart from his abilities in front of goal.

But United will have fond memories of the last occasion we welcomed a Spanish side to Old Trafford - in May past year when the Reds booked a place in the UEFA Europa League final as a 1-1 draw completed a 2-1 aggregate win over Celta Vigo in the semi-finals of the competition.

The quarter-final line-up for the Champions League will be completed this week, with Tuesday's ties both finely balanced.
