Mourinho confirmed that the French worldwide is now back in action, but having missed Saturday's 2-1 win over Liverpool, he may need a little more time on the sidelines.

Marouane Fellaini is pushing for a recall if Pogba misses out after recovering from a knee injury but Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Daley Blind remain sidelined.

Since then, they have only featured in the Champions League five times, going out to Leicester City at this stage last season.

Some onlookers later questioned the wisdom of such an approach though, with Jose Mourinho having chose to take his chances back in Manchester despite the knowledge that a score draw would see United dumped out of the competition at the round of 16 stage.

Manchester United go into Tuesday's game as favourites to qualify after their goal-less draw in the first leg, and they have their goalkeeper to thank for holding that advantage. "So, of course, knockout becomes more important than league matches".

Manchester United vs Sevilla kicks off at 19:45pm on Tuesday 13 March. I know that it is very hard to go through.

He added: "I don't think we are one of the best teams in the competition".

"Before that they were scoring lots of goals". And with eight games to go, the Red Devils are already nine points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea.

"Tomorrow is more important than Saturday [against Liverpool] because Saturday was a match for points that we still have 24 more points to discuss, 24 more points to try to finish in the top four", Mourinho said, as per Manchester United's official website.

Three-time European champions, United have made the Champions League quarter-finals just once in the past seven years. "I'm really happy with Marcus".
