Karius'Liverpool at fault for United loss

"Of my other boys, [Romelu] Lukaku is in the first season in the Champions League, [Marcus] Rashford, [Anthony] Martial, [Jesse] Lingard, just a few matches".

Manchester United host Sevilla at Old Trafford for the return leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

Rob is ESPN FC's Manchester United correspondent. Paul Pogba is doubtful, and all signs indicate he will be a game-time decision. Scott McTominay formed a sturdy midfield partnership with Nemanja Matic, who seemed to be more comfortable with the Scottish youngster's tendency to stay behind and defend while going forward, unlike Pogba.

Rashford's second, from a near identical position in the box, was slightly fortuitous as his drive flicked in off Alexander-Arnold after Juan Mata had been denied, but it was to prove enough despite Bailly's second half own-goal.

Marcus Rashford rose to the occasion in his first Premier League start since Boxing Day, scoring twice against Liverpool.

If Saturday again raised questions about this Liverpool side's ability, like Spurs, to get over the line, it is not a failing that can be levelled at Mourinho.

Evidence of such abuse has been slow to emerge, but officials from two western governments said they deemed the reports credible. Saudi Arabia themselves have qualified for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation - while Iraq missed out.

Mourinho was content to allow Liverpool's middle three time, instead encircling the front three so Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino would have found playing in a telephone box more comfortable. They rarely allowed United any meaningful time on the ball during the first leg and created a number of chances.

"If I finished the session one minute before it wouldn't have happened".

I do think at close to even money it is a great price on Arsenal to win given the quality of players who should play and it is another opportunity to build momentum, and get the fans that are there on side.

The La Liga side have failed in their three previous attempts to progress from the competition's last-16, including falling at this stage against Leicester last season. Jose Mourinho's men will enter this game against Sevilla looking for a place in the tournament's quarter finals after drawing 0-0 on the road in the first leg.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Portuguese manager wants to bring a central defender, a left back and a holding midfielder in the next window. I say Liverpool to show that Sevilla is a really good team and the result of the first leg is one that leaves everything open.
