Man United believe they can lift Champions League, says Young

Jose Mourinho hopeful over fitness of crucial duo

Herrera could prove to be the key to getting the best out of Pogba through his tenacity and workrate out of possession.

That price looks rather appealing for a striker with six goals from his last eight appearances, with 15/8 (2.88) anytime odds surely worth backing at the very least.

The two-man pivot in the middle of the park is likely to comprise of Frenchman Steven N'Zonzi and Guido Pizarro.

The Red Devils have faced something of a left-back headache in recent times, with none of the options available to them having nailed down the position. Among them is Manchester United's trip to Sevilla.

Wissam Ben Yedder should be on the bench and they still have Roque Mesa and Sandro who could help too, so it's quite a strong side.

The Champions League Round of Last 16 continues with Sevilla hosting Manchester United at the Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjua.

Mourinho chose to leave Pogba out of his starting line-up, despite the Frenchman being back in the squad after illness had kept him out of United's FA Cup win at Huddersfield Town. Let me be the first to say that this would be a clear, obvious and serious contravention of the rules of football, and that UEFA should launch an immediate investigation into this vile potential foul play. Eric Bailly and Chris Smalling should partner up in the heart of the defence.

Surprise inclusion Scott McTominay's 25-yard effort represented United's only shot in target in a first half that Sevilla would have gone ahead in but for De Gea. It remains unclear whether Paul Pogba would have recovered from illness in time for the game with Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones, Marouane Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic definitely out. He's been really good once this season - at Everton on New Year's Day - where he played in the more attacking role that he prefers.

In contrast, United counterpart Jose Mourinho has managed 139 games in the Champions League and won the trophy twice.

As they preview Sevilla versus Manchester United, they turn the whole thing into a Pogba article.

Sevilla, a five-time Europa League victor, is trying to advance past the round of 16 of the Champions League for the first time.

Pogba should be one of the most effective players in the Premier League and the way he has been used by United manager Jose Mourinho has also been questioned. However, the squad is yet to gel properly since the arrival of Alexis and that might once again hamper them against Sevilla, who have made the Sanchez Pizjuan a bit of a fortress this term, having lost just once at home.

The second leg is on March 13 in Manchester.
