Big Match Focus: Manchester United v Sevilla

Two goals from Marcus Rashford helped United to a 2-1 win over Klopp's side at Old Trafford - but the Liverpool manager found himself in trouble after racing 20 metres down the touchline to remonstrate with his player Dejan Lovren.

While Liverpool enjoyed the bulk of possession, especially in the second half, United's back four showed other timeless qualities providing solid, organised defence and gave little space to their opponents.

It is a big game, the most important of the season for United in a month where they are coming thick and fast.

Manchester United's most decorated player, Ryan Giggs, was sarcastically cheered off by supporters during the 2003 League Cup semi-final against Blackburn and his career was peppered with periods of mediocrity.

Manchester United must match the intensity they played with against Liverpool if they want to beat Sevilla.

De Boer, who lasted only 77 days as Crystal Palace manager after losing his first four league games in charge with no goals scored, said in an interview on BT Sport that it was "a pity" Mourinho was Rashford's manager because he was not getting enough chances.

Keep an eye on Jesse Lingard - one more booking and he will be suspended for the next Champions League match. In the first game of the round Roma followed up their 4-2 win over Napoli to edge Torino 3-0, and a 2-2 draw for Lazio, secured late with a goal of the season contender from Ciro Immobile, on Sunday meant that the Giallorossi are now three-point clear of their derby rivals in third.

The Daily Mirror claims that Mourinho wants a new centre-back, a left-back and a holding midfielder.

"We have to see what we did well to continue like this".

Nor was the 0-0 in Sevilla three weeks ago; Mourinho doesn't feel that he has the team to attack top sides away from home and it took Ferguson 12 years before he realised a dream of going to Barcelona and having the confidence in his side to take the game to one of the best teams in the world. This has, in all likelihood, helped Rashford to understand that the margin of error is very slim which was on display in his performance against Liverpool.

The two midfielders Angel Gomes and Ethan Hamilton were also not included in the training session.

United are in a good run of form this season, and they seem to be getting hotter at the ideal time. It is Sevilla. I know it is very hard to go through. "So I think his humble nature is what is making him a good player for us".

Rashford's double - on his first Premier League start since Boxing Day - proved decisive, as Liverpool couldn't add to the Bailly own goal as they slipped to a first defeat in eight games in all competitions.

Those games will be Southgate's last chance to experiment before naming his 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation.
