Martial fit for Sevilla clash: Mourinho

Romelu Lukaku in conversation with Jose Mourinho

JOSE MOURINHO, admitting that Manchester United are not one of the best teams in Europe but believes he is experienced enough to guide them to glory. Knowing they conquered just two points on the road during the Champions League's group stage, we might see a cautious Sevilla here.

"I think we're ready for United", Lenglet said in an interview with COPE Sevilla.

With all-too-predictable regularity, Manchester United have yet to face a really elite opponent in the tournament this time around and so the real test could be about to come in the quarterfinals should they make it.

Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford also were far more comfortable in their roles while United caught Liverpool on the counter repeatedly in the early minutes, leading to Rashford scoring twice.

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.

This is perfectly balanced.

7 - Jose Mourinho has only lost seven of his previous 69 Champions League home games as manager (W48 D14), though five of those defeats have been against Spanish opposition.

"I've tried all sorts of different things to bring the best out of me over the years and I can say that I've given my best, so I can look back with no regrets".

"We have put a lot of planning and preparation into this game with different strategies and ideas on how we can hurt them".

"In these types of games, when the pressure is on you, you just be yourself and I think that's what seems to happen in these games and the team seems to react well, when maybe we don't react as well in other games", said the 20-year-old.

Barcelona have improved defensively but you can still get at them due to their attacking intent. But that quickly passed and I got back fit. That's pretty much where I am at.

Where can I watch Barcelona vs Chelsea? They'll sit in and pick Besiktas off at will, with Robert Lewandowski and Thomas Muller sensing the right moments to strike.

The Italian side's home advantage gives them a significant edge, but the fact Shakhtar already have a lead means Roma will need a superb display if they are to reach the last eight.

"In training is where I'm doing most of my learning".

However, I also have a feeling that there might be an announcement by the manager either on Friday or over the weekend to confirm that he is going to step down in the summer, perhaps going upstairs, easing the tension and allowing the team to have a go for the Europa League without the same strain.

McTominay cost the club nothing to sign, having come through United's development teams since the age of 5 and signed a first professional contract in 2013.

"I still see myself as a winger because I've played there for so long".
