Montella revealed that he has been aware of Sanchez's quality since he moved to Europe with Udinese, and warned his players that they face a hard task in trying to stifle the Chilean.

SEVILLA claim the only way to stop Alexis Sanchez is to "kill him".

Sevilla manager, Vincenzo Montella, has said that they may have to "kill" Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez, to make it out of the Champions League round of 16 for the first time.

'He's going to be a huge success but I think it will take him a little bit of time'. "I don't know, we'll have to block him in some way, maybe tie him up with a rope".

The match will likely see Sanchez make his first appearance in the competition for United following his January move from Arsenal, and he appears to have settled in quickly.

The Spanish side will host United for the first leg of their UEFA Champions League last-16 tie and Montella remembers the Chile worldwide from his time in Italy when he played for Udinese.

"I think they have really good speed in attack".

There has been a lot of speculation regarding a breakdown in the relationship between Pogba and Jose Mourinho, but the United boss played down any rumours of a rift. "I have read books about his style of coaching", said Montella of Mourinho.

"I think he's fantastic and he really has done some things this year that have been unbelievable, with some of the goals he's scored and how he's created things". I hope that tomorrow is played with less emotion but with the same spirit as always.

Sevilla did have injury concerns before training on Tuesday, but Joaquin Correa and Ever Banega have both been passed fit in two significant boosts for Montella.
