Defiant Jose Mourinho hails Manchester United following win over rivals Liverpool

Sevilla did not sell out the home game and they also had to refund a portion from Tuesday's ticket prices to their home fans.

Sevilla made it out of Group E in second place, finishing behind a Liverpool side that went unbeaten. It is a very important game for us.

"Pogba's had illness, he's having his most hard time since he joined Manchester United".

In fact, United have beaten every team below them at least once this season - from Spurs in third to bottom-placed West Brom - and have a (slim) chance to beat leaders Manchester City, as well as Arsenal for a second time, before the season is out.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are running away with the Premier League title and Nicol has no complaints about the Spaniard being considered top of the pops.

The Reds wound up slipping to fourth spot in the Premier League table this past weekend after the Red Devils, Chelsea and Tottenham all won.

"Second half we had to continue chasing the game, then we scored the goal and should have been a penalty around Fellaini situation on Sadio", Klopp lamented.

But as far as the season is concerned, there is still a lot of work left for Mourinho to do, if he is to take United to "where they belong", something which he emphatically promised when he replaced Louis Van Gaal at helm. It would take an epic collapse and a epic form from the teams behind them to knock United out of the top four. But he needs to get his form back, he needs to be playing, and he needs to be standing out in games like Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The truth is, Manchester United have a great chance to make a serious attempt at winning the Champions League.

While this United side may not have accrued the Champions League nous of the Sir Alex Ferguson sides, they still have players such as Juan Mata and Antonio Valencia, who have played in the competition's finals.

Another United player who could feature is McTominay.

"Perfect result. I wouldn't go so far as saying it was a flawless performance". He played the full 90 minutes in the first leg and will be a big loss for Sevilla.

While a friendly handshake between Pogba and Jose Mourinho in the tunnel seemed to quell the rumours of disharmony, there was no shortage of fans and pundits doubting whether the Frenchman will have a clean passage back into the team. "So I think his humble nature is what is making him a good player for us".

"I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank de Boer saying it's not good for Rashford to have a coach like me", Mourinho said.
