The 27-year-old made a staggering save to deny Sevilla's Luis Muriel from point-blank range, further enhancing his reputation as one of the best shot-stoppers in world football.

Of course, the league titles races in England, France and Germany were all done and dusted by Christmas, with Italy's Serie A the only genuine title race among Europe's big hitting leagues.

United are favourites to progress to the last-8 but must beat Sevilla to book their passage through.

Sevilla have never been to the quarter-finals of the Champions League and the goalkeeper admits it would be a historic moment for the club if they manage to cause an upset against Manchester United.

Carrick will be hoping to add to his medal-laden CV before the end of the season - a campaign the veteran confirmed will be his last as a player before taking up manager Jose Mourinho's offer to join the coaching staff.

Scott McTominay started in place of Pogba against Liverpool but the France global is set to regain his spot in what is said to be the only change for Mourinho's side, according to widespread reports.

Tuesday's other Champions League clash sees AS Roma host Shakhtar Donetsk at the Stadio Olimpico.

Pogba did not appear in much discomfort at Old Trafford after the Premier League game, but looks in danger of missing the Champions League second leg against Sevilla after missing training on Monday.

Their last two home victories have come in crucial Premier League clashes against Liverpool and Chelsea, with United showing excellent resilience and organisation in both matches.

Parallels can be drawn with Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid who adopted a similar approach and, across the past four seasons, had only been eliminated in the knockout stages by their city neighbours. Let us know by commenting below.
