Manchester United vs Sevilla: Team new, injuries, possible lineups


Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United will on Tuesday night go into the second leg of their UEFA Champions League round of 16 clash against Sevilla with 0-0, having drawn the first leg in Spain.

Mourinho’s men will hope to get a win against Sevilla at the Old Trafford so as to qualify for the quarter final of the competition.

Defenders Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are both back in training.

Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial were both missing from the squad in the weekend’s clash against Liverpool. They remain doubtful for this game.

United have only lost one of their last nine home Champions League games against Spanish sides, winning five and drawing three games. The only loss in the run was against Real Madrid at this stage in 2012-13 season.

The Red Devils have been impressive defensively in the competition this season. Only Barcelona (two goals) have conceded fewer goals in the Champions League this season than United who have conceded just three goals.

However, Sevilla have never won a Champions League game in England, drawing one and losing three games played. The only draw came against Liverpool in the group stages this season.

The Spanish club have conceded more goals (12) than any other team remaining in the competition.

Winger, Jesus Navas is suffering from calf injury and may not feature in the game.

Lionel Carole is out with a hamstring injury, while Sebastien Corchia is back in training after recovering from a groin injury.

After winning four of their first six away games in the competition, Sevilla have picked up just one win in their last 12 Champions League games on the road, drawing five and losing six games.
