Manchester United now sit second in the Premier League table and are still in the FA Cup and Champions League.

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

Jose Mourinho's men will doubtless be hoping to keep it tight again and nick the crucial goal to progress, but Sevilla are formidable opponent and now sit fifth in La Liga.

Mourinho confirmed Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Phil Jones are all injured and will play no part against Sevilla.

And Red Devils playmaker Mata has talked up the importance of not underestimating their Spanish opponents in the return leg of their Champions League tie on Tuesday night at Old Trafford. "I don't know. We don't know yet, but he trained a little bit after you left".

The 24-year-old missed Saturday's 2-1 win against bitter rivals Liverpool with an injury sustained on the eve of the game.

"I remember at the beginning when I was taking him as an extra player, in the meetings, in the dressing room at half-time eating every word, listening to everything", Mourinho told reporters.

In 2004 his Porto side denied Deportivo following a 0-0 draw in Portugal in the first leg, winning the return match 1-0 in Spain, but within a year his Chelsea side were being beaten 1-0 by Luis Garcia's "ghost goal" for Liverpool following a 0-0 semi-final first leg at Stamford Bridge.

Rashford has scored three times in seven Champions League games this term, and he'll be aiming to add to that record if given the chance to do so against Sevilla.
