Manchester United 4/7 to beat Sevilla in Tuesdays Champions League clash

GETTYRomelu Lukaku set up the opener for Manchester United against Liverpool

Manchester United chief coach Jose Mourinho asserted that the second half belonged to the away side after defeating Liverpool 2-1 in the English Premier League (EPL) at the Old Trafford here.

"There comes a time when, as much as you like or don't like it, your body tells you it's time to stop playing football".

Manchester United's Marcus Rashford scores the opening goal against Liverpool at Old Trafford. "Our big week started against Liverpool", he said.

"If you leave the technical area by a couple of metres - or in this case 20 metres - but to speak to your own player and not to complain about the referee's decision, they made the right decision".

Jose Mourinho has already said that there's a chance to win the Champions League if his team reaches the last eight and will be looking to come through for the Red Devil faithful.

Following Tuesday's tie, with a place in the last eight of the competition at stake, there is the visit of Brighton & Hove Albion to the Theatre of Dreams on Saturday in an Emirates FA Cup quarter-final. "We know it's going to be tough, but you don't enter a competition to not win it".

Lingard praised the attitude of Rashford, who was making a first league start of 2018. He is using every minute on the pitch and off it to learn. With regular right-backs Jesus Navas and Sebastian Corchia both out injured, and Miguel Layun also absent due to injury, there will be some reshuffling that Montella has to do to get his defence ready. United will likely deliver that result under the astute preparation of Mourinho coupled with Sevilla's form, which has been poor of late.

"He doesn't have to (speak to me)", said the forward. "It was contact with a player in the last minute of the training session".

News Agency of Nigeria reports that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp claimed in his post-match interview that his side should have had a penalty when Sadio Mane was challenged by Marouane Fellaini and they deserved at least a point. "We don't have to win three, four, five, we have to win 1-0, 2-1, 5-4, 8-7". The reaction was as good as you can say after you still lost.

"If people don't think we deserved it, I don't care". Manchester United know any victory would suffice to ensure progression and barring a minor disaster, their name should be in the hat for the quarterfinal draw.
