Manchester United will be at Sevilla tomorrow night for the road leg of their UEFA Champions League knockout round tie; and they could be missing several key players. Star man Paul Pogba will likely be a game time decision, but the latest reports are promising as he returned to training on Sunday.
Marouane Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are long term absentees, while Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera are reportedly in a race to be fit in time. Their prospects of returning in time look good. Hopes are also high that Antonio Valencia will return. Meanwhile Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are definitely out. Got all that? United played their last contest, a 2-0 win at Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup fifth round, with eight players out injured.
Expect more updates later tonight, after United manager Jose Mourinho holds his news conference. Perhaps he will give more information on the status of Paul Pogba.
On the other side, Sevilla have received a double injury boost as former United transfer target Ever Banega returned to training from a hamstring injury this week, while winger Joaquin Correa could be ready in time as he faces a late fitness test.
Nolito has also returned to training following a long-term injury spell on the sidelines, and could potentially feature tomorrow night.
Odds: United 29/20, Draw 23/10, Sevilla 11/5
