"Martial is fit yes".

"If Mourinho continues to insist on Rashford and Lingard remaining on the bench then they should leave United".

He has not played since Dec 26.

Mourinho confirmed £89 million (S$162.4 million) club-record signing Paul Pogba trained yesterday, having missed their 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday with a gashed leg, but Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind and Phil Jones look set to miss out. Asked if United have the potential to go all the way this season, Mourinho was cautious.

"Not yet, but when a team reaches the last eight, anything is possible", Mourinho said.

"We need to take the confidence from this game into future games". We are going to try to prove that we are better [than the first leg] and to try to win the match tomorrow.

Steven N'Zonzi of Sevilla in action with Marcus Rashford in the Round of 16 First Leg against Manchester United on 21 February 2018. To make the matters worse, the young right back also got a flick off Rashford's strike, possibly causing Karius to misjudge his attempted save.

"Probably you are not expecting my answer - I'm happy with the decision", Mourinho told United Kingdom newspapers.

"That's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine".

"It's kind of been sorted out (for a coaching role)". "We're still talking about it to be honest so there is nothing to totally confirm yet but it's looking likely".

The result saw United open up a four-point lead in second on the table, while Liverpool fell to fourth. After Mourinho came out after the Liverpool game criticising the fans who booed McTominay for his "negative" play', it will be interesting to see how the youngster deals with the pressure of a Champions League knockout fixture.

And Red Devils boss Mourinho chose to single out Lukaku for special praise after Saturday's important 2-1 victory over Liverpool FC.

The Round of 16 tie is evenly poised after the first leg in Spain, where the two sides failed to find the back of the net.

"We can split the halves", Mourinho was quoted as saying by Fox Sports.

In the Frenchman's absence, Sanchez was moved inside to create space for Rashford to tear Liverpool apart down United's left. But the Portuguese disputes the idea that Rashford is being held back under his charge.

"I think Liverpool in the second half were also playing a lot through the centre, allowed us to close more people in the inside, more people were close to each other, but Ashley was brilliant, yes".

While speaking ahead of the game, Montella said: " Tomorrow is a special match for me.
