Jose Mourinho Admits United Aren't Among Best in Champions League

Sevilla send funny tweet to David de Gea ahead of Tuesday's European clash Mourinho names the 'most important match' of his reign

Man United players during a training session on the eve of their Champions League Last-16 tie against Sevilla in Manchester yesterday.

The stands of Old Trafford stadium on Tuesday were abuzz with around 2,200 Sevilla fans, fervently hoping for an away win in the second leg game against English football giants Manchester United in the Champions League round-of-16.

Paul Pogba missed United's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday through injury, and he wasn't missed.

Forwards Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial returned to the group workout, having recovered from their injuries.

Mourinho has not ruled out Paul Pogba returning to the Manchester United line-up against the La Liga outfit, after he made a training return on Monday.

Kenyan opposition suspends plans to oust president
The meeting on 9 March 2018 between Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga was as unanticipated as it is significant.

Manchester United go into Tuesday's game as favourites to qualify after their goal-less draw in the first leg, and they have their goalkeeper to thank for holding that advantage.

But as the Champions League enters the knockout stages, only 12 teams remain and the quarterfinal of any cup competition is the point at which teams start to believe they can go all the way.

Of course, the league titles races in England, France and Germany were all done and dusted by Christmas, with Italy's Serie A the only genuine title race among Europe's big hitting leagues. "I don't know, we don't know yet, but he trained a little bit after you left". I know that it is very hard to go through.

23-year-old Shaw, who joined United from Southampton in 2014, will likely have to wait until the weekend to get his chance to play, with United set to face Brighton at Old Trafford in the quarter finals of the FA Cup.

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.
