Mourinho hints Pogba fit to face Sevilla

"The game they had against Betis was special because it was the local derby".

Antonio Valencia and David De Gea, who were also not involved in the weekend win will return to the starting XI as well.

Pogba has returned to training after missing Saturday's FA Cup victory over Huddersfield with illness, and Mourinho suggested he could be ready for Wednesday's trip to Sevilla in the first leg of the Champions League last-16.

Pogba returned to full training on Tuesday, after missing United's FA Cup fifth round win over Huddersfield Town through illness, with the France worldwide under increased scrutiny over his dip in form.

"I think it happens with every team when the best players, the most crucial players, for some reason are not performing". "I think that's not fair".

"I brought two kids (Hamilton and Gomes) that played 90 minutes yesterday (on Friday for the Under-23s) because I don't have another player".

Meanwhile, Roma manager Eusebio di Francesco has praised the "sensational" form of winger Cengiz Under before his side's Champions League last-16 first-leg tie against Shakhtar Donetsk on Wednesday.

Sevilla were drawn against the Red Devils in the last-16 of the UCL.

Most famously perhaps, it was while managing in Italy himself that such talents were espoused to most devastating effect; Inter Milan's defeat of Barcelona in the semi-final of the 2010 Champions League a momentous achievement given the objective assessment of Guardiola's side throughout this period.

And Mourinho says the pull of Champions League football was enough to lure Sanchez to the "Theatre of Dreams".

When it was pointed out to him that he had won many titles in Spain, Mourinho smiled, held up three fingers and said: "no, not many", and he insisted that there would be no repeat of the 6-2 scoreline he twice achieved here with Real Madrid, but he has an admirer in the Sevilla coach. Having sacked then manager Eduardo Berizzo owing to poor results, things have been looking up for the Spanish outfit under new boss Vincenzo Montella. He added: "Montella is Italian - they know how to organise their team from a defensive point of view". They can be nice and say we are favourites but that means absolutely nothing. They have a good bench, Guido Pizzaro has been replacing Banega while he's been injured, Miguel Layun has been replacing Escudero on the left.
