Jose Mourinho Wants Three New Players At Manchester United

Michael Carrick

21 - The number of Carrick's 24 United goals scored at Old Trafford, with just three away from home (Wigan in 2009, QPR in 2013 and Northampton in 2016).

Vincenzo Montella is hoping it is fourth time lucky as Sevilla attempt to overcome Manchester United and reach the Champions League quarterfinals.

"He's not a kid - he's a lad with many years of football and many years of experience".

"Die or live", is how Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho described their upcoming Champions League match against Sevilla and the following Premier League game against Brighton and Hove Albion.

"You know, fortunately this year we're back there, back in the knockout stages where it really counts".

"When a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is you are among the best, but anything can happen".

"I think we're not one of the best teams in the competition", said Mourinho.

United managed to hold out for the victory, which means they have a five-point cushion over Liverpool in second place. The biggest games at this time of the season. That's pretty much where I'm at, which is fine. Kick-off is at 19:45GMT, but we'll have build up for you before then before team news is out an hour before we get underway at Old Trafford.

Marcus Smart Out Indefinitely With Torn Tendon In Thumb
Smart played through the injury on Sunday but it sounds like the injury is worse than it initially appeared. Smart is averaging 10.2 points per game for the Celtics, and he is their best on-ball perimeter defender.

"It's kind of been sorted out (for a coaching role)". We're still talking about it, to be honest, so there's nothing totally confirmed as yet.

"But, yeah, it's looking likely".

Mourinho-managed teams, too, are hard to beat when they are ahead - a fact highlighted by a prolific Liverpool side's struggles to break down United after the Portuguese set his side up defensively in the second period following Marcus Rashford's two-goal salvo in the first 24 minutes.

Carrick is unlikely to be in the starting line-up on Tuesday, while there are also big questions over Paul Pogba's availability.

Pogba has been in and out of the side of late, for tactical reasons as well as injury problems.

"(Pogba) did (train) after you left", Mourinho said.

'I don't know what Real Madrid's intentions are, but if I were them, I would think of another player'.

Others who missed out are: Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Ander Herrera and Daley Blind even as Eric Bailly took part despite an injury scare on Saturday.
