Jose Mourinho raves about 'fantastic, fundamental' Man United star

Only Cristiano Ronaldo, Harry Kane, Edinson Cavani and Roberto Firmino have scored more times in the Champions League than Sevilla attacker Wissam Ben Yedder (six goals) this season.

Vincenzo Montella acknowledged Manchester United have the players to worry him and he expects his Sevilla side to face a "very offensive" opponent at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Asked whether he felt he had a squad good enough to make it a hat-trick of titles with United, he replied: "Not yet".

Rob is ESPN FC's Manchester United correspondent. The buzz in the stadium will be an obvious plus for United on Tuesday night but apart from that, the Liverpool match provided a glimpse of how Manchester United can adjust without Paul Pogba.

The United boss confirmed that Paul Pogba was able to take part in some of today's training session after the media had left but it's not yet clear if the midfielder will be available tomorrow. McTominay and Matic plugged the gaps and, along with Ashley Young hounding Mohamed Salah, blunted Liverpool's lethal forward line.

But Mourinho insists it may be a while until the 29-year-old hits top form at Old Trafford. That was the first official meeting between both clubs, and it will also be the first official match for the Andalucia side at Old Trafford. They rarely allowed United any meaningful time on the ball during the first leg and created a number of chances.

"I think his humble nature is what is making him a good player for us".

I do think at close to even money it is a great price on Arsenal to win given the quality of players who should play and it is another opportunity to build momentum, and get the fans that are there on side.

The decision to not go looking for an away goal against a side that has lost heavily to the likes of Spartak Moscow, Eibar and Real Betis this season will come back to haunt Mourinho if United fail to progress.

I actually watched a lot of this first leg and Besiktas didn't do badly to start with but then the game exploded on them.

At the same time, it has to be remembered that Sevilla were the team disappointed with the fact that the first leg ended goalless.

"It is a big opportunity for us, " said the Italian, who will be without former Manchester City wide man Jesus Navas through injury.
