However, the 29-year-old has struggled to replicate that kind of form since making the move to Old Trafford in January as part of a straight swap deal involving Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

"If Pogba's going forward and Sanchez is dropping, you can nearly throw a blanket over them - and that will be music to the ears of opponents. This stadium tonight was quiet and that's down to the players".
José Mourinho claimed that "everything has to change" at Manchester United if they are to rejoin Europe's elite after they crashed out of the Champions League at the last-16 stage with a humiliating home defeat by Seville last night. Lethargic. If you're a team at home, the onus is on you to attack.

"It was very hard watching that, it was hard watching the first game". There is no desire, no energy, no speed.
"You go back to the first game, in the modern game now, teams go to places and they try to score goals".
