Manchester United Star Missing From Training Ahead of Sevilla Clash

13 Mars 2018

Manchester United were given a huge boost in confidence as they managed to put daylight between them and their arch-rivals, Liverpool, after a deserved 2-1 victory over them at Old Trafford on Saturday. We know it's going to be tough.

"If we go to the quarter-final the opponent will always be one of the big names in European football". The midfielder, who moved over to Old Trafford from Tottenham Hotspur in 2006, will hang up his cleats at the end of 2017-18, and will likely join manager Jose Mourinho's coaching staff next season.

"I understood that I wouldn't be playing as many games, but I've been training hard and trying to keep fit".

"The good thing was the first chance he had, he got it, he scored because I think in the last two months that was not happening with him", Mourinho said of Rashford.

Most clubs would be delighted to be sitting second in the Premier League, into the FA Cup quarter-finals and on the verge of a return to the last eight of the Champions League.

"You could see that Valencia are risky on the counter, but Sevilla did not defend against that in their 2-0 defeat against them in La Liga on Saturday". "This isn't a vintage United side, but it's not as bad as the detractors would suggest", Andy Mitten, editor of the United We Stand fanzine, said. "But we will try". There are so many positions and I think it's only goalkeeper and centre-half that I haven't played so far [for United].

This season, he has played 17 times but increasingly in the bigger games.

"Another worrying stat as far as Sevilla are concerned is that they have not picked up a single point in their six encounters with the top four sides in Spain so far this season".

Louis van Gaal constantly took notes on the sideline during his Manchester United tenure but Jose Mourinho doesn't do it as often, which is probably why the Sky Sports cameras panned to the Portuguese frantically scribbling something in the first half. The 35-year-old, from Willemstad, has already handled four Champions League matches this term - including games involving Liverpool, Chelsea and Celtic during the group stage.

Rashford also insisted that he didn't need to be reassured by his manager when he was struggling for playing time, saying: "He doesn't have to (speak to me)".

McTominay will also have worldwide football to add to his schedule going forward, having been called up by Scotland for the first time on Monday.
