Three things we learned from Jose Mourinho's pre-Sevilla press conference

Revealed The Reason The Arsenal Players Hated Alexis Sanchez

The 24-year-old missed Saturday's 2-1 win against bitter rivals Liverpool with an injury sustained on the eve of the game.

Anthony Martial is also back in contention and Zlatan Ibrahimovic has returned to training, but Ander Herrera, Phil Jones, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo are expected to miss out.

Since then, they have only featured in the Champions League five times, going out to Leicester City at this stage last season.

Mourinho believes they are still some way off the European elite, but believes from his experiences of winning the competition with Porto and Inter Milan, anything is possible if they make the last eight. Sanchez remains one of the most experienced players in a relatively young United team with most number of Champions League appearances to his kitty. "I think tomorrow is a very hard match". "I don't know, we don't know yet, but he trained a little bit after you left". Manchester United know any victory would suffice to ensure progression and barring a minor disaster, their name should be in the hat for the quarterfinal draw.

Doubters may have been quietened by successive wins over Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Liverpool, with a mix of performances ultimately doing enough to give the Red Devils a cushion in second place.

"I think the Europa League final was internationally our most important match in the last years because we won the competition and that victory brought us to Manchester United's natural habitat, which is the Champions League", he said.

Rashford has scored three times in seven Champions League games this term, and he'll be aiming to add to that record if given the chance to do so against Sevilla. "I'm really happy with Marcus".
