Mourinho explains Paul Pogba omission; snaps after 3rd question

Mourinho explains Paul Pogba omission; snaps after 3rd question

Manchester United survived plenty of pressure to claim a 0-0 draw at Sevilla in the first leg of their Champions league last-16 clash, owing particular thanks to an huge David de Gea save at the end of the first half.

Meanwhile, Mourinho also took a thinly-veiled swipe at Manchester City over their acrimonious FA Cup defeat at Wigan Athletic.

The Red Devils have made this knockout stage of European football's top competition for the first time since 2014, while the Andalusian club met Leicester at this juncture a year ago.

Three points as Manchester United draw 0-0 with Sevilla in their Champions League round of 16 first leg.

De Gea, arguably the world's best goalkeeper, made a bunch of crucial saves, especially in the first half.

The Spain global lasted just 17 minutes before appearing to suffer a recurrence of the issue and Mourinho was quick to point the finger at his medical team for saying Herrera was match fit.

"We had a good percentage of the ball and some control of the game, I think the three midfield players had good control and Paul was part of it".

Celtic's Brendan Rodgers dares to dream of doing a runner again
For us, it's a case of matching that intensity and aggression, staying calm and when we have the ball, to show our qualities. If Celtic hope to make it to the last 16 of the Europa League , they will hope that McGregor will be at the top of his game.

Watch the best bits of De Gea's performance against Sevilla in the video above. Is Romelu Lukaku the striker they need?

Unfortunately for Jose Mourinho, that is often what puts the pressure on him with many criticising his defensive setups.

If United want to see off the Spaniards at Old Trafford in a few weeks' time, they will have to be far more convincing at the back.

"How were we going to do that with a young kid, who was inexperienced and looked like he was lacking confidence?"

Jose Mourinho stunned BT Sport viewers when he asked for a hug from reporter Des Kelly after Manchester United's 0-0 draw with Sevilla.

Up front for Sevilla is Luis Muriel, who starts ahead of top-scorer Wissam Ben Yedder, despite the Frenchman scoring six of the club's 12 goals in this season's Champions League. We played exactly as you should: "we were disciplined in every stage of the game but we leave here feeling a little bitter that we couldn't score". We have some players with experience and others without experience but I think in the end I normally say Champions League dreams they start around the quarter-finals and not in last 16, it still looks a long way to go.
