Ryan Giggs: Why Manchester United deserve criticism following Liverpool clash

Ryan Giggs: Why Manchester United deserve criticism following Liverpool clash

Mourinho described the 0-0 draw in the first leg as "not great but not bad" but United come into the game in good form after a morale-boosting fortnight in which they've beaten Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

Pogba, who was surprisingly named on the bench for the goalless first leg, was not alone in missing training at the Aon Training Complex.

Delivering two major trophies last season and a return to the Champions League represented a foundation base upon which to build, and while they are not at Europe's elite level yet there are signs that something big is building.

United themselves have managed to pull off the feat three times, although they failed on the first two occasions in which they found themselves in such a position.

Passengers said they could feel heat from the vents shortly before the crew said the plane was going to make an emergency landing. According to KRQE-TV, Southwest flight 3562 took off from Phoenix last night and was headed for Dallas Love Field Airport.

United will be in the hat for the quarter-final draw this Friday if they can overcome their Spanish opponents.

Meanwhile, United are not expected to make many changes to the side that beat Liverpool 2-1 on Saturday, particularly as Paul Pogba is expected to miss out for the second game running. I expect a cagey start but back the hosts to win 2-1 to progress to the quarter finals.

Sevilla were eliminated at this stage past year by Leicester City and they are the underdogs ahead of their first ever competitive match at Old Trafford.

That's the opinion of Red Devils hero Ryan Giggs who believes a 0-0 draw away from home is a risky result in the competition. Earlier this week Michael Carrick confirmed his retirement from football at the end of the season, and United will be looking to give the midfield veteran a fitting send-off by potentially winning the competition for the second time in Carrick's career.
