Mourinho names the game that restored Man Utd's reputation

14 March 2018

For should Jose Mourinho successfully guide United into the quarter-finals, then he will finally be able to say "I, Jose Mourinho, am as good at being Manchester United manager as David Moyes".

United, who were playing their first Champions League knockout game in four years, have won 15 of their 18 home games so far this season. "I knock out Manchester United at home at Old Trafford".

United stifled Liverpool's exhilarating attack early on at Old Trafford and raced into a two-goal lead with 24 minutes on the clock after a double from Rashford. "I still have to work to swallow this one and it's quite hard".

De Boer will be remembered by younger football fans not for his exploits as a talented defender in the Netherlands national team of yesteryear, but for his dismal spell as manager of English side Crystal Palace, where his side lost the first four games without scoring a solitary goal.

Mourinho said: "I've sat in this chair twice before, with Porto - Man Utd out, and with Real Madrid - Man Utd out".

Romelu Lukaku pulled one back for United from close range in the 84th but a late rally couldn't prevent United slipping out of the competition in meek fashion. "So this is nothing new for this football club".

Mourinho's gamble on Fellaini appeared to have largely backfired as he failed to impose his physical presence on Sevilla's ball players in midfield.

The French worldwide took part in some of the training session today and I think he'll be passed fit to start tomorrow. Montella's side head to Manchester with some injury problems, particularly in defence .

"We played an excellent match in the first leg, we have to play that to 180 minutes now". Paul Pogba is doubtful, and all signs indicate he will be a game-time decision.

The former Blackburn midfielder made the most passes in the game, 94, and 51 of those were in United's half, showing how much freedom he was allowed in a game when he could have expected to spend the night on the back foot.

The visitors were deserving winners as they controlled the game throughout but had to wait for Ben Yedder's introduction as a substitute to add a clinical finish.

"Are you really interested, being Spanish press, in the intricacies of our own season?" he told another when asked if being eliminated from the Champions League and Carabao Cup as well as falling short in the Premier League title race represented failure for United.
