Paul Pogba Named On The Bench For Manchester United's Champions League Clash With Sevilla

Jose Mourinho has named his Manchester United team for tonight's Champions League last-sixteen clash with Sevilla and Paul Pogba is named among the substitutes for this second leg at Old Trafford.

Anthony Martial has been passed fit and takes his place on the bench, although Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are all absent. 

Marouane Fellaini gets the nod in the centre of midfield ahead of Pogba, who had been a doubt for the game after missing Saturday's 2-1 Premier League win over Liverpool. Fellaini will line up alongside Nemanja Matic, while Jese Lingard, Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford will provide the attacking thrust. 

Manchester United were indebted to the brilliance of goalkeeper David de Gea in the first leg as he made several world-class saves to ensure the Red Devils came away from Spain with a goalless draw to show for their largely unadventurous efforts.

Sevilla have been a shadow of the team that won three successive Europa League titles between 2013 and 2016, with the Spanish side currently sitting fifth in the La Liga table, a massive 11 points adrift of the top-four.

Vincenzo Montella's side rarely travel well as they have won just one of their past 12 away games in the Champions League (drawn five, lost six) and their task tonight is made tougher by the absence of the injured Sebastien Corchia and Jesus Navas.
