Mourinho-managed teams, too, are hard to beat when they are ahead - a fact highlighted by a prolific Liverpool side's struggles to break down United after the Portuguese set his side up defensively in the second period following Marcus Rashford's two-goal salvo in the first 24 minutes.

Marcus Rashford's brace to sink Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday bolstered confidence around what Mourinho's squad might be able to achieve this season, although the man himself remains a realist.

Despite the Red Devils holding the advantage of playing the second leg at home without a deficit to overcome, Sevilla president Jose Castro believes his side are on the cusp of reaching the last eight of European football's premier cup competition for the first since 1957/58. There were, however, wins against both Malaga and Athletic Bilbao in between that sandiwch of defeats.

Business Report: What happens if Trump does steel tariffs
On Friday, he tweeted that " trade wars are good and easy to win" - one of his most ridiculous tweets ever, which is saying a lot. President Donald Trump is prepared to do in the name of so-called "winning". "Millions of people addicted and dying", he said .

"I think it is a very hard match", said Mourinho.

Mourinho also admitted in the weeks since the 0-0 draw in Seville that January signing Alexis Sanchez has failed to hit top gear.

"We know it's going to be tough, it's a very competitive even-stevens game". Nemanja Matic struck home a gorgeous half-volley in added time for a remarkably good comeback. The Portuguese had stated then that it is high time that Old Trafford experienced a big Champions League night. Think a 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town, a draw away at Leicester City.

Manager Jose Mourinho had on Saturday after the Liverpool game replied that he did not know if Pogba will be available for the winner-takes-all tie.

The former Chelsea manager reflected on how United eventually returned to the Champions League by winning last season's Europa League. But a second-half comeback was typical more of the teams of old. They rarely allowed United any meaningful time on the ball during the first leg and created a number of chances.

"I think the Europa League final was our most important match in the last few years, because we won it and that victory brought us to our natural habitat, which is the Champions League", said Mourinho. "It's something that you have got to accept", said the 36-year-old at a press-conference.
