  • Paul Pogba included in Manchester United's Champions League squad to face Sevilla

The La Liga side go into Tuesday's game knowing a score draw will be enough to seal their passage past Jose Mourinho's men, but, as they found out in the first leg, finding a way to beat De Gea is easier said than done.

The Reds boss knows United remain a work in progress in his second season in charge and claims they are not among the contenders to win the Champions League this year.

Manchester United's win over Liverpool FC lifted them up into second place in the Premier League table as they look to try and finish as close to champions elect Manchester City.

The two sides played out a goalless draw in the first leg in Spain last month to leave the last 16 tie finely poised ahead of the return leg this week.

"We are not one of the best teams in the competition but when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen".

Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Nicholas said: "This might not be as big for the fans, but this is as big as Saturday in terms of it being huge for them to be in Champions League quarter-finals".

"Liverpool are a very good team, with an important stadium and with a big tradition, so it says Sevilla are a really good team".

They go into the game on the back of an impressive victory against arch-rivals Liverpool at home and have won their last three Premier League encounters against Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Liverpool respectively. "I don't feel that we have any advantage in this moment". But when you draw away, even though it's a 0-0, we get to decide the tie at home. "So not to win would be a disappointment".

Speaking to La Sexta, and covered by Marca and others, Mourinho was asked about De Gea potentially moving to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window. "By winning the Europa League we won a title and got back into the Champions League".

"I see him here", said Mourinho.
