Manchester United will be back to the Champions League action tomorrow, Tuesday, in the second leg of the Champions League knock out stage, group of 16, where Manchester United will be playing against Sevilla at home, Old Trafford, where the Red Devils will eye a qualification to the quarter-final through a home win where Manchester United fans got a bad update on Paul Pogba’s injury.
Manchester United has to play with the strongest available squad against FC Sevilla in order to qualify for the next stage, where the team will be defending as well which is known as “parking the bus” in order to prevent Sevilla from scoring an away goal.
However, Jose Mourinho, Manchester United’s manager, may miss one of his best and most dangerous players, Paul Pogba, tomorrow where the Portuguese manager handed Manchester United fans a bad update about the injury of the French midfielder, Paul Pogba.
Jose Mourinho has confirmed that Paul Pogba may not play tomorrow in the Champions League against Sevilla FC, and he refused to give an estimated date for his return.
Jose Mourinho said:” Paul Pogba trained. But I am not sure if Paul Pogba will be available for tomorrow’s match.”
This comes in a very crucial stage of the season where Manchester United needs every single player to be fit in order to fight for the FA Cup, Champions League, and securing the best position in the Premier League.
Jose Mourinho is expected to start with a similar formation to the one that played against Liverpool FC where the team won 2-1 against Jurgen Klopp’s side at home, Old Trafford, where Jose Mourinho attacked in the first half and scored twice by a counterattack by Marcus Rashford, and defended in the second half.
We expect the midfield to include Nemanja Matic, Scott Mctominay, and Marouane Fellaini with a 4-3-3 formation with Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, and Romelu Lukaku up front, unless Jose Mourinho plays with a 4-2-3-1 formation where Marcus Rashford will be starting on the wing, and Marouane Fellaini will be benched, the same starting Xl as the one against Liverpool FC.
Knowing that Paul Pogba is having several issues with Jose Mourinho recently, and the news about his injury is a doubt by several sides which believe that Jose Mourinho is punishing Paul Pogba.
