Knowing that Manchester United doesn’t have a very good record in Spain where the Red Devils under several managers were able to win just two of the last 23 away European games in all competitions against a Spanish club, which means Jose Mourinho has to choose wisely and don’t allow Sevilla FC to surprise Manchester United and score at their home tonight.
Jose Mourinho said today that he will be playing the Chilean superstar, Alexis Sanchez, will be playing today, and he said Alexis Sanchez didn’t come just to play two games in the Champions League, which means that Manchester United will be eyeing a win and Jose Mourinho admitted that a win is their aim, which may put some pressure on Manchester United who is going through a shaky form recently.
On the other hand, Paul Pogba traveled with the team, but his start isn’t guaranteed after being dropped recently.
