Man United's Paul Pogba could still be fit vs. Sevilla - Jose Mourinho

The French midfielder has been labelled with criticism this season for some hot and cold performances, whilst the Jose Mourinho's side have performed well in his absence.

"There comes a time when, as much as you like or don't like it, your body tells you it's time to stop playing football".

Following Pogba's late injury that denied him a chance to face Liverpool on Saturday, there were rumours that the Frenchman would not be able to play at Old Trafford tonight but according to reports, 'Pog' has been included in the preliminary squad to face Sevilla.

It's nothing new for Mourinho, who has faced criticism throughout the season for the style of play employed at Old Trafford, but the Daily Telegraph's chief football writer Sam Wallace thinks the style of football currently being played is not sustainable long term.

Liverpool resume their league campaign next weekend against Watford, while United revert attention to the clubs European venture, taking on Sevilla on Tuesday night.

Firmino's cause was aided by his impressive statistical rating of 7.42, with the Brazilian making the joint-most dribbles (four), the joint-most tackles (four) and the joint-most shots on goal (three) of any Liverpool player.

Saturday's win over Jurgen Klopp's men came after a superb double from Marcus Rashford and it consolidated United's grip on second place in the Premier League table. "Sometimes you are in the team, sometimes you are not".

Finally, Mourinho reportedly wants to recruit an out-and-out left-back rather than continue using Ashley Young to deputise as a makeshift defender. "1-0 down changed the world for us, 2-0 feels really bad so early and after that you can immediately switch off", the German said.

Wenger must hope for more of the same as the tension over his future mounts.

The decision to not go looking for an away goal against a side that has lost heavily to the likes of Spartak Moscow, Eibar and Real Betis this season will come back to haunt Mourinho if United fail to progress.

"I reckon this summer Mourinho will take a hard look at the Pogba situation and think about moving him on".

"In the second half - in my opinion, and probably the people in the studio have a different opinion - was Liverpool controlling with the ball and United controlling without the ball". One good punch late in the game was brave and decisive but apart from that was virtually a spectator.

Reflecting a modest performance that included a spirited second-half fightback, Virgil van Dijk (5.7), Emre Can (5.7), James Milner (5.7), Sadio Mane (5.8) and Loris Karius (6) were all rated relatively highly.
