Pogba misses training ahead of Sevilla tie

GETTYRomelu Lukaku set up the opener for Manchester United against Liverpool

The former Watford and Aston Villa man has earned an England recall this season and was praised for his man-of-the-match performance at full-back during United's 2-1 Premier League victory against Liverpool on Saturday.

Patrick van Aanholt got his side back in the match in stoppage time, but it was too little too late for Palace as Chelsea held out for a first win in four in all competitions. While the assists seem high, they have been concentrated in a few matches, while in the rest, he hasn't had a lot to offer.

Tottenham bounced back from their bitterly disappointing Champions League exit at the hands of Juventus by coming from behind to thrash Bournemouth and leapfrog Liverpool into third.

This season, he has played 17 times but increasingly in the bigger games.

After the game, Mourinho criticized the fans.

Matters on the pitch added to the vitriolic mood, with Ashley Barnes and a Chris Wood double steering Burnley to a second win in a week, closing the gap on sixth-placed Arsenal, who host Watford on Sunday, to two points.

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

Rashford's opportunities have diminished since Alexis Sanchez joined from Arsenal in January, despite the Chilean scoring just once in nine United appearances.

In a sense, McTominay is everything that Paul Pogba isn't.

Sanchez's signing pushed Rashford out of contention for a starting position.

Jurgen Klopp's touchline antics at Old Trafford on Saturday have received the unexpected support of Manchester United counterpart Jose Mourinho. But the way, Manchester United smothered those attacks meant that Liverpool were expected to score only a single goal, which they eventually did, albeit from a cross and not a shot. David De Gea was undoubtedly the stand-out performer as the Reds played out a goalless draw in Andalucia three weeks ago.

Rivals Watch: Following the four ties that were played last week, there are four more last-16 games taking place this week. Think a 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town, a draw away at Leicester City. The Reds have largely struggled against teams from Spain in Europe, winning just 13 of our previous 51 games.

"The same problem came back on the Sunday of that week in training, so then I had the procedure the following week, which I went through and now it's totally fine and I'm clear".
