Sevilla prepared to 'suffer' against Man United at Old Trafford - Montella

The 36-year-old was treated earlier this season for an irregular heart rhythm

The player appeared to sit out training on Monday, but manager Jose Mourinho told the media: "He did (train) after you left".

The Times claim there is no suggestion the 21-year-old crocked Pogba on goal in Friday's training session ahead of United's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

United's midfield three of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Juan Mata in the first leg was designed with counter-attacking purposes in mind - a triumvirate capable of supplying and finishing off one killer pass to make all the difference - but it ultimately caused the visitors to stagnate and regress during the game.

United managed to hold out for the victory, which means they have a five-point cushion over Liverpool in second place.

MANCHESTER - Paul Pogba has missed training ahead of Manchester United's Champions League clash with Sevilla on Tuesday.

Mourinho-managed teams, too, are hard to beat when they are ahead - a fact highlighted by a prolific Liverpool side's struggles to break down United after the Portuguese set his side up defensively in the second period following Marcus Rashford's two-goal salvo in the first 24 minutes. McTominay and Matic plugged the gaps and, along with Ashley Young hounding Mohamed Salah, blunted Liverpool's lethal forward line.

Karachi will also host the PSL final on March 25, while Lahore will host two play-off games on March 20 and 21. Najam Sethi announced on Sunday that West Indies cricket board has been agreed to play T20 series in Pakistan.

The 36-year-old moved to Old Trafford from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2006.

But the Frenchman now faces a race against time to be fit for the Champions League last 16 second leg clash against Seville at Old Trafford tomorrow night. That means United must win.

The Andalusians also have history to deal with - Sevilla have played six times in England and not won even once. Their form since the first leg is not encouraging.

According to the Portuguese manager, the players were joking about the own goal in the dressing room after the match.

At the same time, it has to be remembered that Sevilla were the team disappointed with the fact that the first leg ended goalless. The former Manchester City star is the only one who would be a starter if fit, however, while the absences of Corchia, Carrico and Carole certainly weaken the side defensively. The ball is now in the Mancunian court.
