Sevilla, Brighton more important than Liverpool - Mourinho

Mohamed Salah

Manchester United will put themselves in contention for Champions League glory if they overcome Sevilla, according to Jose Mourinho - even though they are not one of the best in teams in the tournament.

"We won 2-1 against Liverpool on Saturday and at the end of the game there were some who said it was a disaster".

Gary Neville believes that Romelu Lukaku has gone some way towards proving his critics wrong with his recent performances for Manchester United.

He got the injuries of Michael Carrick, [Marouane] Fellaini, [Paul] Pogba and [Ander] Herrera - basically all of the midfield players I have.

Following Tuesday's tie, with a place in the last eight of the competition at stake, there is the visit of Brighton & Hove Albion to the Theatre of Dreams on Saturday in an Emirates FA Cup quarter-final.

Manchester United look to move into the last eight of the Champions League on Tuesday as they take on Sevilla. But nothing is decided yet.

The Spain global said: "I don't think about City, just about us". "It says nothing. In modern football you have to live day by day, week by week and match by match".

"I can imagine that if we lose against Sevilla, everyone will have forgotten what we did in the last couple of weeks".

"Against Liverpool if you play bad when you have the ball you can be in trouble".

Manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly looking to lure three new players to Manchester United ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Van Gaal dragged the club back to Champions League football but saw his side regress in his second season as they settled for the Europa League. "It's something that you have got to accept", the Englishman said. "He always wants to better himself".

While the former Chelsea manager is certainly on the right course and is the right man to lead United back to where they belong, it's still too early to state what the pundit did. "It took a little while to get over".

To do so, Mourinho must find the right blend between attack and defence with big decisions to be made over whether Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez start.

Sevilla, on the other hand, have had a mixed run of form in the four games post the first leg tie. "I will go and speak with him. If I finished the session one minute before it wouldn't have happened". "Of course we are not that far behind in our development. It's something you have to accept", Carrick said.

He also cited Sevilla's group-stage draws against Jurgen Klopp's men as a sign of their quality.
