Manchester United gaffer Jose Mourinho says second half belonged to Liverpool

Manchester United gaffer Jose Mourinho says second half belonged to Liverpool

However, Mourinho stated Pogba did actually train once journalists had left and left open the possibility that the Frenchman could be fit enough to return.

He has not played since Dec 26. Asked if United have the potential to go all the way this season, Mourinho was cautious. After a goalless first-leg in Andalucia three weeks ago, it's victor takes all at the Theatre of Dreams as the Reds hope to reach the last eight of Europe's elite competition for the first time since 2014.

"We know it's a tough task and we're going to suffer throughout the 90 minutes or longer". We have to give 100%, score and pass.

Manchester United stalwart Michael Carrick has announced he will call time on his playing career at the end of the campaign - after 19 years as a professional footballer. "It's something that you have got to accept", said the 36-year-old at a press-conference.

On the topic of joining Mourinho's staff he said: "It's kind of been sorted out, but we're still talking about it so there is nothing to totally confirm yet".

The victory now sees United five points clear of Liverpool in second place, and 13 points behind pacesetters Manchester City - who have played a game fewer.

After what was viewed by many Manchester United fans as a disappointing result, Jose Mourinho's side laboured to a 0-0 draw at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in Seville in the first leg.

He repaid his manager's faith with a brace as the Red Devils ran out narrow 2-1 winners, but Crooks feels Rashford and teammate Jesse Lingard are best served away from Mourinho, given his record of nurturing players and considering England need the pair to be playing on a regular basis.

"We can split the halves", Mourinho was quoted as saying by Fox Sports.


"If he was coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose because he lost every game".

Sanchez's signing pushed Rashford out of contention for a starting position. But the Portuguese disputes the idea that Rashford is being held back under his charge.

"We have eight more games and 24 points to play for, but Seville and Brighton are "live or die" games, so the next two are much more important than this one".

He started, he had a good match and I'm not just speaking about scoring goals because, for me, the analysis of a performance is much more than analysing the number of goals or assists.

"Marcus is having these experiences".

With all-too-predictable regularity, Manchester United have yet to face a really elite opponent in the tournament this time around and so the real test could be about to come in the quarterfinals should they make it. "There are 11 players that start, it's just one of those things".

"Of course not. He's a player we trust".

Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford tormented the Reds with their power, pace and finishing.

Eric Bailly's freakish own goal gave Liverpool hope in the second half, but United held on for a first victory over their North West rivals since January, 2016.
