Jose Mourinho: 'Referee right not to send off Jurgen Klopp'

United's record signing Paul Pogba was absent for Saturday's 2-1 victory over north-west rivals Liverpool due to injury and was not present for the section of training open to the media on Monday morning. "So, of course, knockout becomes more important than league matches". "If I finished the session one minutes before it wouldn't have happened".

It will be for Mourinho to decide but on Saturday at Old Trafford, where United have lost only once all season, they didn't park the bus.

"I would argue that if Klopp's Liverpool team were a little more streetwise, they would have got at least a draw out of the game, but they are too honest for their own good at times".

The Spanish club travel to Manchester on Tuesday evening for the second leg of their last-16 clash with the Red Devils - the victor will progress to the quarter-finals.

Jose Mourinho has won two Champions League titles, one with Porto and the other with Inter, and both of those came at clubs that were largely considered underdogs in the competition.

"It's fine, it's something you've got to accept so that is where I'm at". We need to win some thing.

Rashford also insisted that he didn't need to be reassured by his manager when he was struggling for playing time, saying: "He doesn't have to (speak to me)".

Jose Mourinho has branded Frank de Boer "the worst manager in the history of the Premier League".

The cricketer will have to attend the trial of court starting from August 6 which is expected to last for five to seven days. He played all five ODIs during the recent series against New Zealand, contributing well with both bat and ball.

The Anfield club host Watford on Merseyside on Saturday, before then facing Crystal Palace away two weeks later due to the worldwide break.

The Serbian worldwide has been in great form in Italy this season, scoring 11 goals and assisting a further seven strikes in 37 games.

To date, Rashford has earned 15 worldwide caps with England, scoring twice in the process - with his first coming three minutes into his debut against Australia in May 2016 - and creating two goals.

Manchester United is now second in the EPL standings, while Sevilla holds the fifth position in the La Liga table.

The latter will also be unavailable for England over the worldwide break, with the Portuguese saying Gareth Southgate should only select Jones if he "wants to take him for the medical department because he's injured". It is because of these players that the first 11 could not be rested often even in easier matches. I have to give the credit to Mr [Louis] Van Gaal who was responsible for his first season in the first team.

United, three time winners of this competition, drew 0-0 in the first leg in Spain last month.

"In a game like this, at the highest level, it is important to keep the same principles of your game", Montella said.

It's Phase 4 of 4 of the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 this week, giving us the final four quarter-finalists.
