Manchester United vs Sevilla: Latest Champions League scores, goals and updates

Manchester United will bid to become the third English side to reach this year's Champions League quarter-finals when they face Sevilla at Old Trafford in the second leg of their last-16 encounter.

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

Jose Mourinho’s side go into the game full of confidence after Saturday's 2-1 victory over Liverpool cemented their place in second spot in the Premier League to make their qualification for next year's Champions League via a top-four finish highly likely.

That is a marked contrast to last season when they finished sixth and had to win the Europa League to earn a place back in the continent's elite club competition.

19:36: And the line-ups have arrived. A quick glance tells me that Paul Pogba has recovered from his injury, but starts on the bench.

Subs: Romero, Lindelof, Pogba, Mata, Martial, Darmian, McTominay.

ELSEWHERE…

18:35: Team news should be dropping in any second now. While we wait, allow me to tell you what else is on the agenda this evening.

Roma host Shakhtar Donetsk in the second leg of their round of 16 clash trailing 2-1 on aggregate after falling to defeat in Ukraine last month.

Shakhtar have not reached the quarter-final stage of the Champions League since 2011 and even then they were hammered 6-1 on aggregate by eventual winners Barcelona.

RASHFORD TO START?

18:30: United's hero at the weekend was homegrown forward Marcus Rashford, who marked his first Premier League start of 2018 with a brace.

Rashford has experienced the kind of inconsistency many his age show but the 20-year-old offered a timely reminder of his brilliance against Liverpool to also prove to Mourinho he can be relied upon in the big moments.

Alexis Sanchez had been underwhelming on the left anyway so Mourinho may consider utilising the Chilean more centrally again and allowing Rashford, a player surely imbued with confidence, to slot in on the left once more.

EVENING

18:20: Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all been lucky at the Cheltenham Festival today.

I started brilliantly with Summerville Boy in the opening race, and in signature fashion, proceeded to lose all of the next six.

My punt in the 16:50 is just approaching the finish line now…

Anyway, we’re not here to blab about horse racing, it’s time for the football as Manchester United look to reach this year's Champions League quarter-finals.

I’m sure Frank de Boer will be wishing Jose Mourinho every success…

Paul Pogba is a doubt for Manchester United's Champions League last-16 second leg against Sevilla.

The 24-year-old missed Saturday's Premier League win against Liverpool through injury and manager Jose Mourinho is unsure whether the midfielder will be available.

Anthony Martial is back and Zlatan Ibrahimovic trained with his United team-mates ahead of the match, but Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Daley Blind remain sidelined.

Provisional squad: De Gea, Romero, Pereira, Valencia, Darmian, Shaw, Young, Lindelof, Smalling, Bailly, Matic, Carrick, Pogba, Fellaini, McTominay, Mata, Lingard, Martial, Sanchez, Rashford, Lukaku, Ibrahimovic.
