VAR in the firing line again as United beat Huddersfield

When at Juventus, Pogba's best position was on the left side of a three-man midfield, guarded by two other players. Sevilla have not been as good in La Liga this season, while in the Champions League they came through from a group in which they played with Liverpool.

Firstly, he simply isn't pleased with the France international's performances over the past few weeks, as shown by his substitutions against Tottenham and Newcastle with the benching against Huddersfield in between.

There was never much chance of that with Brighton's record signing Locadia scoring with his first shot on target after 15 minutes and Leicester City loanee Leonardo Ulloa, who is in his second spell with the Seagulls, rounding off the win after Connor Goldson netted his first goal in nearly two years. "I believe so, I think Rashford, Herrera, Valencia", Mourinho said.

Mourinho has become the man entrusted to guide United back to the latter stages of Europe's premier club competition, and while it is assumed widely that the Reds will overcome the challenge of the Spaniards, it seems as if victory will have to be achieved without several key figures.

Suddenly his players are coming back into form and they will come alive in these big games.

The Premier League is effectively gone with leaders Manchester City 16 points clear, and although United should get past Sevilla in the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League, they arguably lack the quality to go all the way. I think they have a chance.

"I was told about Paul Pogba's illness this morning by the doctor". Four days later, Chelsea visit Old Trafford; both they and United must bounce back from recent league wobbles to banish fears of missing out on a top-four finish.

The victor of the replay will host Rochdale or Tottenham Hotspur, who play on Sunday. "I don't care (when he will return)", said Mourinho before kick-off.

The second goal, understandably, damaged Huddersfield's belief although Billing's powerful shot forced Romero into his first action for some time after 72 minutes and Steve Mounie just missed the target with an 89th minute bicycle kick. "But now this is really important game for Sevilla, for the club, for our fans, and it would be great for us to make it to the quarter-finals".

'He came to us in pre-season and then we realised that with Andreas Pereira going to Valencia, we decided not to buy another player because we had Scott McTominay ready to step up.

But this is when the manager's decisions will define United's season: Make the wrong ones and Mourinho and his team could face a long, drawn-out end to the campaign.
