Yet, it remains to be seen whether the French midfielder even starts at the Sanchez Pizjuan for the first leg of the last-16 tie as much due to his form as his fitness.

However, the midfielder was reported to have trained on Sunday and was again involved with the rest of the team as they completed final preparations to face the Spanish side in Wednesday's away first leg.

"I never thought I would win it with Porto or Inter before reaching the quarter-finals". Sevilla, both under Berizzo and his replacement Vincenzo Montella, have a flexibility in midfield, but essentially have a similar triangle with Ever Banega (or Guido Pizarro, who has stepped in since Banega suffered a thigh injury) as a deep-lying playmaker and Nolito or Franco Vazquez as the Number 10, with Steven N'zonzi playing the restrained shuttling role in a far more responsible manner than Pogba has of late.

Meanwhile, Mourinho indicated Eric Bailly could play against Huddersfield after three months out with an ankle injury.

"I don't think it's fair to speak about the responsibilities of a player", Mourinho added.

"United were always our great rivals when I was at City, and we played some really important games against them".

Sevilla won the Europa League three years running between 2014 and 2016, but they have frequently struggled with the step up - a defeat to Leicester City last season was the third time they had lost at this stage of the Champions League in the last decade.

The former AC Milan coach will be testing himself against Mourinho in just his second Champions League game as a coach.

"I think it happens with every team when the best players, the most crucial players, for some reason are not performing". We'll need to be ready mentally and physically.

Matic, speaking to Manchester United's official website ahead of the first competitive meeting between the two clubs, said: 'They have a couple of players who have already played in the Premier League and for sure that is going to be better for them.
