Mourinho: Anything is possible if United reach Champions League quarters

Phil Jones is also still unavailable and Mourinho says the centre-back won't be ready for action before the global break so it looks like he'll miss the upcoming England friendlies.

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are running away with the Premier League title and Nicol has no complaints about the Spaniard being considered top of the pops.

The Serbian global has been in great form in Italy this season, scoring 11 goals and assisting a further seven strikes in 37 games. The accusation was levelled after a 0-0 draw at Liverpool in October but, while the game was frustrating to watch and stalled momentum, a goalless draw at Anfield was a not a bad result.

"The league position looks very strong, so strong that United can focus on the cup competitions starting with Sevilla".

Cameras have since shown what Mourinho was writing, and it's literally a prediction of United's opening goal.

United, who were playing their first Champions League knockout game in four years, have won 15 of their 18 home games so far this season.

United are in a good run of form this season, and they seem to be getting hotter at the ideal time. "You're not going to get that from McTominay, but you can see why Mourinho likes a player that". The 2-1 victory over arch rivals Liverpool was a Mourinho master class in how to negate the opposition and collect the points.

Juan Mata played predominantly on the right, but was also on the left at times, and could feel satisfied with his performance as he posed for pictures with fans in his Manchester restaurant on Saturday night.

And I'm confident, I think Marcus would agree with me, that we're very comfortable with Mitch taking that shot in that situation. It was not to be however, as a Cartwright floater from the left elbow clanked harmlessly up off the rim and fell to the court.

It has been multiple years since Manchester United advanced into the knockout stage.

Antony Martial has suffered as well but it is their biggest young talent, Marcus Rashford, who has suffered the most.

Mourinho has a dilemma whether to play Pogba, even if fit, after his midfield pairing of Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay impressed against Liverpool. Indeed, the manager may not have been broken hearted by the injury which ruled him out of the Liverpool game.

Liverpool were handed a lifeline when Eric Bailly turned the ball into his own net in the second-half, but Mourinho's side held on for the three points to stretch the gap between second and third place to four points. It was about time.

The formidable troika of Mohammad Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino were found wanting against the might of Mourinho, who set up his team in such a way that it negated the high-flying Liverpool side, who had scored a whopping 67 goals in 29 matches, prior to this blockbuster clash at Old Trafford.

Papastathopoulos has been scouted by United and would apparently cost around £20m, while Alderweireld would be a considerably more expensive option, though he's obviously proven in the Premier League.

Bring on the Spaniards by the score, por favor.
