Paul Pogba came on as a first-half substitute against Sevilla

Rio Ferdinand tells Manchester United players how to deal with Paul Pogba

And yet here we are all the same, being treated over two puzzling days in Seville to a bizarre and divisive pre-match power-play. Mourinho asked in response to a question about the youngster.

Manchester United's Champions League hopes remain alive after labouring to a 0-0 draw away to Sevilla.

Jose Mourinho was forced to make a substitution on the 17th minute as Ander Herrera suffered an injury and was immediately replaced by Paul Pogba.

The second-half once again saw Sevilla dominating as the Spanish side looked to take advantage of their home leg. However, the match began to descend into an exceptionally fragmented contest.

The French international, and former most expensive player in the world, has seen his performances been on the end heavy criticism in recent week, and has seen his formerly secure position in the starting eleven traded for a place among the club's subs.

Sandro Ramirez N/A - Was brought on for Muriel in the final five minutes but wouldn't warrant a rating anyway wearing the No99 shirt. That night, in December 2011, Real ran out 6-2 winners, but there was no danger whatsoever of that happening tonight. "And that's the reason why he is what he is".

DF Chris Smalling, 5 - Positioning was worryingly awry in the first half, though that improved in the second.

Muriel summed up Sevilla's frustrations just before the hour mark, dragging a left-footed effort wide of the right-hand post.

Manchester United now hold the advantage in the tie with the return to come at Old Trafford.

Pogba was then handed his chance of a reprieve, replacing the stricken Herrera, and United appeared to become more stable in midfield as a result. The Basque midfielder had tried a backheel to Antonio Valencia in the Sevilla box.

The Reds had the ball in the back of the net, too, on 83 minutes, when Lukaku spun his marker inside the penalty area and shot past goalkeeper Sergio Rico, seemingly completing a perfect smash-and-grab outing, until the referee blew his whistle for an apparent handball from the Belgian striker. "The reflexes, the speed is phenomenal".

"Ever Banega and Nolito, are the two additions to the squad chosen to host Manchester United in the last-16 of Champions League". He tried to help his side out defensively, he found himself on the receiving end of a studs first lunge from Steven N'Zonzi.

"Apart from that I was never relieved".

ALEXIS SANCHEZ is in desperate need of goals at Manchester United.

With United hosting Chelsea at the weekend, Herrera's setback could cause the manager a problem.

It is, of course, important not to be drawn too deeply into another Mourinho psychodrama.
