"It is a big opportunity for us, " said the Italian, who will be without former Manchester City wide man Jesus Navas through injury.

Sevilla defender Clement Lenglet has revealed that he and his team are going to give everything to get a result at Old Trafford and move through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

United 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. There were, however, wins against both Malaga and Athletic Bilbao in between that sandiwch of defeats.

Shakhtar coach Paulo Fonseca said: "It's going to be a very hard game because Roma won a group with Chelsea and Atletico Madrid so they are tough to face, and they've won five out of six games recently".

"If I finished the session one minute before it wouldn't have happened". It was the kind of game that United would have dropped points in earlier in the season. "I would sign right now to draw 1-1 at Manchester".

It's been one of the best spells in Manchester United's season in recent weeks.

Mourinho confirmed that Anthony Martial is back in contention after an injury of his own, and that Daley Blind, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones remain absent.

"People forget that it's still possible for us to win two big titles this season - the Champions League and FA Cup". Away in London a week later, at Crystal Palace, a typically frustrating lethargic and complacent performance at Selhurst Park seemed to be set to put United into third. That means United must win.

Manchester United will be targeting a place in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals when they host Sevilla in the second leg of their last-16 tie on Tuesday.

"You get that extra spicy feeling, there's that little bit extra to it and we want to be playing these games".
