"It is clear Sevilla will be confronted with the most in-form Manchester United of the season", Balague wrote in his Sky Sports column.

The mood in the camp is superb with two eagerly anticipated cup games at Old Trafford this week, with a quarter-final at home to Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday coming after this. It would take an epic collapse and a epic form from the teams behind them to knock United out of the top four.

In the end, Tuesday's matchup with Sevilla is a season defining moment.

He repaid his manager's faith with a brace as the Red Devils ran out narrow 2-1 winners, but Crooks feels Rashford and teammate Jesse Lingard are best served away from Mourinho, given his record of nurturing players and considering England need the pair to be playing on a regular basis.

Some onlookers later questioned the wisdom of such an approach though, with Jose Mourinho having chose to take his chances back in Manchester despite the knowledge that a score draw would see United dumped out of the competition at the round of 16 stage.

The hard-won, but fragile optimism can easily be punctured.

"They try to win matches in an honest way, by outpassing and outscoring opponents and what we saw yesterday was a team winning via an alternative route".

"The most important thing is sticking together as a squad".

During its vacation and shift to another, happier, "family-friendly" network, American Idol has not lost that mean streak. They are not as pointed as they could be in offering criticism, which in turns takes some of the shine off their praise.

However, Sevilla's recent form against their closest rivals in La Liga is a concern, and they have it all to do the get the better of a Red Devils side at Old Trafford.

"If Pogba's going forward and Sanchez is dropping, you can nearly throw a blanket over them - and that will be music to the ears of opponents".

On Saturday against Liverpool, it was impressive. After a goalless first-leg in Andalucia three weeks ago, it's victor takes all at the Theatre of Dreams as the Reds look to reach the last eight of Europe's elite competition for the first time since 2014.

"Not yet, but when a team reaches the last eight anything is possible", he said. They are yet to win a single away game at this stage (D1 L2).

"Right now, I'm probably not learning the most on the pitch", said the former academy graduate, who hopes to play a key role for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"So we passed and crossed a few balls that were not too good but we found our way back on track minute by minute and second half we chased the game really".

Jose Mourinho gives a priceless assessment of Man United's "complete performance" versus Liverpool and follows up with a message to his critics.
