Ukrainian champions Shakhtar did well to beat Roma 2-1 in the first leg as they had only just returned to action from a winter break, with their Brazilian striker Fred boosting his reputation with a the goal that handed his side an advantage.

Manchester City and Liverpool both secured big away wins to put their respective ties to bed with 90 minutes still to play, yet United approached a trip to the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan with a more safety-first style and secured just a 0-0 draw.

Even if Paul Pogba was fit I don't think he would get in the United team, as he has suffered from the confusion that Alexis Sanchez's arrival has brought to the team. I know it is very hard to go through.

Roma's dip in form since mid-December has cast a cloud over the future of coach Eusebio Di Francesco, with Champions League progress crucial if he is to lift the pressure building on him.

"Can he play against Sevilla?".

"We got ourselves in a sticky situation, in terms of previous results, and we need to get ourselves out of it", Cahill added. "I am not frustrated about the first leg".


"But anything can happen, so let's see what happens tomorrow".

I'd back Rashford at Sky Bet's 14/1 for another double but I don't know whether he's going to play.

"They're on a roll, but we hope to interrupt United's good run".

It is now possible that will also miss a crucial European fixture on Tuesday, with Jose Mourinho in the process of finalising his plans for the second leg of a last-16 showdown with Sevilla.

Here FP details some of the talking points ahead of Tuesday night's game.

"Pogba did train after you left", Mourinho told reporters at his pre-match press conference. "We're playing against a team that didn't lose against Liverpool home and away, scored goals against Liverpool, drew against Liverpool - and they [Liverpool] are a very good team, so it says Sevilla are a really good team". "The referee's made that decision without a reaction from the Chelsea players, so it's disappointing, but we have to go again".
