Rio Ferdinand reveals Manchester United's player initially doubted David De Gea

Roma has been having issues meeting the requirements for Financial Fair Play, and a source with knowledge of the situation says those needs will likely force the club to have to sell more players this summer. To aid that bid, Mourinho introduced the pace of Anthony Martial and fit-again Marcus Rashford, who scored a famous winner in Spain during last season's Europa League semi-final first leg at Celta Vigo. "It's him. And just to be clear, the manager picks the team round here".

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

The pre-match debate surrounding Jose Mourinho's decision to drop Paul Pogba took on a new dimension after just 17 minutes when the Frenchman replaced the injured Ander Herrera, though he was unable to flourish as Sevilla dominated.

Sevilla aren't world beaters, they looked like a side sitting fifth in La Liga, suffering from the after effects of a bad run of form.

"The only moment where we felt relieved was in the last couple of moments of the first half when from a couple of our mistakes in possession they had a couple of good situations and De Gea made good saves", said Mourinho. If the one to keep out N'Zonzi was good, the denial of Muriel's header was nothing short of phenomenal. "We defended well. I think they had control of the game, but the result is open".

It is unclear exactly what the injury is at this stage.

Sissoko is seen by some pundits in France as a Deschamps favourite, but the coach denied any bias in his squad selections. Sevilla outshot the Red Devils 25-6, but could not get anything past de Gea. Jesus Navas found space and picked his head up to loft a perfect cross onto the head of the forward who, from six-yards out, powered a header towards the top corner. "These are elite level matches, you have to be concentrated, quick, sharp mentally and physically, then tomorrow we'll have to play in that same way, we have to be alert", Montella said in the press conference ahead of the visit of United. The save was an unbelievable one, but why is anybody surprised by the heroics of the Spaniard anymore?

At his press conference Mourinho had spoken in weird gnomic riddles about Pogba's status and availability, before opening up the back-end of training to the public eye.

"You ask me is it a good result?" Kept the ball fairly well but created little.

It is, of course, important not to be drawn too deeply into another Mourinho psychodrama. United now hold the advantage with the return of the tie to come at Old Trafford.

THE TEAMS Sevilla: Rico, Lenglet, Banega (Pizarro 89), Correa, N'Zonzi, Navaz, Sarabia, Escudero, Muriel (Ramirez 85), Vazquez, Mercado.
