I don’t think we are one of the best teams in the competition. But I think when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen. I think when you are in the last 16, it looks really, really far. But when a team gets in the last eight, you start smelling semi-finals and I think when a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is, of course, you are among the best.

I think we’re playing against a team that didn’t lose against Liverpool home and away – scored goals in Liverpool and drew the match in Liverpool and when I say Liverpool, it’s an example of a very good team and an example of an important stadium with big tradition. When I say Liverpool, it is just to say that Sevilla is a really good team and the result of the first leg is a result that leaves everything open.

I don’t feel that we have any advantage in this moment. We are going to try to prove that we are better [than the first leg] and to try to win the match tomorrow. But the reality in this moment is that we have no advantage at all.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho

We know this is a difficult venue and they are a team with a lot of clout. We know we have to give everything and hope the key moments go our way.

We have to play the situations. There will be moments we have to defend, and moments where we have to attack – and moments to slow the game down and moments to speed it up.
Sevilla coach Vincenzo MontellaComing off the back of three successive wins, Manchester United will be confident of progressing to the last eight and Telegraph Sport, too, is confident they will join Liverpool and Manchester City in Friday’s quarter-final draw.
