Anthony Martial fit for Sevilla clash

Anthony Martial is fit and available for Manchester United's Champions League round of 16, second-leg game at home to Sevilla, manager Jose Mourinho said on Monday.

The French forward missed last week's Premier League victories over Crystal Palace and Liverpool but trained on Monday ahead of the visit of the Spanish club on Tuesday.

Midfielder Paul Pogba remains a doubt, however, as United try to capitalise on the 0-0 draw in the first leg in Spain.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic also trained with the squad although Mourinho did not offer any clues as to whether the Swedish striker might be involved against Sevilla.

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.

That is a marked contrast to last season when they finished sixth and had to win the Europa League to earn a place back in the continent's elite club competition.

Asked if United have the potential to go all the way this season, Mourinho was cautious.
