    No time like Zi present

    Manchester United fans are buzzing after Zidane Iqbal was spotted at Old Trafford ahead of the Sevilla clash.

    Some supporters have been calling on Erik ten Hag to give the yougnster a chance and it appears they have got their wish.

    Iqbal was spotted on his way into Old Trafford ahead of the Europa League quarter-final tie.

    Incredible Ivan

    For Sevilla, Ivan Rakitic will be instrumental in orchestrating Sevilla's passage into the next round.

    While the 35-year-old doesn't score many, he is more than capable of dictating the tempo and play of the game, as well as conjuring up a chance from nothing.

    The magic of Martial

    Another man who fans will be hoping can strut his stuff tonight is Anthony Martial as the Frenchman is seemingly getting back to his best.

    Martial came on against Everton before bagging the all-important second goal for United and Erik ten Hag has backed him to step up.

    He is ready to start a game – against Everton he was ready to start

    The stats are telling you that the moment he is on the pitch the time he needs for a goal is really less [not much].

    I refer to the [home[ games against Man City, against Liverpool: when he's in the team, we play our best football and have our best results. I see how he contributes.

    Brilliant Bruno 

    With no Marcus Rashford in the team, Bruno Fernandes will need to step up and guide his side to victory tonight.

    Fernandes is the club's second-highest goalscorer this season with ten and has 12 assists to his name.

    Will Marcus Rashford play tonight?

    Manchester United have revealed that Rashford will NOT be available for the huge clash against Sevilla.

    Rashford went for a scan on Tuesday so that the club doctors could assess whether he'll be fit to play against Sevilla.

    And earlier reports suggested that Erik ten Hag will not risk playing his red-hot forward with so much to riding on the rest of the campaign which has now been confirmed.

    Furthermore, Rashford it set to be out for a 'few' games but the England international will be back for the run-in.
