              Premier League Sunday Round-up

When asked if he expected Mourinho to play for a point despite the fact that United will be at home, Lovren said: "I think so".

"We don't have to win three, four, five, we have to win 1-0, 2-1, 5-4, 8-7... not to win would be a disappointment", he said.

The 36-year-old is the longest-serving player at the club, having joined from Tottenham in 2006 and gone on to win the Champions League and five Premier League titles, among many other trophies.

"We have confidence, we know it will be tough but we are ready". There were, however, wins against both Malaga and Athletic Bilbao in between that sandiwch of defeats.

Marcus Rashford rose to the occasion in his first Premier League start since Boxing Day, scoring twice against Liverpool.

Jose Mourinho had already used his three substitutions by that stage and responded by asking Lukaku - who described himself as the United boss' "sergeant on the field" this week - to drop in as an extra central defender.

"We are reaching an important time in the season, the key moment, and the team needs total concentration on the pitch to achieve our goals".

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. "I would sign right now to draw 1-1 at Manchester". But it was different at Selhurst and that propelled Jose Mourinho's side to a 2-1 win against Liverpool on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Sevilla have been more inconsistent in recent weeks.

"I am anxious. United are a strong, physical side and I am expecting the same as in the first leg".

United's next two outings will see them turn their attention to knockout football, with a midweek showdown with Sevilla in the Champions League set to be followed by an FA Cup quarter-final clash with Brighton.

"If we go through to the quarter-final draw, doesn't matter the opponent, will always be one of the big names in European football but we will try".
