Ray Wilkins should be put down. Love the bloke but my word he spouts shite

Wilkins is chatting shit obviously but to be honest, I wasn't impressed with Sevilla in their two games against us in the groups. We should have won both games comfortably and it was our own fault that we didn't. I expect Man Utd to win the tie reasonably comfortably.

Navas at RB? 

he's played much deeper at Sevilla this season. Not sure why as he's always struck me as an attacking player (with a shite end product, mind). But it's working to an extent for Sevilla so far.

I'd love it if the media could talk about the fucking game rather than dickhead Pogba.

His end product was great in his best days at Sevilla, although seemed to dimmish in his last season for them and when he played for City. Before that though he was one of the world's best traditional wingers and was a very good crosser of the ball, something which seemed to vanish for some reason.

Because traditional wingers are now turned into wingbacks. 

Imagine watching Beckham at wingback

Didn't he suffer from homesickness at one point and it led to some kind of mental breakdown as well? I could be  confusing him with someone else though.

All the danger coming from Sevilla's left side, yet they haven't made the most of the opportunities

a save for the cameras from De Gea off a Nzonzi header. 

A lot of the attacks coming down the left flank for Sevilla. Joaquin Correa heavily involved.

and another superb save from De Gea on the stroke of half-time. Muriel's header saved at point blank range.

Great half but absolutely gutted Sevilla didn't score. 

Clearly the better team, but need to improve on their corners and finishing. This game could be 2-3 Sevilla up...

De Gea is the MOTM thus far.

Can't help but feel Sevilla will pay for not having got a goal already. They should be 2 up here.

Just another day at the office for De Gea, wish there is a way to see how many points he won for United all by himself in the last few years in the league. Utd would have been probably never finished below 5th without him in the league table in the last few seasons, so important for them.

De Gea's their best player by a bit, I'd say.

100%. Wouldn't even say by a bit, either. 

Streets ahead of the rest of them.

It pains to say it but there isn't a single keeper on the planet as good as De Gea, He's won so many games for United over the last few years.

True. It's very seldom you see a keeper that wins so many points for a club in the league and keeps them in matches in knockout competitions, regardless of how poorly the shite in front of him are playing. De Gea's won them so many games - it's hard to think of another keeper coming close. Buffon in his prime or Casillas maybe?

But I think Buffon and De Gea are the two best keepers I've ever seen.
