Head to Head
Their last match ended without a winner, but Sevilla had the ball possession, they’ve also placed more shots on goal compared to Manchester United.
Should this be an indicator of the outcome?
Same as this weekend the injury list of Manchester United is extensive:
Hererra, Blind, Jones, Rojo, Ibrahimovic and Martial all marked as doubtful.
Pogba is also marked as doubtful but in his case this might be due to his recent poor form.
Lindgard will be out due to suspension.
Sevilla will be missing Sebastien Corchia, Jesus Navas and Miguel Layun.
Possible outcome from the Match Preview Manchester United vs Sevilla
It is expected that Mourinho, might make some changes to the squad that beat Liverpool, but why changing the winning combination?
Manchester United has a great form at home, while Sevilla is struggling in the last matches.
If we convert their current form in points per game, Manchester United has won 2.53 PPG in the last 5 games, compared to 1.53 PPG of Sevilla.
We believe that this will be a very difficult match for Manchester United, they will start with same line-up from the weekend, backed-up with refreshed Martial and Pogba.
Their win seems as a only outcome of the match.
This is how the bookmakers think as well, they believe that Manchester United have 62 % chance to score 1.8 goal in this match, as for Sevilla only 0.8 goals in this match.
