  • Manchester United vs FC Rostov Preview Will a better pitch aid a better result

Juan Mata scored the only goal as United recorded an underwhelming 1-0 victory over FC Rostov to reach the Europa League quarter-finals.

Pogba, who turned 24 on Wednesday, hobbled off with a hamstring injury early in the second half of Thursday's 1-0 win, which completed a 2-1 aggregate last 16 success.

And Mourinho has called for the Premier League to help protect English clubs as they challenge in Europe's top cup competitions.

"It's very important - it could be one more trophy and it means we play Champions League".

And he says it will be impossible for his side to enjoy the same level of unprecedented success as they did with Alex Ferguson at the helm, the Scot winning 13 Premier League titles during his 26 years in charge.

Forwards Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial are both in severe match fitness doubt, and likely won't play. I don't ask for me, I ask for everyone. It seems to be a real possibility - but they're going to need to convert more of the dozens of crosses they put in, and make more of the ridiculously dominant possession figures. Every country, they try to give support to teams in European football, but here it's hard.

"It's just a little bit of common sense, if they want, or if they are happy we have one English club in the Europa League and one English club in the Champions League".

Manchester United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has said that he came to the Premier League for a new challenge, rather than taking the money on offer in the Chinese Super League. Of course, I didn't understand the choice but, you know, he's the boss and he made the choice so I have to accept that. "But I think that [the Premier League] is good enough to have more teams in the Champions League and the Europa League".

The Riverside Stadium showdown kicks off at 12:00 (GMT) on Sunday, with TV coverage in the United Kingdom getting underway at 11:00 (GMT) on BT Sport 1.

"This is a very hard draw", he said. He was feeling something in the first half and in the second half he immediately felt he couldn't carry on. He is another who has been playing in every game.

"He told me if any of our players gets injured, the insurance paid". United have only let in four goals in their last seven away games.

"Next year? The situation is I've signed here for a year with an option for another year".



Zlatan Ibrahimovic 'happy' at Man Utd but not ruling out Napoli
Indeed, Ibrahimovic has led the line with authority for the Red Devils, using his ability to mesh physicality and poise to dominate Premier League defences.
