English football giants Manchester United on Monday held their training session without midfielders Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera and defenders Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind on the eve of the Champions League game against Sevilla. Man United is set to host Sevilla on Tuesday at Old Trafford stadium in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16, after the first leg ended with a goalless draw, reports Efe.

None of the five players were present in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the English Premier League (EPL), so their presence in the second leg clash appeared to be in doubt. The two midfielders Angel Gomes and Ethan Hamilton were also not included in the training session. Forwards Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial returned to the group workout, having recovered from their injuries.

Ibrahimovic, 36, has not appeared with his side since December 26 after returning from a knee injury that kept him out for months. Martial exercised normally with his teammates after having missed Manchester United's last two wins against Liverpool and Crystal Palace. Manchester United is now second in the EPL standings, while Sevilla holds the fifth position in the La Liga table.
