PAUL POGBA HAS been left out of the Man United starting XI for this evening’s Champions League first-leg last-16 clash against Sevilla.

The France international missed the win over Huddersfield last weekend due to illness, and only makes the bench for tonight’s match.

The news is unlikely to dampen recent speculation of a falling out between Pogba and United boss Jose Mourinho.

The main beneficiary of the French midfielder’s absence is Scott McTominay, with the 21-year-old handed a surprise start.

Meanwhile, Alexis Sanchez makes his first Champions League appearance for the Red Devils, while Antonio Valencia captains the side.
