Gary Neville has warned Manchester United that their real test will come on Tuesday night after their 2-1 win over Liverpool FC on Saturday.

Marcus Rashford struck twice in the first half at Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho’s men claimed an important victory over their bitter local rivals in the Premier League clash.

Manchester United, though, now switch their attentions towards their crunch Champions League showdown against Sevilla in the last 16 of Europe’s elite club competition on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils head into the game on the back of their goalless draw with the Spanish side in the first leg in Spain last month.

And former Manchester United defender Neville has talked up the importance of that game as Mourinho’s side look to try and reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Saturday’s game, Neville said: “Finishing second is important if you can’t finish first.

“It can’t be a good season if Manchester United are finishing second but they have to try and push Manchester City and get as close as possible.

“It’s been a good week for Manchester United but the biggest game is still to come on Tuesday.”

Manchester United are in second place in the Premier League table as they look to at least finish in the top four this season after their disappointing sixth placed finish last term.

The Red Devils will also look to try and book their place in the FA Cup semi-finals by beating Brighton at Old Trafford next Saturday.
