I think that Romelu Lukaku will be on of the key players for tonight's match. Manchester United were so dominant over Liverpool's defensive players because Romelu Lukaku bullied them and he almost won every header against them. Luckily for him they weren't really engaging with Lukaku and trying to provoke him with more physical contact. However, tonight in Champions League against wild spanish side Sevilla, we should see Romelu Lukaku pressing defenders of Sevilla and really being engaged and lured into more fights and more physical contact by them. This is not a league match and it's eliminaton in Champions League. It means a lot to both teams and things could get nasty beween Romelu Lukaku and defenders of Sevilla, that's why Lukaku to get a yellow card is a great bet and there's some value worth investing in.
Last time Lukaku was booked in a match was in league clash against Stoke in 1st month earlier this year, he was also booked last winter against Bournemouth in 12th month. Romelu Lukaku played his last 6 matches for United and he was playing for full ninety minutes. He's the main forward and Mourinho will count on him to be the key for creating space, scoring goals, winning headers and just luring defenders away to set other forwards and wingers free. Sevilla defenders might get angry at how physcially strong Lukaku is and a fight might occur between them.
Romelu also played ninety minutes in the first match at Sevilla but that match was much softer and it was just the first leg. Now it's the final second leg and there's no more chances to repair broken things after this, whatever happens tonight it will stay as the final result. Only Alexis Sanchez was booked in Sevilla, but tonight after what Lukaku did to Liverpool, Sevilla defenders should engage with him and try to provoke him to reply back, which he might. This is surely the biggest match for United until the end of season and he will show more physical aggression.
