Phil Jones is also still unavailable and Mourinho says the centre-back won't be ready for action before the global break so it looks like he'll miss the upcoming England friendlies.
The two Premier League sides both head into their second legs level but only United are favourites to come through their tie with Sevilla, while Antonio Conte's men face the daunting prospect of visiting Camp Nou to take on Barcelona.
They might be a distant second to City but the 56 goals scored in 30 games is already more than they netted in the whole of last season.
United emerged victorious with two goals from Marcus Rashford taking care of business inside 24 minutes, whereas the Rojiblancos were left deflated by a Rodrigo Moreno double, the first of which had them chasing the game from the 24th minute onwards.
Any goals surrendered to Sevilla on Tuesday could prove fatal to United's Champions League future.
And Mourinho has been consistent in his assertion all along that this competition doesn't begin in earnest until April, so we shouldn't be too quick to judge where United belong in the overall scheme of things. Asked if United have the potential to go all the way this season, Mourinho was cautious.
"I say Liverpool because they are an example of a very good team".
"It's a big club with big players and for players like me and Marcus it's going to be tough to start every game but once you are on the pitch you have got to make an impact and maybe next game you will be playing".
Mourinho went with a 4-2-3-1 formation, which shifted to a 4-4-2 when United did not have possession.
Rashford took just 25 minutes to show what Sanchez hasn't been delivering by scoring twice, doubling the Chilean's tally in a United shirt.

There didn't seem to be any obvious abuse of the manager's blue-eyed boy, who also had a good game, though composure was not a common emotion among home fans during the last few minutes as Liverpool pushed for an equaliser.
United moved to 65 points and five points clear of fourth-placed Liverpool with the victory. It was about time.
