Sevilla ousts Man United from Champions League with 2-1 win

Gerrard Banter with Ferdinand

Lukaku grabbed a late consolation for United but the hosts could not find a dramatic late fightback to move into the last eight of the competition.

Rashford played the full 90 minutes but was unable to build on his impressive showing in the 2-1 victory over Liverpool at the weekend. At the same time, I do understand why Mourinho started Matic and Fellaini together to impose a physical presence but starting the Belgium player who has been injured for the past few months with a knee problem in the biggest match of the season is definitely wrong.

Jose Mourinho's side were never amongst the favourites in the competition in any event, but a decent run this year was meant to assuage the masses that they were on the right track to getting back to where they belong.

Meanwhile, United legend Rio Ferdinand has slammed his old side for their Sevilla nightmare.

"When a team win, everyone wins, but when a team loses, the coach loses", he said after the game, as quoted by Marca.

They were the better side in Spain, and, importantly, kept the Red Devils scoreless. As Manchester United fans sifted through the debris of their lacklustre team's surprise Champions League last 16 exit at Old Trafford yesterday, Seville was a picture of joy. "Well, you know, some tears were flowing with some players, some players were hiding", he said.

"Manchester United have experience in the Champions League, it was a special game for us", said Ben Yedder. "I think we started the game well, but then we let them get a bit of control in the game".

Until Yedder had come on as a substitute, Sevilla was bent on shooting from outside the box unnecessarily and De Gea was more than comfortable. I sit in this chair with Real Madrid - Man Utd out.

However, this did not stop the United boss from insisting that he needs to spend more money in the coming transfer window. You go back to the first game, which ended 0-0, they didn't even try to win or score a goal. We lost and tomorrow is another day and Saturday is another match.

The fact that, across Manchester, rival Man City is playing some of the best soccer ever seen in the English game just puts United's style of play further under scrutiny.

However, Salah is still in contention for the Premier League highest goal scorers' award at the end of the season - with 24 goals, same as Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur.

United's performance was widely criticised in the aftermath with many calling Mourinho's tactics and selection into question.
