Man United 1-2 Sevilla – Players Ratings

Manchester United’s run in this season’s Champions League came to an abrupt end tonight, as Jose Mourinho’s lacklustre side slipped to a shocking 2-1 defeat to an very average Sevilla at Old Trafford. In all honesty United got exactly what they deserved after putting in a lethargic performance lacking in any intensity or desire. Let’s see how Mourinho’s men rated …

de Gea 5

Made a couple of decent stops, but should have done better with Ben Yedder’s second.

A Valencia 4

Given a torrid time over both legs by the dangerous Correa.

Bailly 4

Sloppy in possession and lost all tactical discipline in the second period.

Smalling 4

Missed a massive chance at 2-0, and was his usual clumsy self in possession all night.

Young 5

Defended well at times, but did little going forward, although to be fair he may well have been under orders not to cross the half way line.

Fellaini 4

Not his fault he lacks mobility and the team resort to long ball tactics when he’s in the team, but looked rusty on his first start in four months.

Matic 5

Couldn’t get to grips with Sevilla’s movement in midfield, and seemed to lose his head late in the game just when his team needed him.

Rashford 5

Completely ineffective playing from the right, again not his fault his manager choose to change him from the left were he was so impressive last weekend against Liverpool.

Lingard 5

Started centrally behind Lukaku, but had little or no effect on the game.

Sánchez 3

Shocking. Continues to give away possession and an alarming rate, and is nothing more than a passenger at the moment.

Lukaku 6

Showed some decent flashes of strength and hold up play at times. Ok finish for his sides consolation goal.

Substitutes

Pogba 3

Abysmal after his introduction on the hour mark. Looks completely devoid of confidence, whenever he did actually attempt a forward pass, it ended up nowhere near a team-mate.

Mata 5

A couple of decent touches, although it was all a little too late.

Martial 4

Barely looked interested after his introduction.
