Manchester United v Sevilla – Story of the match

Manchester United’s Champions League dreams are over after being rocked by Sevilla, with substitute Wissam Ben Yedder’s brace securing a famous win against Jose Mourinho’s lacklustre side.

Last month David De Gea saved the Red Devils’ blushes as they escaped Andalusia with a goalless draw, but Vincenzo Montella’s men did not allow another under-cooked display to go unpunished.

An abject United performance got the outcome it deserved as Sevilla kicked on after a solid first-half display, with Ben Yedder coming off the bench to secure a 2-1 win and render Romelu Lukaku’s late goal pointless as the Spaniards progressed from the last-16 at the fourth time of asking.
