Player Ratings: Sevilla 3-0 Manchester United
Manchester United have lost 3-0 away to Sevilla in the Europa League and have been dumped out of the competition after losing the tie 5-2 on aggregate.
The game saw Manchester capitulate away from home, not for the first time this season and have lost the pathway to another trophy. United were missing players like Varane, Martinez and Bruno Fernandes. Rashford and Shaw were on the bench but also unable to start. The 6-time Europa League winners Sevilla dominated from start to finish and were unlucky not to score more goals.
Here’s a rundown on how the players performed in the game with each player receiving a rating out of 10.
Goalkeeper and Defence
David De Gea: 2
De Gea was simple atrocious, a walking liability. All 3 goals were arguably his fault, making a bad pass to Maguire that resulted in Maguire turning over the ball, failed to tip a looping ball over the bar and for the third goal he tried to sweep and ended up tripping over the ball. A day to forget for the Spainard.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka: 5.5
Wan Bissaka wasn’t the worst player on the pitch but he didn’t add much to the game. An average performance.
Harry Maguire: 3
A poor performance from Maguire, at fault for the first goal, was shaky for the whole game and never looked comfortable on the ball.
Victor Lindelof: 5
An average performance from Lindelof, like Wan-Bissaka he didn’t do much wrong, but he wasn’t great either. Performed better than Maguire but that isn’t saying much.
Diogo Dalot: 5
Dalot slotted in at left back again and wasn’t able to make much impact, was disappointing defensively and didn’t contribute to the attack.
Christian Eriksen: 5
Eriksen found it difficult against Sevilla, routinely lost possession and was a press trigger for the opposition team. A few good passes were made here or there but nothing enough to be substantial
Casemiro’s form since coming back from suspension has been very underwhelming. His dominant presence in midfield was lacking and his poor pass completion didn’t help United with keeping possession.
Marcel Sabitzer: 4
Sabitzer essentially played as a second striker but was unable to make any impact on the game. Unlike the first leg Sabitzer’s attacking presence wasn’t up to form and ultimately United missed the extra body in midfield.
Antony looked like United’s most threatening attacker, the outlet he provided on the left at times spread the play but he often broke up counters back making a late or wrong pass and couldn’t produce a goal contribution
Anthony Martial: 5.5
Martial was dropping deep trying to link up play and help out the struggling midfield but passes were sometimes too short or too slow in being made and he wasn’t able to produce a striker’s performance.
Jadon Sancho: 5
Sancho was anonymous, lack of purpose and intent from his performance meant United posed no threat down his flank, attacks would fizzle out from Sancho, overall, a frustratingly poor showing from the Englishman.
Marcus Rashford: 6
Luke Shaw: 5
Wout Weghorst: 5
Antony Elanga: N/A
