Montella expets Sevilla to 'suffer' against Man United at Old Trafford

Montella expets Sevilla to 'suffer' against Man United at Old Trafford

That midfield setup also afforded Mourinho the rare opportunity of playing Marcus Rashford on the left side of Manchester United's attack, something the Portuguese has found hard to do since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez.

Jose Mourinho brought on Paul Pogba for Fellaini on the hour mark as his team searched for a goal.

Substitute Wissam Ben Yedder's rapid-fire double helped Vincenzo Montella's team see off their Premier League rivals after the first leg had finished in a goalless draw in Spain.

Scott McTominay, a calm defensive midfield presence against Liverpool was left out to make way for Marouane Fellaini, who only returned from injury last week and Juan Mata made way for Jesse Lingard.

"They played well in the first half without creating many risky situations".

Man United's Romelu Lukaku (C) vies for the ball against Sevilla players in first leg.

Sevilla starting XI (4-2-3-1): Sergio Rico; Mercado, Kjaer, Lenglet, Escudero (c); N'Zonzi, Banega; Sarabia, Vazquez, Correa; Luis Muriel.

Manchester United have been beaten just once in nine home games against La Liga outfits. Pogba didn't do much better, at one point making a lazy pass that was picked off and almost created a goal for Sevilla. But the Frenchman's injury before the game turned out to be a blessing in disguise for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United.

Mourinho happy with 'controlled' Manchester United performance vs Liverpool
Rashford received a rare start from manager Mourinho as it was only the 14th Premier League start for the forward. Lingard says he and Rashford accept an automatic start is never going to happen at a club the size of United.


Ben Yedder, a former futsal player for France, moved onto eight goals in this season's competition and he missed a chance for a hat trick as United's defence fell apart in the latter stages. "The first goal would always change the direction of the game".

Ben Yedder came off the bench to add another attacking dimension in the 72nd minute and within six minutes had ended the tie, following a fine low strike with an effort that De Gea could not prevent from crossing the line.

The Red Devils made proceedings a bit more interesting in the 84th minute, getting on the board through a corner.

The Andalusian supporters are looking forward to the clash with Man United, pushing aside the memory of three recent unsuccessful attempts to reach the Champions League quarterfinals.
