Manchester United fans furious with performance vs Sevilla in the Champions League

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United fans were not pleased at all with their team’s performance vs Sevilla in the Champions League knockout stages.

Jose Mourinho‘s men were a completely different side to the one that tore apart Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday.

United were sloppy and slow for much of the match, allowing the Spanish side to grow in confidence as the game continued to draw on.

With the first leg having ended 0-0, Mourinho’s players needed to ensure they don’t concede and outscore their opponents at Old Trafford.

Instead, the Red Devils found themselves a goal down after the first half and were forced to up the tempo against a team who could afford to sit back.



To make matters worse, they then conceded once more to really rub salt in the players’ wounds as supporters failed to grasp what was happening in front of their eyes.

Jose attempted to change things up by making certain substitutions but the truth is that he never truly addressed Manchester United’s tactical problems.

Nemanja Matic and Marouane Fellaini were the pair in midfield with the latter player seemingly given the freedom to alternate with the more attacking Jesse Lingard.

Whatever the instructions were, United often left the Serbian isolated in midfield, with him often being unable to protect the defence as well as do his usual role.

Fellaini and Lingard failed to help him time and time again, thankfully the La Liga side couldn’t initially take advantage of it.

However the introduction of a more forward thinking attacker by Sevilla saw them take advantage of Matic’s isolation.
