Manchester United v Sevilla Preview

It’s the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals as the high flying Manchester United welcome the record six time Europa League winners Sevilla at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

Having already won the EFL cup and entered the FA cup semi-finals, Manchester United will be looking to add all three trophies in their cabinet ahead of Sevilla’s visit to Old Trafford. After an underwhelming start to the season, Erik Ten Hag has gotten his troops marching on as they currently sit top four in the Premier League table. However, the former Ajax manager would be vary of Newcastle and Tottenham breathing down their neck and will be looking to win the Europa League to claim automatic qualification for next year’s UEFA Champions League. The hosts however, will be without the services of their two main men – Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw who are ruled out with injuries. Fatigue may creep into the Red Devils’ side, with Ten Hag’s men still present in all competitions and having and hectic schedule. However, having already defeated two Spanish sides Barcelona and Real Betis to enter the quarters, the English side will be confident of a positive result against the six time champions.

Meanwhile, United’s opponents Sevilla have struggled for form and have had a very disappointing campaign this time around. Having finished fourth in each of their last three LaLiga campaigns, the Los Nervionenses now sit 19 points behind fourth placed Real Sociedad. Their European endeavors have also been far from convincing, after exiting from the Champions League group stage and their Europa performances being under par despite the victories. The loss of Unai Emery to Aston Villa earlier this season hasn’t helped the cause as well. Recovery time is something that will favor Jose Luis Mendilibar’s men as they played their last game on Friday. Goals may be hard to come by for the Spanish side considering Manchester United’s defensive form and Casemiro’s return in the team – they’ll thus be reliant on their talisman En-Nesyri to provide the goods, who has 10 goals in all competitions this season.
