  • Ben Yedder nets brace as Sevilla sinks United

Ben Yedder struck in the 74th and 78th minutes after coming off the bench two minutes earlier to stun the Red Devils 2-1 at Old Trafford, after the first leg ended goalless.

Jose Mourinho turned to Pogba to influence the game at a crucial stage but the France worldwide was arguably United's worst performer and he gave the ball away a number of times in good areas.

Neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona sidelined their attacking players to stifle N'Zonzi when facing Sevilla but Fellaini's selection was purely a result of the presence of the former Blackburn and Stoke player.

Manchester United fans had just two days to savour their win over arch-rivals Liverpool before Spain's Sevilla brought them back down to earth, eliminating them from the Champions League on Tuesday. Hopefully, I can get some game time and I am still enjoying training.

In a game that was fraught with missed chances, a second-half brace by substitute Wissam Ben Yedder was enough to send the Spanish side into the last eight of the competition.

"We'll be playing 100 per cent to try and achieve that".

Mourinho's side showed none of the intensity displayed in the weekend defeat of Liverpool, Marouane Fellaini mustering the only noteworthy shot in a first half that the visitors edged.

James Gomez, Amnesty International's director for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, said the UN's new findings "sadly echo our own". A recent report in The Irrawaddy claimed that at least 90 percent of the state's Rohingya population have fled.

United continued to be sloppy on the ball, Pogba curling a 72nd-minute effort narrowly wide, but it was a Sevilla substitute who came up with the opener. "When they scored the first goal the game was completely different".

Bailly's superbly-timed challenge denied Correa in the box, then Rico had to make a smart save down to his right to turn a snapshot from Jesse Lingard around the post.

"United were just too cautious".

Manchester United captain Michael Carrick has announced he will hang up his boots at the end of the current campaign after 12 trophy-laden seasons at Old Trafford.

"And we're not the only team that invests money".

Ever Banega's corner was flicked on for Ben Yedder to get away a header that De Gea tipped on to the bar, only for it to agonisingly curl over the line.

But it was to little avail as United have now failed to reach the quarter-finals for four straight years.
