Manchester United entertained Sevilla at Old Trafford earlier tonight as they focused on securing a win in the UEFA Europa League. The Red Devils made a quick start to the game and scored the opening goal in the 14th-minute courtesy of Marcel Sabitzer’s goal. Sabitzer scored again for Man United just seven minutes later as Erik ten Hag’s men went into the half-time break 2-0 up on the scoreline.
The home team were solid for most of the second half. However, Tyrell Malacia scored an unfortunate own goal in the 84th minute before Harry Maguire also netted an own goal in injury time. The Europa League contest finished with the Red Devils being held to a 2-2 draw at the Theatre of Dreams.
