A great performance by Manchester United’s De Gea deprived Sevilla of a first leg advantage. The Spanish international keeper in particular made spectacular saves from headers by N’Zonzi and Muriel shortly before the break, and also kept out Correa, Lenglet and others at other points in the game. Lukaku had a goal disallowed for a previous hand ball, and Rashford fired a couple of efforts wide later on, but Mourinho’s side came out unscathed, and must now be favourites for the return leg in Old Trafford.
