WATCH: Sevilla v Manchester United preview

Manchester United were 2-0 up and in pole position in their Europa League tie with Sevilla, but you can never write the Europa League specialists off...

The visitors were off the pace and could've been put to the sword, but the 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2020 winners found a way to claw their way back into the tie with two late goals - albeit both turned in by Manchester United defenders - and suddenly it's game on heading into the second leg.

Manchester United will be without Bruno Fernandes after his farcical booking for handball, while Lisandro Martinez was ruled out for the season, picking up an injury in the first leg. Raphael Varane was also withdrawn through injury, forcing Erik ten Hag into a more makeshift back four, and with an FA Cup semi-final at the weekend, will the Dutchman have one eye on their trip to Wembley? 

Sevilla have had their own share of domestic distractions, surprisingly spending time in the La Liga bottom three between October and January, prompting the dismissals of both Julen Lopetegui and then Jorge Sampaoli, but with seven points from their last three games, Jose Luis Mendilibar has almost certainly secured their top-flight status for next season, and they can throw 100% into Thursday night's clash.

Kelly Somers, Sam Matterface, Graham Hunter and Steve Freeth have previewed the second leg.
