Champions League: De Gea saves Manchester United against Sevilla

De Gea, although, expressed his delight to make an important save during the game, he also admitted that Vincenzo Montella's side deserved more.

No one could believe the ball wasn't in the back of the United net - especially not Muriel, who gave de Gea a pat on the back for his brilliance.

Though Sevilla outshot United-and troubled the excellent David De Gea on several occasions-many of their efforts were relatively harmless strikes from distance.

And despite having 20 shots inside 65 minutes, United didn't concede even once, thanks to the brilliance of De Gea.

"I lament that missed chance", Muriel said.

The France worldwide was surprisingly dropped for Manchester United's Champions League clash with Sevilla on Wednesday evening, although his exile lasted just 17 minutes due to Ander Herrera's injury. "I'm happy for that". To keep a clean sheet in this match, de Gea would have to work for it.

"I think the only moment where we felt relieved was in the last couple of minutes in the first half where (we had) a couple of mistakes in possession and they had a couple of good situations with two David great saves", Mourinho said.

However, it was obviously not seen the same way by the public. "I love this country and honestly tried my best", Fergie told TMZ . Fergie's interesting rendition of the national anthem prior to the NBA's All-Star Game was met with a lot of different reactions.

"At Old Trafford if we draw with goals we are out, if we win by any result we are through".

Sevilla, however, have lost every away game to Spain's top four this season and during last year's Champions League campaign were eliminated by Leicester City when they lost the second leg away 2-0 after a 2-1 success at home.

Leaving him out of the match with Sevilla had detrimental effects on the team's performance, as they only managed six shots in comparison t Sevilla's twenty-five.

Although Romelu Lukaku always looked threatening for United, Sevilla were carrying the weight of the attacking football and created 12 chances before halftime. "But we have to be satisfied because it's still wide open".

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed Ander Herrera has suffered a "bad injury" and criticised the club's medical department for declaring the midfielder fit to face Sevilla.

Manchester United almost nicked an away goal, and a go-ahead goal, in the 83rd minute through Romelu Lukaku, but he was judged to have handled the ball first before beating Rico from close range.
