Erik ten Hag: Man Utd players were not ready for Europa League quarter-final | 'Sevilla had more desire'

David De Gea and Harry Maguire made bad errors as Man Utd were outplayed at Sevilla; cup treble hopes over after Youssef En-Nesyri double and Loic Bade header clinch Europa League quarter-final tie for Spanish side; Man Utd have FA Cup semi-final with Brighton at Wembley on Sunday
Erik ten Hag slammed the attitude of his Manchester United players after they were beaten 3-0 and 5-2 on aggregate at Sevilla in the Europa League quarter-finals.

Man Utd had blown a 2-0 lead in the final minutes of the first leg at Old Trafford last week and quickly fell behind in the south of Spain after David De Gea and Harry Maguire combined to give the hosts the lead in the tie.

There was a further mistake from De Gea in the second half as Sevilla went on to win convincingly against the lacklustre visitors and afterwards Man Utd head coach Ten Hag was critical of the application he'd seen from his players.

"It's clear, when we make such mistakes, it's very difficult to win a football game," Ten Hag told BT Sport.

"It's obvious [the atmosphere may have had an impact] but it can't be. The fans can expect that we can deal with it. I won't say that's an explanation for it.
