Sevilla came from behind to wreck Manchester United hopes of ending the season with silverware as they edged a hard-fought Europa League semi-final in Cologne.

Man United long season came to a bitter disappointing conclusion as they missed out on the opportunity to lift their first trophy since winning a tournament under Mourinho more than three years ago.

Despite taking the lead when Bruno Fernandes scored their 22nd penalty, Sevilla came from behind to manage a 2-1 triumph and secure their place in the finals.

Sevilla equalized before the interval when forward Suso swept a finish past David de Gea at the far post. United’s fate was sealed when they missed a succession of chances in the second half. Keeper Yassine Bounou emerged as the hero, denying Anthony Martial several times.

Sevilla, who saw off Wolves in the quarter-final, secured their place in the final when Luuk de Jong swept home a cross from Jesus Navas with 12 minutes left. United was punished for poor defending which led to recriminations as Fernandes confronted Lindelof in the aftermath.

Moreover, the Red Devils have themselves to blame for a lack of killer instinct in front of goal. Meanwhile, Solskjaer suffers from his decision to wait until late on before introducing a raft of chances more in hope than expectation.

Solskjaer’s season end respectably with a third-place finish in the Premier League. However, their weaknesses have been exposed by the loss to Manchester City in the EFL Cup semi-final, Chelsea in the FA Cup, and now the defeat by Sevilla. This will in no doubt strengthen Solskjaer’s hand as he demands high-class additions or when the pressure was on in the big cup games this season, they failed to deliver.
