Peter Schmeichel said Manchester United players should be ‘embarrassed’ that they were held to a draw against Sevilla at Old Trafford.

United were held to a frustrating 2-2 draw against the Andalusian siderecord six-time winners of the Europa League, despite taking a two-goal lead inside the opening 20 minutes. Marcel Sabitzer struck twice for Erik ten Hag’s side in a lightning opening.

But despite their first half display of dominance, United were sluggish after the break and suffered a nightmarish second half. Having already lost Raphael Varane to injury and Bruno Fernandes to a second leg suspension, there were own goals from Tyrell Malacia and Harry Maguire either side of a Lisandro Martinez injury.

The two late own goals turned the tie on its head a week before the second leg in Seville, but United may well be more concerned about a potential long-term injury layoff for Martinez. With Luke ShawAlejandro Garnacho and Marcus Rashford also currently sidelined, boss Erik ten Hag is facing a mini injury crisis ahead of the game.

The club’s former goalkeeper Schmeichel ripped into Ten Hag’s side for how they lost the initiative in the tie, which is now firmly in the balance. The Dane pointed the finger at the club’s players for how they threw away the lead against Sevilla.

“It’s a fair enough result, the way that it developed in the second half,” Schmeichel explained on BBC Radio 5 Live after the match. “The players of Manchester United have missed a very good opportunity here.
