Manchester United could be without FIVE key players for next week’s Europa League match against Sevilla, with fans concerned about their season.
Man United were cruising to a victory in their quarter-final first-leg clash at Old Trafford until Sevilla’s unlikely comeback.
Not one but TWO own-goals saw the Red Devils lose their lead, with Harry Maguire scoring in his own net deep into stoppage time.
The tie is now in the balance ahead of the return leg in Spain, but Man United fans are fearful of the game considering the potential absentees.
Bruno Fernandes is definitely ruled out as he’s suspended after picking up a yellow card for a dubious handball call.
Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford, who both sat out of Thursday’s game, could also still be sidelined.
And Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez, who both were forced off against Sevilla, appear unlikely to feature.
So, Erik ten Hag could be without Fernandes, Shaw, Rashford, Varane and Martinez for the second-leg at Sevilla.
– Rashford injured
– Martinez injured
– Varane injured
– Fernandes suspended
– Give up 2-0 lead at home

Needless to say, Man United fans are worried about how the rest of the season is shaping up following the slew of injures.
One Twitter user wrote: “Our seasons is done, it’s been a great ride but we’re getting smacked against Nottingham Forrest as well as Sevilla next week. All because of the injuries and all the games we’ve played.”
A second tweeted: “Bar Fernandes, we could be without them for a while.”
A third added: “We are done. Not going through against Sevilla and we are lucky if we can hang on to 4th in the league. Pathetic.”
A fourth said: “Full squad rotation for the second leg. bin off Europa. focus on top 4.”
Another commented: “Yeah top 4 and Europa done this season.”
Man United, who currently occupy fourth spot in the Premier League table, resume their league campaign on Sunday when they travel to Nottingham Forest.
