Manchester United have been knocked out of the Champions League at Old Trafford by Sevilla, with a 2-1 victory coming from the Spanish side  in a match that saw Ben Yedder score twice to ensure his side emerged victorious.

With his first touches on the ball as a substitute Yedder broke the goal-drought that started from the first-leg and scored. Then he scored a second three minutes later, but loss  an opportunity to complete a hat-trick and take the match-ball home when he came one-on-one with De Gea.

Sevilla showed determination and character even as visitors, becoming the first team after Manchester City to beat Manchester United by 2-1 at Old Trafford since Jose Mourinho took over the club last season.

A goalless first-leg in Spain was what Sevilla capitalized on, but United who failed to put up an impressive attack paid dearly for not scoring an away goal in the first-leg.

Manchester United join Tottenham to exit the tournament after both sides suffered a 1-2 home defeats, while Manchester City and Liverpool both progressed to the quarter-final stage, with Chelsea hoping to join if they edge Barcelona at Camp Nou.
