Man. United Crashes out of 2018 UEFA Champions League

Manchester United on Tuesday crashed out of the UEFA Champions League after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Sevilla at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

That proved to be the final chance of the opening stanza as the sides went into the break goalless. Sergio Rico was called upon five minutes into the second half as the Sevilla shot-...

Pogba urges misfiring teammate to ‘wake up’

Paul Pogba has called on Manchester United to “wake up” after a third straight draw over the Christmas period saw them slip behind Chelsea in the Premier League table.
