'Everyone spends money' - Mourinho defends Man United transfers after defeat

Matic was also full of praise for his new central midfield partner Scott McTominay

Ben Yedder struck in the 74th and 78th minutes after coming off the bench two minutes earlier to stun the Red Devils 2-1 at Old Trafford, after the first leg ended goalless.

Asked what has to change now to get United into the top-eight teams in Europe, Mourinho retorted: "Everything".

"I told you yesterday that it would be disappointment if we would lose the match", the United boss said.

Marouane Fellaini has silenced his critics during his five years at Manchester United, but when handed his first start since November for a crucial Champions League second-leg tie, it sums up precisely where the team is right now under Mourinho. "I don't want to make a drama out of this defeat".

Porto and Real Madrid both knocked out United at Old Trafford under Mourinho's stewardship and the Portuguese was quick to highlight the club's previous failings after their shock exit.

"We'll be playing 100 per cent to try and achieve that".

His negative tactics were ultimately undone by Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella, whose second-half tactical switch, introducing substitute Ben Yedder for Luis Muriel, prove the decisive moment in the game.

United continued to be sloppy on the ball, Pogba curling a 72nd-minute effort narrowly wide, but it was a Sevilla substitute who came up with the opener.

Romelu Lukaku reduced United's arrears, but it was too little, too late with Mourinho's decision to once again drop Paul Pogba certain to be scrutinised.

The visitors were denied a goal within three minutes of the half-time break by a last-ditch Eric Bailly challenge. Manchester United on the other hand could be licking their lips at this draw, and having gone to top notch form at Old Trafford, it could be as clear as day that Mourinho will win the tie.

"But I believed in myself, believed in the team and we showed we are a great team".

Ben Yedder received Pablo Sarabia's pass and thumped a finish beyond De Gea for his first, and the goalkeeper - instrumental to United's clean sheet in Seville - could not keep out the striker's back-post header four minutes later.

"We deserved this. We were patient, we knew that one goal could see us reach the quarter-finals".
