Manchester United drew 2-2 with Sevilla in the first leg of the Europa League quarter-finals.
United’s sole scorer was Marcel Sabitzer, who scored two goals in the first half to lead the team.
However, United produced a weak and boring second half that saw Jose Luis Mendley’s men return to the final.
A number of costly mistakes saw the League side recover from the deficit to score twice in eight minutes.
The semi-finals are all up for grabs in Spain next week.
United host the Ramon Sánchez-Pizjuan Stadium today against a weakened side that has been dismissed by Erik ten Haag.
The team’s starting center back duo, Lisandro Martinez and Rafael Varane, both suffered injuries and had to be sidelined. Martinez in particular looks serious and there is a real fear he could be sidelined for months.
Anthony was one of the best players at Old Trafford tonight.
The Brazilian has recorded 50 touchdowns.
He won an incredible nine Tests at home. Anthony also completed five dribbles while on the field. He was substituted in the second half – Ten Haag was told by the referee after the game that he was close to a red card – and Facundo Pellistri came on.
Anthony attempted five shots. He hit the post on one occasion and came close with a stunning curling effort.
The 23-year-old won two balls and hit a long ball successfully.
Anthony’s game against Sevilla in numbers:
9 batters won in the field
5 dribbles are completed
2 matches won
1/1 long ball completed
1 shot from the woodwork

Anthony made one interception and several clearances. With injuries piling up, the likes of Anthony are expected to support the team and take United to the finish line.
