Erik ten Hag urged his Manchester United players to focus on their next game within moments of beating Real Betis in the Europa League.

United avoided a potential banana peel in Spain, winning 1-0 to complete a 5-1 aggregate win over Manuel Pellegrini’s side. They remain among the favorites for Europa League glory, having reached the semi-finals in 2020 and the final in 2021.

However, that is not the only tournament they are aiming for and an FA Cup quarter-final with Fulham awaits them on Sunday. United have already won a domestic cup under Ten Hag this season and goalkeeper David de Gea revealed where the manager’s focus lies.

BREAKING – Europa League draw made

Manchester United play Sevilla in the quarter-finals of the Europa League after the draw charted the path Erik ten Hag’s side must take if they hope to win a second title this season.

United reached the last eight of Europe’s second-tier club competition, edging past Real Betis 5-1 on aggregate after Thursday night’s 1-0 win in Spain. Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the game to seal progression after a dominant display in the first leg at Old Trafford last week.

Their reward is a third straight KO draw against a Spanish club, followed by a two-legged tie against Sevilla. The game will be played on April 13th and 20th. If they get past that, the winners of Juventus or Sporting Lisbon await in the semi-finals on May 11 and 18.

Alli was once considered one of the best youngsters in European football – leaving fans wondering what happened. Former team-mate Kieran Tripper believes Alli’s fall was sparked by Mauricio Pochettino’s departure from Tottenham in November 2019.
