Christian Eriksen believes Man Utd will bounce back from Europa League defeat at Wembley against Brighton

Manchester United midfielder Christian Eriksen says the team want to show they are better than their 3-0 loss to Sevilla in the Europa League last night.

A double from Youssef En-Nesyri helped set Sevilla on their way to victory. Loic Bade also scored to send United packing.

Individual errors from United’s backline cost them today. David De Gea and Harry Maguire made two costly mistakes that led to Sevilla’s goals.

The result was disappointing, but Eriksen is already looking ahead. United face Brighton & Hove Albion at Wembley Stadium for a place in the FA Cup final on Sunday.

Eriksen believes the FA Cup clash is an opportunity for United to bounce back.

He told BT Sport (via Man United’s official website): “I think everyone as a footballer has had a bad day and the next day will change. It’s really just the mentality [that] has to change.

“We know it’s going to be a completely different opponent, a completely different style, so I think, from tomorrow, there will be a focus on Brighton.

“It’s definitely going to change our feelings towards the next game or whoever we’re going to play after this.

“We want to show that we’re better than what we did today. We want to give something back to the fans and to the club.”

Eriksen missed United’s League Cup victory over Newcastle United with an ankle injury he sustained against Reading.

However, he is fit and will likely be in the starting XI for the Brighton clash.
