The Red Devils will face Sevilla in the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals, as the draw was made on Friday. Of course, Manchester United players are ready for the challenge.
Therefore, Erik ten Hag’s men will be playing against La Liga teams for the fourth time this campaign.
They have faced Real Sociedad, Barcelona, and Real Betis in the competition, and now it’s Sevilla.
Unfortunately, Manchester United haven’t won any games over Sevilla. Their three games against the Spanish side didn’t end well.
As a result, Erik ten Hag is expected to change the narrative in April, trying his best to restore the club’s lost glory.
The Red Devils have already lifted one trophy (Carabao Cup) this campaign, and are FA Cup quarter-finalist.

Without wasting too much time, Erik ten Hag settled very quickly at Old Trafford. He’s currently above Liverpool and the Blues.
Even though the Red Devils haven’t won any games against Sevilla. The gaffer is tactical enough to set records.

Bruno Fernandes – 10 assists
Of course, the Portuguese magnifico will top the list, being the most creative player in the team, always helping the team’s display.
Fernandes has been able to register 10 assists in all competitions for the Red Devils in the 2022-2023 campaign.

Frankly, Bruno has his own peaks and valleys, once in a while flop in some matches, however, his contribution cannot be ignored.
Aside from Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City. Fernandes is arguably considered the most creative player in the league.
Christian Eriksen – 9 assists
Another player with a high level of creativity. The Danish midfielder has been a massive boost for Manchester United.
Even though he has many things in common with Bruno Fernandes. Erik ten Hag always likes their combination in the midfield.
Having left Brentford during last summer’s transfer window. Eriksen has recorded 9 assists for the Red Devils in 2022-2023.

Marcus Rashford – 7 assists
Man of the moment, the Englishman is currently on fire in Europe’s top-5 leagues, destroying the opposition’s defenders.

Of course, Marcus plays mostly as a central forward or supporting striker this season. Nevertheless, he adds 7 assists to his name.
Anthony Martial has been kind of injury-prone since the beginning of the season. The Englishman has been playing the No.9 position.

Casemiro – 6 assists
Despite being a defensive midfielder, the Brazilian has more assists than the likes of Antony, Alejandro Garnacho, and other attackers.

Erik ten Hag’s troops have been flying high this campaign because of Casemiro. He is the heart of the team.
Luke Shaw – 5 assists

The Dutch manager has revived many Manchester United players, and Shaw is one of them, as evidenced by his statistics.
Despite being a left-back, Luke Shaw has recorded 5 assists for the Red Devils. That’s more than other full backs in the team.
The Englishman has even played the centre-back role this campaign, putting his versatility into action.
Defensive fullbacks don’t create many chances. However, Shaw has the ability to balance his movements on the pitch.
Fred – 4 assists
Another midfielder on the list of the players with the most assists for the Red Devils in all competitions.
Apparently, Erik ten Hag loves to attack and press from the midfield. Either defensively or offensively, he wants his midfield to move forward.
Even though Fred isn’t a regular starter under the Dutchman. He has been able to register 4 assists for the Red Devils.
The Brazilian is one of the players with impressive performances this campaign, and his combination with Casemiro is nice.
Because the manager is attack-minded, his midfielders are allowed to score goals and orchestrate chances.
Alejandro Garnacho – 4 assists

However, he may not have more than four assists this season, as regards his out-of-season injury.
Garnacho is expected to have more impact on the team next season, establishing himself under the manager.
Wout Weghorst – 3 assists
The Burnley loanee is one of the most underrated United players this season, particularly in the Premier League.
At least, he’s the 2022-2023 Carabao Cup champion, his move to Old Trafford paid off. And he’s most likely to win more trophies this season.
Despite his position on the pitch, Wout Weghorst added 3 assists to his all-around statistics this campaign.
Of course, he plays as the central forward, changing positions with Marcus Rashford. Nevertheless, he’s creative.
The Dutchman plays offensively like a defender, always pressing the defender, causing havoc inside the opponent’s box.
