United only had themselves to blame after failing to take numerous chances in a game where they had 30 shots at goal, the clearest of which came when Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty in the first half.
Jadon Sancho seemed to have put United on the road to the last 16 when he marked his FA Cup debut with a goal.
Instead, United’s most realistic chance of silverware has now disappeared.
