Manchester United got off to a bad start in the new Premier League season. The draw for the Europa League group stage, on the other hand, makes the Red Devils fans cheer.

The fans are happy: The group stage of the Europa League was drawn on Friday. Many Manchester United fans react with joy to the Red Devils’ first opponents. “Give the trophy to Manchester United right away,” wrote one user on Twitter.

Short, compact, clear

Mixed opinions: Although supporters reacted generally positively to Man United’s group, some felt that coach Erik ten Hag’s side could have benefited from a more difficult group. Manchester face Real Sociedad, Omonia Nicosia and Sheriff Tiraspol in the group stage.
