That tie's not quite dead yet.
United lost 1-0 at Old Trafford, putting us at a disadvantage for the second leg.

Paul Pogba scored twice from the spot to keep Manchester United firmly in the hunt for Champions League qualification with a 2-1 win over West Ham United at Old Trafford. "He loves to play, so he's not very happy when he can't help his teammates".
West Ham looked the more likely team to score a victor but substitute Michail Antonio was denied by the crossbar and a superb save from David De Gea, with the score at 1-1, before Anthony Martial was hauled down on a quick counterattack to give United its second penalty of the match. There have been different players in different periods that have made the difference.

Rojo was allowed to train with Estudiantes in his homeland during the recent global break in a bid to regain fitness, and made a 13-minute cameo during United's 2-1 win over Watford in March.
