United managed just three shots on target compared to the visitors' six.
"The game against Crystal Palace was a negative performance considering the players they've got," Wright told Sky Sports.
"They won it in the end because they've got quality and Palace ran out of steam.
"Especially if you're gonna let them come on to you. You want Liverpool coming on to you and that's what they did.
"Sevilla didn't do that and they didn't have any answers for that today.
"For me, at Old Trafford, when you consider they had just 32 per cent possession against Liverpool...
"You want them to have more possession, create more chances but they just don't do it.
"In the end the team frustrated them, they couldn't score and Sevilla deserved to win the game."
