The Sevilla FC coach Manuel Jiménez said his side were "thinking only about winning the group" as they made themselves favourites to do so by knocking Arsenal FC off their perch at the top of Group H, a position they will confirm by defeating SK Slavia Praha. Arsène Wenger was gracious in defeat, saying the better team won, after resting a number of players with a berth in the next stage already assured.
Manuel Jiménez, Sevilla coach
Wenger is a fantastic coach, but Sevilla played a great game against prestigious opponents. We played at the level we reached during our best performances this season. We showed the right mentality and attitude; we didn't have the right attitude against [RCD] Mallorca [losing 2-1 at home at the weekend]. The match in Prague will be a lot calmer, less exciting; I certainly hope so. We're only thinking about finishing top of the group, although Slavia will be difficult opponents.
Arsène Wenger, Arsenal manager
I'm only upset that we lost the match, and I only want to talk about a football match between two great European teams. I don't regret changing my team because all my players can play at a top level and this was a great chance for them to get more European experience. We began well but after the second Sevilla goal we relaxed and then got weaker. They played physically and congratulations to them - they deserved to win. The important thing is to qualify, not to go unbeaten.
