“Sevilla are one of the favourites. First they have to find a way around Manchester United.

“They are cup fighters; they live to play these types of games.

“I almost talked to them before my time at Arsenal, they were one of the three options I could go to. It was tempting to go there, but then I chose Arsenal.”
