Iborra: Only ourselves to blame

Vicente Iborra insists Sevilla only have themselves to blame after crashing out of the Champions League to Leicester City on Tuesday.

Goals from Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton (pictured) deprived Sevilla of a first-ever appearance in the Champions League quarter-finals, although Samir Nasri and Jorge Sampaoli were both sent off and Steven N’Zonzi missed a penalty.

“I think we lost the tie ourselves,” the midfielder said after the game.

“With the 2-0 in Sevilla, we thought we could take a bigger lead, but then we conceded a goal and it hurt us.

“We battled and fought, they scored from a set-piece and we had a chance to level the tie, but we paid for [our penalty miss].

“Nasri?  I don’t know what happened, the referee blew his whistle and I saw that he booked [Nasri] and Vardy. Obviously that hindered us.

“We have to fix a lot of things and focus on our only objective left, which is to end our League campaign as well as possible.

“We have a tough game on Sunday and we have to show we’re a team that deserve respect.

“It’s our turn to come out of a bad situation, work together and achieve a win that will suit us as a team.”
