The Yellows head coach was frustrated with the defeat, in a game where small details decided the result

Villarreal CF head coach Unai Emery appeared in front of the media after the defeat to Sevilla FC at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán (2-0): "It was a game where we put in a complete first-half performance, but we lacked clarity in the final third to score. We weren't giving them many chances."

The Basque manager spoke about the penalty which broke the deadlock early on: "As a head coach it hurts you that from an isolated incident like that, a penalty is given. VAR is here to help and there are still improvements to make. The penalty conditioned the game a lot."

Finally Emery underlined the need to move on and focus on Saturday's game against Levante UD: "You need to look forward. This defeat comes after a long unbeaten run. On Saturday, we have the chance to show how we can play well to get the three points."
