Sevilla's Director of Sport Monchi erred on the side of caution after hearing the outcome of today's Champions League draw which sees Leicester City visit the Sánchez Pizjuán for the first time on 22 February: "They are the defending league champions, they are a complicated rival".

Defending champions

Leicester: "We will be up against defending Premier League champions - a side who put four past Man City at the weekend. They are a complicated rival".

Prognostic: "It's very difficult to evaluate what will happen in fthree months' time, but I am expecting to face the Leicester we saw run away with the league last year; they enjoyed a good group stage and they put in a great performance against City at the weekend - that is the team I am expecting to face. They haven't been doing so well in the Premier League this season and that will allow them to focus on the Champions League".

Reinforcements in January: "We have the whole of January to see if we need to tweak the squad".
