Fernandinho spoke to reporters on Monday to discuss Manchester City's trip to Sevilla in a critical UEFA Champions League Group Stage clash.

On Sevilla:

"I think so - they showed when they played at the Etihad that they have some quality players and that they are a tough team.

"They have good counter-attacking players and we need to be careful but I think the best way to do that is to be strong in defence and in the middle and for us to play our normal attacking game.

On the importance of a result:

"It's always important to win, butsometimes when you cannot win, it'salso important not to lose"

"That's the way we played in the derby, but I can't say whether it will happen or not against Sevilla. A draw would not be a bad result as it's always good to pick up points away from home in the Champions League."

"It would be amazing if we could qualify with two games to go by winning this match, but we first have to make sure we don't give anything away and be clever and intelligent," he said.

"It's a tough place to go, we have to be sharp from the first minute and we need our fans to be with us from the word go."
