Unai Emery: Will have Cristoforo missing

The 20-year-old Uruguayan, who joined Sevilla from Penarol last summer, damaged his left knee in Sunday's 4-1 Primera Division win over Real Valladolid and tests on Monday confirmed he had torn the anterior cruciate ligament.

A Sevilla statement read: "The estimated period he will be out is six months after he undergoes his operation, the date of which has yet to be determined."

Sevilla's win over Valladolid was their fourth on the trot in La Liga and left them in seventh place, seven points off the Champions League spots.

Unai Emery's men are also still involved in the Europa League, where they will need to overcome a 2-0 deficit away to arch-rivals Real Betis on Thursday if they are to reach the quarter-finals.

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
