West Ham defender Johnson: Everything can change when Sevilla are in London

West Ham defender Ben Johnson insists their Europa League round 16 tie against Sevilla remains alive.

The Irons had several presentable opportunities against Sevilla at the Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium but were undone by a clever set-piece early in the second half, dispatched on the volley by Munir.

Nevertheless, a 1-0 loss at the home of the Europa League’s six-time winners – and of the tournament favourites this season – is far from a lost cause going into the second leg at home.

Johnson told whufc.com: “It’s the first leg, it’s done, and it’s a bit disappointing, because we had chances.

“That’s the way it’s been for a few games now. We’re just looking forward to the next leg. It’s only seven days away until we can get out there and hopefully put it right.

“It was our first away trip in the last 16. Everyone did really well, and we played really well, so it’s something to build on.

“You know what you’re going to get from our fans [in these kind of games].

“I’ve played a few away games and the support we get every week is fantastic. You see the games we had away in the group stage, in terms of Zagreb and Genk… you can see the support we have and it really spurs us on.

“It’s going to be a great atmosphere in the home leg, knowing that we need to score and we need to win, and I’m sure they’ll do a great job really supporting us.”
