Los Palangana are also undefeated in their four matches at home in La Liga having recorded four successive wins.
"The team has come out very well and it is not usual to have so much dominance in such a short period of time," Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui was a happy man after their win over Valencia.
"Then something happens and you have to suffer. They scored a goal out of nowhere, it was not our fault. We had some doubts and we came out very well again and we were able to score the fourth goal. We did a very good job. 
"We have to be able to play with humility and the football reality of our league, which is very complicated and they are very difficult teams."
