Speak, Nuno Espírito Santo!

"Appointing Mark (in charge of VAR) was more about trying to understand some of the decisions that were made, to understand the interpretation of the referee and the VAR.

We had an incident against West Ham that was clear, we needed the referee or the VAR to make the right decision because in my opinion it was a clear penalty. So it's trying to understand some of the decisions. We know each other and we'll meet again. Let's hope the decisions work out, that's what all the clubs want.

The three players (Willy Boly, Ibrahim Sangare and Ola Aina) who have returned are not available. All of them - Ola, Willy and Ibrahim - have been injured, so they won't be available for this match. We don't have a date for their return. Ola got injured in the semi-final, played the final injured, tried but didn't play the final. Ibrahim the same, he's been struggling since he was at AFCON. So three of them aren't available, which is bad for us".

Speak, Unai Emery!

"We're excited to be playing in Europe. We're going to face Ajax in Amsterdam, a historic club, a very successful club. I think we can enjoy playing against Ajax there and here at Villa Park, feeling good and creating a good atmosphere here with our fans and our path in the Conference League. Ajax are progressing very well in their league. We've faced AZ Alkmaar before and, more or less, it's the same trip, the same style and idea, because Dutch teams have a similar idea of playing soccer.

I respect them (Forest) a lot - their coach and players. They were very, very competitive before, when we played there (The City Ground) and they won. They're still being very, very competitive, with renewed energy from the new manager. He's an experienced coach and tactically very good.

They're trying to improve, keeping possession and controlling the game, making combinations. It will be very, very difficult. My respect is for the players, the coach and his strong tactical structure.

I think they'll play here like before. They're playing with good pressure, high pressure, a medium block and they're having success. They're a very difficult team to break down. If we're imposing and demanding more, maybe they can go into a low block. I think they'll play as they are, keeping possession and trying to connect quickly with Gibbs-White, Taiwo Awoniyi and their two wingers.

They can take their time with some players in the middle, with Dominguez, Danilo and, if he plays, Sangare. They have players to play at different tactical moments in the 90 minutes. We'll be ready to try and impose our game plan, impose our positioning and impose our moments."
