Emery, who has not coached in the Spanish top flight since leaving Valencia last summer for an ill-fated spell at Spartak Moscow, saw his new side take the lead through Jose Antonio Reyes on 40 minutes.

Getafe pulled back onto level terms before the half-time break though as Adrian Colunga struck to the delight of the majority inside the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez.

Both sides had chances to find a winner in the second half, but the stalemate endured, leaving Getafe 10th on 26 points and Sevilla three points back in 12th.
