Forget Chelsea - Bring On Everton

Forget Chelsea - Bring On Everton

Martin O'Neill has said forget about the Chelsea defeat, Villa have to move on:

'My job now is to lift the players for Everton.' Explaining 'Lifting the players, that's my job and that's what I am paid to do. That goes with it. Losing 4-0 at Chelsea was a blow but there is no point being down and feeling sorry for yourselves. We know what the next step is. We're all allowed to be down immediately after the result, but eventually I have to get myself right and then I will get the players right. We have to go out and put that game behind us.'

'It doesn't really matter who we are facing, it does not matter. We have got to go and compete and stay in the game and get some real genuine belief about us. It was our second defeat and they have been by two of the finest sides playing at the moment. Liverpool on a very good day...But that's the nature of the game. That happens. You have to go and compete. I will have a little think about things, obviously, and we will get ourselves right for Everton.'

3 points against the Toffee's and we'll be laughing!

i think villa are doing well, and but if there was one game to watch this weekend it will be this, 2 sides full of passion and good managers, unless they start swearing at the ref and calling him a cheat.

Will be a tough game at Goodison. But at least we know that the players will go there and give 100%. Can't really ask for more than that. Apart from the 3 points and a 5-0 win maybe!

I just cant be at all confident about tommorow, which is a shame coz I remember the days when I always expected 3 points against Everton.

No reason why we can't be optimistic about tomorrow. Nobody in the Premiership is guaranteed 3 points anymore. I'm sure MON will get them up for it. 2-0 win for me, with Petrov getting a goal

No better manager to have in charge, lifting the lads spirits for this game following Wednesdays no show. It'll be tough, need to watch AJ, while Beattie will attempt to unsettle Ridge and Cahill. Last seasons Goodison encounter was another one of those total submissions, a complete shambles from start to finish. We'll do well to get a point, particularly now the injuries are kicking in.

We have to prove that Chelsea was a one-off. No better way to get back on track than three points on merseyside.
