Martin O'Neill says the team is still hungry for 5th place and believes they have put in enough effort this season to deserve it.
The Villa boss also points to great progress this season, which some agree with and some argue about as as it stands we are 1 point behind last seasons point haul, I guess tomorrow v Newcastle will show if we have improved or not?!
He told AVTV: 'We'll be going for it this weekend and pressing forward to win because we want to finish fifth. Psychologically, I suppose it is important to finish higher this season. People will think that shows progression. But I think we have improved regardless. We have played a lot more competitive games this season and I think that gets overlooked.'
He also points out that Villa have qualified for Europe for a second season in a row, something that was done and dusted a few weeks back.

He says 'From our point of view, we want to go and win for ourselves. The title has already been decided and relegation is the really big issue on Sunday but we have plenty to play for ourselves. We want to finish fifth and the ironic thing is we aren't guaranteed that - even if we win.'
