Martin O'Neill has spoken about a 'tough lesson' at Stamford Bridge today and admits that Villa 'capitulated' making it a 'devastating' result for him.
'It was as devastating as I've had in the game. I've been in the game as a player and a manager quite some considerable time and you get taught quite a few lessons on the way and that was a tough as any.'
He says they know they'll have to do better at Wembley.
'We have to fight back and we intend to do so. From our own viewpoint, that wasn't good enough. In terms of finishing fourth - on that performance we wouldn't finish 44th.
