Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has challenged his players to take advantage of Chelsea’s weak moment and fight for three points in the next game.
Due to the fact that Aston Villa have already been tipped for another relegation battle this season, their manager Tim Sherwood has urged his players to take advantage of Chelsea’s weak moment to protect themselves from the relegation zone.
Sherwood told the Birmingham Mail:
“I like to try to win enough games rather than going out there not to be beat because I have done that a few times and you end up getting beat anyway,”
“I’d rather go to win but I need to find a team out of the squad who can go to places like Stamford Bridge and not be scared and are willing to put up a fight and be brave on the football. I’m learning all the time about them. They train hard, they are all good lads. I need some men to come out of the woodwork.”
Asked about a possible relegation battle if Aston Villa’s results get worse he said:
“Quite possibly, yes, but I’m confident in my ability to be able to turn this around and try and get a spark,”
“At the moment I’m still searching for that. Our performances earlier on in the season, certainly at Leicester for a period of time, have been okay but not been great and not been consisent.”
“In the end in this league you get what you deserve. It’s too early for a relegation battle. There’s still so many points to be won. Back to back wins can send you up the league and I’m confident we’ll be able to do that.”
