Ron Vlaar: Optimistic regarding Aston Villa's survival chances

Ron Vlaar: Optimistic regarding Aston Villa's survival chances

Villa have yet to secure their Premier League status with just one more fixture remaining on their 2012/13 calendar.

A 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday means they could still be overhauled by 18th-placed Wigan Athletic - if the Latics were to win their last two matches.

Villa are due to face the Latics at the DW Stadium on Sunday in what could be a make-or-break encounter.

Vlaar is, however, adamant that Paul Lambert's side will enter that contest in optimistic mood if they are still sweating on their top-flight status.

He said: "In the last few months we have only lost against top-six teams and beaten all the teams around us.

"If you look through the season, the confidence is a lot better. The way we play is better.

"We were right on top at one stage during the Chelsea game. We definitely deserved some points."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
