Emery Eager Bent On Seizing Opportunity To Play European Football

Emery Eager Bent On Seizing Opportunity To Play European Foo

Unai Emery is determined to grasp a possible "last opportunity" to secure a slot for Aston Villa in next season's European competition.

Villa are sitting in eighth place in the Premier League following back-to-back away defeats to Manchester United and Wolves.

They're eight points behind fifth-placed Liverpool, three points behind sixth-placed Tottenham and one point behind seventh-placed Brighton with three games remaining.

This means that Villa are outside the places for European football but can move back into the fray should they beat Tottenham at home by three goals.

Emery feels confident ahead of Saturday's crunch game and believes his players have what it requires to get the job done.

"We're three points behind Tottenham, everybody wants to enjoy this moment and play this match with the supporters," Emery said.

"The last two matches against Manchester and Wolves we lost, but it's not changed our good moments we are taking at home with our supporters.

"We deserve this opportunity because the last five matches we won at home and those 15 points have helped us be here.

"We have to be positive, to be happy and very focused because it could be the last opportunity. 

"Or maybe it could be a very good opportunity to keep playing key matches, where me as a coach and the players can improve and build and take challenges in the new direction.

"We are playing for one place in Europe and playing against teams like Tottenham, Liverpool and Brighton. 

"They are different teams but they're amongst the biggest teams in the Premier League this year."
