Villa v Fulham: Westwood calls for repeat of Chelsea intensity


Harrison

Ashley Westwood has called for Villa to play with the same intensity as they did against Chelsea when they return to Villa Park this afternoon.

Westwood reckons it is important for Paul Lambert's team to get straight on the front foot against Barclays Premier League strugglers Fulham this afternoon.

And the former Crewe midfielder sees the clash against Felix Magath's side as a great opportunity to get back on track after consecutive defeats to Stoke and Manchester United.

Westwood insists a top ten finish is still achievable if Villa can break down the Cottagers.

"I think if we get back to what we did against Chelsea - really pressurise teams and get on the front foot -we can beat any team," said the 24-year-old.

"That is when we are at our best. We have had a few setbacks but we are still looking for top-half finish and that is well within our grasp.

"We are at home and we should be winning games at home now.

"We are not looking at what is behind us, we are just concentrating on ourselves and we are looking to pick up as many points as we can.

"They will be up for it and they need to win a few games now but it is a great chance for us to get back on track."
