Gerard Houllier: Aston Villa can go unbeaten

11th April 2011 - Sigvard Magnus

Aston Villa football manager Gerard Houllier wants his side to go unbeaten for the last six soccer games of the Premier League season.

The West Midlands club won a tight game against Newcastle 1-0 at Villa Park on Sunday (April 10th), leaving them five points clear of the relegation zone.

Football manager Houllier described the win as "massive" and said there was no reason why his team could not remain unbeaten for the rest of the season.

"There are three positive things about this: it was a win, we kept a clean sheet, and we moved up the table ... It will give [the players] more confidence for the future and make them more aware of what we can do," he told the BBC.

Villa will hope to have secured their Premier League status within the next four soccer games, before having to face Arsenal and Liverpool in their final two fixtures.
