O'Neill convinced Villa can snatch Euro place from Everton

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill believes momentum is with them as they chase down Everton for fifth place and UEFA Cup qualification.

After their 5-1 victory over Birmingham City, O'Neill said: "We have put ourselves in with a chance. I've a lot of time for Everton, and it has been a terrific season for them in the league and in a couple of cup competitions.

"We go there knowing we have to win the game, and the good thing is we have given ourselves a chance."

O'Neill believes the current goal power being shown by Villa has been on the cards for much of the season.

He said: "I think we have been creating chances all season. Now they are starting to fly in, and only Manchester United have scored more goals than us.

"Unfortunately, we also concede a lot of goals, maybe that is inevitable with the way we play, but we are attack minded."
