McDermott insists although Paul Lambertâs Villa are languishing just one place and a point ahead of his promoted side, they are a squad more than capable of getting themselves out of trouble.
He said: âClubs go in cycles. I remember in the 1980s when they were European champions and had fantastic players.
âThey are a massive club. They have a young side now that work hard and have plenty of pace.
âThey have a good spirit about them.â
