The Dutch international defender insists Villaâ€™s players are looking at top half rather than the relegation zone.
Vlaar said: â€śWe are positive and really optimistic going into the remaining games. Fans need to know that too.
â€śWe have great belief. Obviously, we know the situation we are in. But within the camp we feel very calm.â€ť
Vlaar added: â€śWe have the character within this team and weâ€™ve shown that. We showed it last season and thatâ€™s the same throughout the squad.
â€śWe finished strongly then and we know we can do that again. The belief is there and thatâ€™s what gives us the confidence. Thatâ€™s why weâ€™re optimistic about what we need to do.â€ť
