Villa keeper Guzan won't set points target for survival

Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan says the relegation battle is too unpredictable to put a points target on survival.

Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan says the relegation battle is too unpredictable to put a points target on survival.

The USA international reckons it’s pointless highlighting specific games as potential victories as there’s just as much chance of upsetting one of the big boys.

“You can’t work out a points total because football is a mad game that you can’t predict,” he said,

“Every weekend there are shocks. There are results no-one would have thought would happen, and they do.

“That’s what makes the game so exciting for the fans and nerve-wracking for players.

“You can’t look at the fixture list and say you will get this result here and that result there.

“You prepare each week for a specific game and that is your focus.”
