"They will play football against us and go looking for goals and the win - and that gives us the chance to hit them on the break. Other teams will come and see that we are in good form and put men behind the ball. Then it's up to us to break them down.
"Teams would come to Elland Road and sit back and defend. They had never experienced that before and the onus was on them to win the games. It is the same at Villa now. We need to learn how to do that and there's no reason why we can't.
"Fulham got a good point against Liverpool at Anfield and I'm sure that's a strength - being solid away from home. I think they will come and sit back. They will come and try and clock up another clean sheet.
"It's up to us. We have the quality and I think an early goal would help. That's what we'll be looking for."
