Villa boss O'Neill confident facing Palace after five-goal haul

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill was delighted with their five goal blast in victory over Burnley.

Villa head into their FA Cup replay with Crystal Palace in confident mood after hammering five goals past Burnley on Sunday.

O'Neill said: "Scoring five goals was very important for us.

"I don't care whether they are centre-forwards or wide men. Everyone likes to score to show people they have made a major contribution to the game.

"I think the players who scored will take great confidence from not only the goals they scored but the performance in the second half."
