Villa boss O'Neill shrugs off Chelsea media bias

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill has shrugged off the lack of recognition his team received after defeat to Chelsea.

O'Neill was reacting after most post-match pieces concentrated on Chelsea's woes instead of Villa's outstanding performance.

He told AVTV: "I can accept that viewpoint.

"Chelsea have been up there for the last five years. They have been a brilliant side for quite some considerable time. They have won championships, they have won a host of competitions and gone close in the Champions League.

"So they have earnt the right to be talked about. If we start winning the amount of games Chelsea do in a season and contesting, then and only then will they give us the mileage and coverage that we think we deserve. I have no real problem with that at all."
