Villa proving top four credentials - Heskey

Aston Villa are ready for the Champions League, says striker Emile Heskey.

Heskey reckons Aston Villa's win at Fulham has underlined their Champions League credentials.

Fulham have beaten Manchester United twice at Craven Cottage and Liverpool once in the last 12 months.

England striker Heskey said: "You see teams - top-four teams - go there and get outplayed but we really got at them and I think we deserved the points.

"Now we've got to try and keep our foot on the pedal. We always come bouncing back. We will never give up.

"Our confidence was high anyway because of the performances we had been putting in, but you've got to get the goals to go with that and against Fulham we did.

"They are a good side and they pass it around well.

"But we are all buzzing. We have some really great lads and we get on really well together. It's a nice atmosphere."
