Knight: Aston Villa for 4th

Aston Villa defender Zat Knight believes the Villains are more than capable of still coming fourth in the Premiership this season.

"We haven't got a game this weekend and hopefully we can rest up for the final push. Then we need to get the points against Middlesbrough, Portsmouth and Sunderland," he told the club's official website.

"If we can get those points then we can go to Old Trafford with confidence high. That's our hardest remaining game. If we can go there and get something, we'll still be in the hunt.

"To do so well and be so unlucky not to get all three points at Arsenal makes our confidence sky-high. It shows us we can do it against the very best. We did it for 92 minutes and 55 seconds.

"If we can apply the same attitude over the last ten games, I can't see why we can't claim that fourth spot."
