Wembley date can wait for Martin O’Neill

Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill is bracing himself for his biggest week of the season.

Villa are facing up to a crucial seven days that will see them play Burnley in the Premier League tomorrow, Crystal Palace in an FA Cup fifth-round replay on Wednesday and then Manchester United in the Carling Cup final at Wembley next Sunday.

“Naturally, I will treat each game on its merits,” said O’Neill.

“Each game is so very important, with the FA Cup replay against Crystal Palace on Wednesday the next hurdle after we play against Burnley.”
