Unai Emery believes there is no point in his team dwelling on being eliminated from the Europa Conference League.

The Aston Villa manager wants his players to quickly divert their attention from European competitions and focus on the Premier League after losing the two-legged match against Olympiakos.

Emery is aiming for promotion to the Champions League

Aston Villa will end the season with matches against Liverpool and Crystal Palace, fighting for the historic first promotion to the Champions League. – First, we go back to Birmingham. Then rest and on Saturday we focus on the match against Liverpool. We are motivated and excited about this challenge. Yes, today we are disappointed, but only one team can win, so there is no point in dwelling on this rivalry, admitted Unai Emery, quoted by SportsMole.co.uk.

Theoretically, Aston Villa’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League depend on Tottenham Hotspur’s results, who are seven points behind Villa and have played one game less.

If Tottenham fails to lose any of their games against Burnley, Manchester City and Sheffield United, Villa may be deprived of the chance to play in Europe’s most important club competition.

Spurs play Burnley two days before Villa take on Liverpool, which means Emery and his team will know what situation they find themselves in.

If Tottenham wins against Burnley, Villa will have to beat Liverpool to remain in a comfortable position. Other results for the Roosters will put Aston Villa in a much better position.

We will analyze what we did in the last two games against Olympiacos. We will try to take a lesson from this for the future and draw positives. We have gathered valuable experience. Now we will rest, reset and move on,” Emery added.
