Garde not in the mood to party


Remi Garde has warned his Aston Villa players they must remain focused throughout the Christmas period if they are to have any chance of avoiding relegation.

Villa are currently bottom of the Premier League table, seven points adrift of safety, after winning just one of their 14 fixtures this season.

They face Southampton, Arsenal, Newcastle United, West Ham and Norwich City over the course of the next month and the manager has made it clear the players must behave during the festive period.

While he refused to confirm whether Villa will have a Christmas party, Garde said: "You think I should be worried? I can't imagine when you have opportunity to play in the Premier League, in a big club, big games, that you could be disturbed by this time of parties. Even if it is Christmas.

"You can have Christmas with family and be prepared to play this game. If you speak to every European player they would like to play Boxing Day, this time to play is fantastic.

“You have to know this is our job, you do it in a way that you are prepared to be 100 per cent focused. Of course, it is a party time but not for us. That is it."
