Villa have seen off Manchester United and Sunderland on their travels over the last few days and face Stoke at Villa Park on Saturday for their third game in a week. O'Neill expects Tony Pulis's side to be fresh having had no midweek game, but is hopeful Villa - currently fourth in the Premier League - can maintain their form and rise to the challenge once again. "Stoke have had no midweek game. But we go into the match on the back of two away performances - and two games we have won at tough venues in Old Trafford and the Stadium of Light," O'Neill told the club's official website. "Now it's a case of resting up and getting prepared for this weekend physically. Mentally we will be right. Physically it will be very demanding - but that's the Premier League."
