Stiliyan Petrov urges Aston Villa to move on from Chelsea horror show

Destroyed: Petrov's Villa couldn't cope with Chelsea Stiliyan Petrov has demanded Aston Villa forget about the hammering they took at Chelsea and get back on track in the battle for a Champions League place. Villa's hopes of finishing fourth in the Premier League took a massive dent when they were crushed 7-1 at Stamford Bridge. Martin O'Neill's side are now seven points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with seven games left. Petrov told AVTV: 'It is going to be a very long week but we will try and forget it as quickly as we can. Results like that are not the best and we want to get it out of the way as quickly as we can and concentrate on the next game. 'We didn't show any spirit which is very surprising. We always battle but we lost our heart which is not like us. 'That is why we will try and pull things together because we've had a good season so far and we won't let that one result ruin it for us.' The two sides meet again in the semi-finals of the FA Cup and Petrov has warned Chelsea to expect a differnt Villa side to turn up on April 10. He said: 'We feel sorry for the travelling fans because they have been magnificent for us and what they saw wasn't pleasant. 'We've got a semi-final to look forward to and we need to play them and I think we'll be a lot different in the semi-final.'
