“I knew three or four minutes before our game was over (that they had made the top four) because the game at Leicester was over a bit earlier and it was clear we were through.

“We did not prepare for the occasion today, we prepared for the match. It’s normally hard to create chances against Aston Villa but we created a lot.

“We are still a young team and we try to evolve and make them better. We needed many clean sheets to overcome this lack of composure and precision. Today we conceded out of nothing and made it hard to come back.”
