Bertrand eyes top-ten finish

Loan star Ryan Bertrand is confident Aston Villa can end the season on a high and is targeting a top-ten finish.

Bertrand believes Villa can build on their thumping win over Norwich last time out and end any fears of being dragged into a relegation dogfight.

Villa face Chelsea this weekend and, although Bertrand will be unable to face his parent club, he says there is a buzz about the club after the win over Norwich.

"There's a buzz about the place at the moment," Bertrand told the club's official website. "The win over Norwich does wonders for us. We just need to keep focused now.

"We have had a mixed bag of results but we had a good win the other weekend and we want to take that into the next game.

"We're looking at as high as ninth in the Premier League, but we can definitely push for the 10th spot and that, in my opinion, would be a really good finish.

"It's important to try and get the consistency.

"If we do that we'll be able to achieve some great things."
