Aston Villa right back Ahmed Elmohamady believes the break is a good opportunity for the players to prepare for the finish of the season in a proper way.
The Lions have 25 points after 28 matches and are two points from the safe zone.
Villa have lost the previous 5 matches, however, Elmohamady remains positive and believes their team spirit is good enough to reach their goal and stay in the Premier League for the next season.
“I do believe this break could give us a fresh start to play the final 10 games of the season, and give everyone a chance to reset.” Elmohamady told Sky Sports.
“We went through a tough period before the season stopped, and this break would allow the likes of John McGinn, who is a key player for us, get back to full fitness and help us for the final 10 games.
“I do believe we can come back fresh and that this break was needed for us, ready to fight for the remaining games.
“We do have a strong team spirit in the team. It’s something that has always been here and is created from the manager, staff and senior players downwards.” he added.
The postponement of football has given Aston Villa the chance to reset in their fight to avoid relegation from the Premier League, insists Ahmed Elmohamady.

Meanwhile, John McGinn keeps recovering from the injury and his return could be a massive boost for Dean Smith’s side for the crucial part of the season.
