Aston Villa manager Martin O´Neill has admitted midfielder Stiliyan Petrov is suffering from a crisis of confidence.

O´Neill has persevered with the Bulgaria international since his £6million move from Celtic 18 months ago despite only spasmodically showing his best form.

O´Neill said: "Stiliyan is a very good player but I´ve seen little spells before where he was also lacking in confidence at Celtic."
