Stiliyan Petrov can’t wait to face Rapid Vienna, so the team can give the fans something to smile about again given out disasterous start against Wigan.

Speaking on the official site today Petrov said that he hoped the performance against Wigan was simply a one off and that all of the lads are desperate for victory in the Europa League.

‘I think after this disappointment we want it to come very quick so that we can show everybody that it is a one off.’

Whilst Petrov has praise and respect for the Vienna team, he’s less interested in how they will play and how dangerous they will be and more far more concerned with our own performance.

‘It is about how we are going to play. Everybody wants to be in Europe and we hope that after the next few games we will be in the group stages.’

On another note, Petrov has also backed Fabian Delph to shine in the Premier League this year despite his league debut against Wigan.

‘I’m convinced Fabian is going to become one of the best players in the country. He’s an exceptional player and a great talent who has been clearly determined to make an impact straight away.’
