Villa arrive at the Lane rock bottom of the Premier League with one win in 10.
On the other hand, we’re unbeaten in nine and are back on home soil after a fine 5-1 win at Bournemouth last time out.
“For me, the most important thing is our game and how we deliver everything that we’ve worked on during the week,” said Mauricio.
“Every opponent wants to beat us and it will be a difficult game against Villa.
“You never know how the opponent wants to play or will play but the most important thing is how we play.
“It’s hard to keep the momentum going and it’s hard to beat teams in the Premier League - this is why we need to work very hard and to be focused on our job in every game.”
