Lambert: Villa win deserved

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert felt his side fully deserved to take all three points after their narrow 1-0 win against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Gabby Agbonlahor proved to be the matchwinner after bagging his first Premier League goal since last November to ruin former manager Martin O'Neill's day.

The striker fired home from close range just before the hour mark to claim just a second league victory of the season for the dynamic midlanders.

And Lambert told Sky Sports: "I thought we deserved to win the game. We were up against a really good side and it really is a hard place to come, but we just edged it and I thought there were some massive performances."

Asked if that was the best he has seen of his team, Lambert said: "I think as a whole, although we played well against Swansea and West Brom for certain parts, on the day I thought we were outstanding."

And on the performance of midfielder Ashley Westwood, who the club signed in the summer from Crewe, he added: "You'd think he's played at this level for five years and hopefully the way he's performed today and the way he slotted in, I thought he was excellent.

"It's unfair for me to single out any individual. I think as a team, and the spirit they showed, they were outstanding. It was a tough game, but it was also a massive win for us."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
