Charles N'Zogbia put Villa in front when he bent a shot into the top left hand corner, but Fabian Delph flicked a header into his own goal to gift the west Londoners a point.

However, Jol admitted Paul Lambert's men were the better side on the day and was pleased to come away with a draw.

"First I'm pleased because I thought they looked the better team," the Dutchman told Sky Sports. "We were hot and cold today. We had good possession and then we were sloppy again, so we made them stronger.

"If you look at them over the last three to four weeks they have had three wins and one defeat, so I think they did ever so well.

"They press you, they're strong, they've got strong runners, so I think in the end to get a draw at Villa Park where last year we lost in the dying seconds is good.

"To be at 40 points as well makes me a happy customer."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
