Paul Lambert: Impressed with form as Aston Villa continue to pile pressure on le

Villa have enjoyed a surge in confidence in recent weeks following three wins out of four games and a 1-1 draw with Fulham on Saturday.

And while Lambert's men are only three points above the drop zone, the Scot has confidence in his in-form side.

"The pleasing thing at the moment is the players are performing," he said.

"They are getting going. If you can get a couple of wins, that will be great. We have certainly put a lot of pressure on everybody.

"The thing is we are not going into games thinking 'we're not playing well, we don't know what's going to happen.' We are right in it.

"I have nothing but praise for the fans too. It's a demanding place but you have to handle it. With the noise and atmosphere, the crowd are right behind us.

"The team are bouncing off them. That's a powerful thing. That's what is happening at the minute."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
