Paul Lambert: Says his Villa side are relishing the chance to play Liverpool on

Villa opened the season with a 3-1 victory at Arsenal before impressing in a 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

And ahead of Saturday evening's Premier League home game with Liverpool, Lambert says his young team are relishing the chance to continue their promising start.

"The games take it out of you physically. But you just sense that they want to go again because of how they are playing," said the Scot.

"They have that feeling of 'I want to go again'. That's the beauty of it.

"The lads know they were outdone by certain aspects of the Chelsea game. I thought we were excellent. Some of the football was terrific.

"We come away from two difficult games with our confidence really vibrant - and so it should be because of the way we played.

"The youthfulness is going a long way as well. I am sure they will come in this afternoon and be wanting to go again.

"There will be one or two bruises. Friday will be light for them and then we go again on Saturday."

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.
