Paul Lambert: Frustrated with Villa gifts

The Villa chief believes his team could have done better for Danny Welbeck's second goal and Tom Cleverley's effort early in the second half.

"That was as well as we started in a few weeks, I thought we were well in the game and then they hit you with that opener," Lambert told Sky Sports.

"But we gifted them two goals, the second and the third was really poor, we had the ball and possession.

"We started the game well but when they are 2-0 up it is hard and we had to get them in at half-time and we talked about trying to get a foot hold in the second half and then we get caught."

Lambert admits United scoring two goals in three minutes in the first half was a big blow.

"The two goals took the wind out of their sails," he said.

"We knew the next goal was vital and we lost that but we never gave up and that was pleasing.

"We try and get results and we will go over it for a number of days but we have to pick ourselves up and bounce back from it."

Trial And Error Rather Than Transition

S

unday, Sunday. Will there be a fan of either team, who if they are winning after 80 mins, won't still be nervous? This could be anything from 0-0 to 5-5, and no one would bat an eye.
