Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert admits their Capital One Cup semifinal has moved to the backburner after their dismal run of defeats.

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert admits their Capital One Cup semifinal has moved to the backburner after their dismal run of defeats.

Since winning 3-1 at Liverpool on December 15, Villa have suffered three heavy defeats in a row, conceding a total of 15 goals and failing to score once themselves.

Lambert said: "The forthcoming Capital One Cup semi-final is not something that I have not really thought about to be honest. The bread and butter is the league. It always is. We are in a fight but so are the other teams."
