Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given admits their new signings are still bedding in.

Villa have made their worst ever start to a Premier League campaign, under new boss Paul Lambert.

Given said: "It's been a tough start and we've got a lot of young players who are not experienced in the Premier League.

"They need time to settle in but hopefully the fans stick with us. You look at the fixtures for the next month and we have Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea, which is going to be a tough run."
