Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has hailed the unity within the squad after victory at Norwich City.

Lambert revealed who he would name Player of the Year after a torrid campaign, in which Villa’s young side were trounced 8-0 at Chelsea and lost a Capital One Cup semi-final to League Two Bradford.

The Scot said: “I would give it to every single one of them for what they have been through.

“Collectively, the way they’ve come through it and the character they’ve shown, they’ve been absolutely fantastic. Whoever gets it, it will be well and truly deserved.

“I like star performances if you can get them. But the most important thing is everybody contributes.

“As a team and a group, they’ve been outstanding.”
