Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was pleased with their new-look central defensive partnership in the draw with Werder Bremen.

Lambert was happy with the individual displays from central defensive duo Ciaran Clark and Ron Vlaar.

"It's not an individual thing - we'll have a look at that as a team thing. I thought they did really well again," he said.

"It is a tough place to come and everybody can see they are a really good side so we did reasonably well."
