Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert insists his struggling youngsters aren't in for a hiding at Arsenal.

Villa have not beaten Arsenal at home for 14 years.

Lambert said: "It's Arsenal but we're at home so we're going to go for it.

"We haven't beaten them here since 1998 so it just shows how hard it's going to be.

"I can't influence what's happened in years gone by but I can influence what goes on now."
