Lambert proud of Villa performance in Man Utd defeat

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert was delighted with his players in defeat to Manchester United.

Lambert had nothing but praise for his side despite United's fine comeback.

Lambert said: "I am proud. I thought they were outstanding. I couldn't ask for any more. But that's why Manchester United are a top side. They do it week in, week out.

"I am really proud with what they have given me. I think we have been playing well for a couple of weeks, and hopefully the confidence will be there in abundance after that.

"The Premier League is really tough. They are a young side but they are playing really well at the minute.

"They kept on going. I couldn't fault them for the way the lads played and kept going. The crowd are your gauge. I am absolutely gutted to lose because they gave me everything they had."
