Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert feels his team are in good enough form to stave off the threat of being relegated for the first time in 25 years.

He said: "We have got big games, massive games still to come. There will be a lot of twists and turns over the next couple of months.

"People ask if it's now three teams from four but there are a few teams there who will be looking over their shoulder.

"I don't know what teams it might be but you always find a surprise somewhere.

"But we are certainly playing well enough (to stay up). The players believe (we can stay up) because of the way we they are playing.

"We have belief in ourselves that we will always be okay. The way they are playing, honestly I can't ask for anymore."

Lambert added: "Sometimes you walk off a pitch and think 'we didn't deserve anything' but that wasn't the case at Arsenal and hasn't been the case in recent games.

"We've played well against the likes of West Brom, Newcastle in the second half, Everton, West Ham."
