Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert hailed skipper Gabby Agbonlahor after victory at Arsenal.

It was the performance of Agbonlahor which caused Arsenal problems as he was twice brought down for penalties, firstly by Wojciech Szczesny, and then Laurent Koscielny, who was later sent off.

"I thought we were magnificent after that first initial 15-minute period when we conceded a poor goal," Lambert told Sky Sports.

"After that, I thought we were outstanding and our counter-attack play was fantastic.

"Agbonlahor gave as good a solo performance as I've seen for many, many years. He was unplayable.

"If he keeps that up, and on the last four months of the season, he could definitely get himself back in the England reckoning."
