Villa boss Lambert: Arsenal fans have their players jittery

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert has revealed Arsenal home fans are unsettling the players. Villa fell 2-1 on Saturday after running Arsenal close.

Lambert said: "The crowd get a bit edgy, even the best players get jittery.

"We knew that could be a factor and, the way the crowd are with Arsenal at the minute, you could sense that every mistake they were making, every square pass or back pass was getting a bit of booing."
