Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert hailed the performance of Leandro Bacuna for their draw with West Ham United.

Lambert was thrilled with the display of the Dutch ace at Upton Park.

He told Villa's website: "We played Leo over on the left.

"He hasn't played there before but he did fantastic for us. He was up against the lad Stewart Downing. I thought he did fantastic for us at left-wing back. I think he did great.

"In a game of this magnitude, I thought he did really well.

"That was one of a few big performances out there."
