Villa pulled off a 3-2 shock at Villa Park.
Lambert told Absolute Radio: âAt half time we had a word. There was no need to panic because we were only a goal down. Iâm not the kind of manager to lose my temper like a raving lunatic.
âEven at 2-1 you always have to have the faith. You always have to have that winning mentality regardless of who youâre up against. The lads have got that belief and Iâm absolutely delighted with them.
He continued: âWe watched Manchester City last week against United and of course they were fantastic. It was a derby game though and those matches are different. The crowd is totally different and the players are up for it another notch. A derby game can go either way. When you come back from that and then you have to play somebody, who they might think, is inferior to them itâs tough. All credit must go to my players and the crowd were absolutely brilliant as well.â
Lambert was speaking to Absolute Radioâs Ian Wright on his Rock âNâ Roll Football Show. Listen Saturdays from 1.30pm absrad.io/RNRFootball
