Despite Sunday's lacklustre showing at Craven Cottage, Lambert said Villa must holds their heads high, especially as they trail this weekend's opponents United by just three points in the table.
Lambert said: "Five games unbeaten has been great, we went to some tough places and got some points.
"We're still sat where we are in the table which is great, and if you put it into perspective we're still three points behind Manchester United which is great.
"So there's no doom and gloom, we've lost a game of football but we'll bounce back."
