Aston Villa defender Matt Lowton is convinced their form will see them safe from the dropzone.

Villa were unlucky in defeat at Arsenal on Saturday.

"We've shown we can do it in a number of games recently and we believe very strongly that we can," Lowton declared to Villa's website. "We've got to stay positive, we've got to make sure we go out every game and start it right because the quality will come through.

"There is a really positive attitude within the group and everyone is confident to get on the ball and to do what they know they can do."
