Lowton: Lambert style suits Aston Villa squad

Aston Villa fullback Matthew Lowton says manager Paul Lambert's style of play suits their squad.

Lowton said that the club has a system of play that suits their mobility and energy levels.

"We don't sit back and let the other team have it," said Lowton. "But at the same time we aren't going to just run into people's faces and get out of position.

"I think the Swansea game is what everyone's talking about. We set out to keep the ball ourselves, but I think a lot of teams who watched us last season have decided to press us.

"Teams have got in our faces a bit more. But it's about getting the points. Maybe at times we set traps.

"Everyone knows how quick Gabby Agbonlahor is, but Christian Benteke is back and Andi Weimann. It does frighten teams and we know it works. So what's the point in trying to change it?"
