Bacuna has cemented his position at right-back and performed admirably in victory over Chelsea.
Lambert told Villa's website: "Leo has a very impressive tally - and from right-back.
"That's really great, particularly when you consider he's just here in the Premier League. He's only just arrived really.
"He's been a big bonus for us. He's offered us a really attacking threat."
