Villa boss Lambert frustrated with late Man City goals

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert admitted frustration after their late, late defeat at home to Manchester City.

Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero both struck inside the final ten minutes to earn a 2-0 win for City.

Lambert praised his side's battling qualities despite a "gruesome" four-game run against Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and now City.

"I thought it was a big effort from us," said Lambert despite Villa's third-straight league loss.

"The two lads who scored their goals are probably worth more than our entire team put together.

"I've never known a run as gruesome as that one, but we've come through it without anyone beating us heavily.

"So we've nothing to be ashamed of."
