Villa boss Lambert: New style will see us safe

Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is convinced their change of playing style will see them safe from the drop this season.

Lambert believes he has seen enough in the four games since Villa adopted a possession-based game to be sure of survival.

"We have changed a lot over the last three weeks or so, and the players have grasped it really well. They are enjoying having a lot of the ball rather than chasing it.

"We have found a way that really suits us. There will be so many twists and turns throughout the season but if we keep doing what we've been doing we will be fine." Lambert added: "History tells you in years gone by you have to earn the right to stay in the league regardless of how big your name is or how big the club is.

"They say get 40 points and see what happens. We have got 20, last year it took us until January time to get 20 so that's an improvement."
