Lambert blames 'poor start' for defeat

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert blames his side's "poor start" to the game after they lost 3-1 to Everton at Villa Park.

Lambert, who took charge of Villa for the first time at home, says he is "disappointed" to have conceded three first-half goals, with Steven Pienaar, Marouane Fellaini and Nikica Jelavic all scoring for Everton.

Villa have now lost their opening two Premier League games of the season for the first time since the 2002-03 campaign.
