Paul Lambert says young Aston Villa side is improving

Paul Lambert believes his young Aston Villa side are "growing every time they play" following the 0-0 draw with Arsenal.

The Villa boss also praised assistant Ian Culverhouse as "brilliant" after he took charge of the side following Lambert's one-match touchline ban for inappropriate comments made in the aftermath of Villa's defeat to Manchester City.

The point moved Villa out of the relegation zone and above Reading into 17th, although the Royals have a game in hand.
