Lambert defends 'young' Villa side

Paul Lambert says he "cannot fault the effort" from his young Aston Villa side after they are thrashed 4-0 at home by Tottenham.

Four second-half goals, including a Gareth Bale hat-trick gave Villa their second successive heavy defeat following Saturday's 8-0 loss at Chelsea.

Lambert believes his young side will "continue to grow" and their first-half display proves they are capable of defending well.
