Lambert upbeat on Villa survival

Paul Lambert believes Aston Villa will avoid relegation this season if they play as well as they did in their 2-1 lose to Arsenal, which saw them slip back into the bottom three.

Santi Cazorla powered in a low shot to give Arsenal a sixth-minute lead, but Villa equalised through Andreas Weimann on 68 minutes before Cazorla scored the late winner.

Lambert says Villa "did not deserve to lose" and thinks his side will remain in the top flight if they continue to play like they did at the Emirates.
